One of the most interesting aspects of electric cars is to be able to "ride with just one pedal". Thank you to regenerative braking, just lift your foot off the accelerator to slow down the car, even significantly. It is a system that makes driving much more comfortable, especially in urban areas and which allows you to maximize energy recovery.
There are, however, some situations in which regenerative braking is less effective. For example, when it is cold and the battery has not reached an optimal operating temperature or when the accumulator is fully charged. In these situations, therefore, regenerative braking can be limited. This means that the deceleration becomes less effective. The driver, therefore, will have to make greater use of traditional brakes.
also the Tesla, like all electric bikes, "suffer" from this problem, indeed, it would be better to say, "suffered" since there is an interesting novelty. The American automaker has announced the distribution of the new one software update 2022.16.0.2 which introduces a very useful feature, at least on Model 3 and Model Y. By enabling it, the car will be able to "simulate" regenerative braking with the mechanical brakes when, in fact, it is limited.
MORE HOMOGENEOUS BEHAVIOR
Tesla describes this new feature introduced with the latest update as follows:
Your vehicle can now automatically use the brakes for constant deceleration when regenerative braking is limited due to battery temperature or state of charge.
To activate this new function, select "Controls", "Pedals and steering" and then "Apply brakes when regenerative braking is limited".
