Regen on Demand™ (steering wheel paddle enabled regenerative braking)

  • The driver can take a more active role in the electric vehicle driving experience
  • Paddles on the steering wheel allow the driver to slow ELR down, while feeding recaptured energy back into the battery
  • Provides vehicle deceleration that is more than what a typical vehicle experiences while coasting
  • Provides control and dynamic performance characteristics similar to downshifting in a manual-transmission vehicle
  • The driver can engage or disengage as needed, to adjust to changing traffic conditions or before making a tight turn
  • Release the paddle and the vehicle can coast normally or be ready to accelerate
  • The feature does not bring the vehicle to a full stop
