All EV manufacturers are aware that many drivers don’t want regenerative braking. There is a control setting (typically the default mode) that has just enough regeneration to mimic engine braking for an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE). Most of the EVs also have controls where the driver can select different driving modes, such as , “Sport”, “Normal”, and “Economy”. The choice made has a slight effect on regeneration… more regeneration being used for “Economy” mode.
The way one-pedal regeneration is implemented varies by manufacturer:
Some don’t even offer it (at this time). An example is the new Volkswagen ID.4. This model has several levels of regeneration that the driver can choose (or not choose). Other than the minimal amount (see above), regeneration is engaged when the driver first touches the bake pedal. Push on the brake pedal with more force and the typical hydraulic brakes engage, in addition to regeneration.
Chevrolet Bolt (my car), has two selections, one labeled “D” which mimics and an ICE (see above). The other selection is labeled “L” which is effective, but modest one-pedal driving. For maximum regeneration, there is a “paddle” mounted under on the underside of the steering wheel. The paddle can be easily pulled with left hand fingers. This maximum regeneration can be used in both “D” and “L” modes. Step on the brake pedal, you get hydraulic brakes along with regeneration.
The current Nissan LEAF has a some regeneration (see above), but also a “button” that can be pushed to put (and keep) the car in one-pedal mode.
Hyundai Kona EV, has minimal regeneration (see above) plus two paddles under the steering wheel. One paddle is pulled to select any of three additional regeneration levels. If this paddle is held then released, one-pedal driving is engaged. The second pedal is to cancel increased regeneration and return to the default mode.
I expect Tesla and others have there own version of one-pedal driving, but I can’t speak to that. In four years of driving both an older Nissan LEAF and a Chevy Bolt, I can say with certainty that using increased regeneration does take a little while to get use to, but is easier to do than to explain.
