one pedal drive
It seems that the low range only regens down to 4 mph, then starts to apply positive torque. If there is a way that a knowledgeable tech can reprogram the "automatic transmission creep" out of the early cars, then I would love to know about it. More than the touch dash, more than the impossible drivers window, the lurch forward when you lift off the brake is the one thing that I REALLY DON'T LIKE. The only AT car in the family is my mother-in-law's Taurus and it barely creeps at all. If we could trash the creep, we would be much closer to a one pedal drive. As it is, riding the brake in traffic so that I don't run into the car ahead makes me grind my teeth. If I trade this car between now and retirement, it will be because of that one "feature."
Happily it is not wasting power torquing the motor against the brake. At least not all the time. I believe that it monitors the brake light. If you come to a complete stop on a significant hill, then release the brake, you can feel the momentary lag before the torque arrests a rearward roll. Ergo it isn't on all the time. That would have been a gross oversight in a well developed package. Still the creep is so neatly integrated that a month passed before I was satisfied that it wasn't, like a high idle ICE with AT, pulling the whole time you sit at the light. I'm really glad that we have hills here so that I could see that.
