I have a question in regards of recuperation.
Which mode are you using?

Normally, I drive short tracks in my town with a lot of stop and go. Therefor I use always B5.
It is easy to control recup with the pedal.

Does this make sens in general?

In terms of fuel/electricity consumption I think it is much of a muchness, more a question of driving style and preference than anything else. However, when driving in hilly or mountainous places, the paddles are meant to control your rate of descent.

I leave my setting at D or B2 when I set off, using the higher B settings to slow the car when needed, rather than use the actual disc brakes, returning to B2/D as I accelerate again. I feel this gives me the optimum regen benefit, with the side bonus of reducing brake wear. After 40K km of testing various B options, this seems to return the best fuel mileage for my driving routine.

I tend to use B0 on high speed roads and move up to the higher regen modes when I need to reduce speed. I can drive many miles in busy traffic without ever touching the footbrake.

There is a short stretch of road on my commute with 7 speed humps spaced about 50 yards apart. I leave the lever in B5 and don't have to brake at all, just slowing on the regen.

I find the regen shortcut very handy and use it a lot. Pull back on the joystick to go straight to B3 and again to shift to B5.

B5 is perfect for slow down in the snow / ice streets :geek:

My question is : does B5 can inflict extra pain on our weak battery ? I think it does not help for long battery live to use B5

I can't think that using B5 is any worse than using a high speed charger, but I'm not an expert on battery technology.

The other day I was driving down a small hill with the regen at B5, the display said that I had added a mile to the battery range :)

I always use B5 in heavy traffic. The car stops on a dime. :)

Makes for a stress-free journey.

Chademo on our PHEV can push around 16/20kw

Regen in B5 can be above 40kw

Charging on chademo is a constant and continuous high power recharge.
Regen is normally few seconds ... but can be even quite long in a long downhill

For what I have notice, people that use B5 regularly have got their battery to degradate faster then other

The best batteries are from people which don't touch the B setting.

This must be wrong, because even in D, if you push the break pedal, it will do up to B5 automatically.

It does not.
