Adaptive Regen



Turn off regen when there is no one in front of the car (i.e. coast).


I had Model S P85D after our Model X. Now I have BMW IX3 and the adaptive regeneration I would like to have on Tesla models. Basically when the road is empty zero regain, when there is a car front, when there is a stop sign or car front it will regenerate and slow down the car. Actually, this s the setting I use with BMW. I can also adjust it to low or high region but with this feature, you won’t need anything.

Moderator: Since this reduces range and efficiency, it seems unlikely Tesla would do this.

I can see why some people would like this, but I prefer current behavior. So if it's ever implemented, it should be purely optional. I don't want TACC to decide how much regen I'm getting when driving manually. It doesn't know that I want to take an exit, for example.

(By the way it is true that zero regen improves efficiency as long as you don't brake afterwards, but I can do that with my foot and the energy indicator bar).

I really like this idea. My sisters Chevy Volt has multiple levels of regen, it has a paddle behind the steering wheel to press for more regenerative braking. I love driving with that feature, except I hate driving her car in general. If there was a way to call out one of the steering wheel buttons to apply more regen, that would be awesome.

Zero regen is a proven hypermiling technique and sure beats fumbling with the shift lever to delicately put the car into Neutral.

Not interested.  Suggestion has no value.
