Regen Braking Adjustment?

[B][B]

Just a thought...Tesla has an available braking adjustment that allows the driver to select a less abrupt braking force, as in the immediate braking when you let up on the accelerator, that allows for a more typical braking feel. Regeneration still occurs, but to a lesser extent.

I would like to see that made available in the i3, as well as software updates being transmitted over the net.

Agree? Disagree?

I agree that it would be beneficial for owners like you but there's quite a bit of pricing difference between the i3 and Model S

Regen Braking

Thanks for the response.

I know that there is a significant price difference between the i3 and Tesla, with the latter being around twice as expensive.

It was just a wish on my part, apart from which Tesla provided that option as to braking via a wireless software update that was transmitted to its cars, which itself is pretty cool, you must admit.

Thanks again.

Richard

To Nomoreemissions:

I see from your other posts, which I appreciate, that you appear to have elected to go with Tesla, given the problems you've had with your i3.

I know how disappointing a new car can be when something you no doubt looked forward to "goes south."
