Instead of losing energy when slowing down, this feature helps you transfer energy to the battery. It works like this: When driving in Low mode at any speed, you can slow down – or even come to a complete stop – by simply lifting your foot off the accelerator. This means you may use your brakes less and help increase your range. One-Pedal Driving and deceleration features may be limited when the battery is near full charge or cold. You should always use your brake pedal if you need to stop quickly. See owner’s manual for full details on One-Pedal Driving and Regen on Demand.
Electric vehicle sales are negligible, at this point in time. They’re a blip on the sales radar, a fart in a windstorm. Quebec is the first province to announce they will be setting sales quotas, much to the chagrin of their dealer networks who are crying foul. Several provinces, including ., Quebec and Ontario still offer huge rebates to those who purchase electrics, much to the chagrin of everyone who doesn’t. Gas prices remain stubbornly low, and look to for the next year or so, which stymies the single best marketing tool a zero emission car can offer. The electric vehicle is the castor oil of the car world. It’s good for us, but nobody wants it.
