Couple of questions maybe someone can comment on: I've noticed that with the paddles the max regeneration (at least as shown on the power gauge on the instrument cluster) is not as great as the regeneration you get if you apply some brakes. That is, if the gauge shows about halfway through the green with four chevrons of regeneration selected, then you put your foot on the brake, the gauge will increase to three quarters or more of the way through the green. Unlike my previous car, the feathering of the regenerative braking and mechanical brakes is so good that I really can't tell when the mechanical brakes kick in. So, first question: Is the gauge accurate when it shows higher regeneration while braking? That is, does the brake pedal do more regeneration than the paddles allow? Separately, in experimenting briefly going down a steep hill, I noticed that while four chevrons of regeneration was not sufficient to keep the car from accelerating, if I turned on cruise control and set it to, say, 25mph, the car would show more aggressive regeneration and would more or less maintain that speed, even without my using the brakes. Which leads to my second question: When the cruise control slows you down, will it only use regenerative braking, or will it resort to the mechanical brakes if that's not sufficient? I tried feeling the discs at the bottom of the hill; they were quite hot but not scorching, which was inconclusive since I did have to brake a bit very near the bottom, although I really have no sense of how quickly discs heat up or how quickly they cool. I'm curious about this because, if the cruise control does indeed do more aggressive regeneration than the paddles without resorting to calipers, that would be an easy way to descend a steep hill without touching the brakes.
