Tesla may bring low regen mode back to their cars. This is hinted at in the release notes for the new update, which one of the owners accidentally saw.
One Tesla owner accidentally saw the release notes for a supposedly new update, according to the Not A Tesla App. One of the interesting observations was the reintroduction of low regen mode. This mode makes it easier for drivers to adapt to the regenerative braking system (RBS). This system is unique to EVs and hybrids, but can sometimes result in reduced range and increased brake use.
Previously, Tesla offered low and normal regeneration options. However, newer models only used normal mode, which is a more efficient option. If the update does bring low regeneration capability, it will give drivers more control over their driving experience. Each of them will be able to choose for themselves the best option that best suits their driving style and will help them adapt more easily after using a car with an internal combustion engine.
Regenerative braking is an important feature of electric vehicles. It allows drivers to slow down without using the brake pedal. In fact, by releasing the accelerator pedal, the car starts to brake, recuperating energy and extending the life of the brake components. Using this system, you can increase the range of the car by up to 10 percent and extend the life of the brakes by more than 50 percent.
