      Yep, and here we have Mat from CarWow dialing it in from Norway.

      Don't want to sound like a luddite, but damn, the regen vs sailing modes confuses me. Why would "sailing" be more efficient than regen, unless you're so bad at driving on regen that you're constantly slowing and accelerating? if you need to "sail" why not just lift the throttle less? Obviously it's less efficient to slow down and speed up a ton no matter what you're driving.....

      Exactly. But the worst thing about any type of car is it's "enthusiast" zealots, and when it comes to any sort of driving efficiency the hypermilers always think they know better. There's a vocal minority who are true believers in coasting, "pulse-and-glide", shifting to neutral, etc. It's infuriating and not supported by data*, but they're the ones who are most active on forums and with giving feedback to manufacturers, so that's how we wind up with regen paddles, multiple settings for regen levels, and other unnecessarily complex solutions that appeal only to hypermilers and confuse normal drivers.




      *"data" is not the plural of "anecdote"
