I had a Prius for ten years and learned that the brake pads did not engage till you hit about 7 mph meaning till that point it was all regen braking. I wonder if then Clarity is similar. Buy the way I loved my Prius but I have to say I love my Clarity even more. Almost 2000 miles and I have yet to put gas in it!

This might help.

I have noticed that when I drive in ECON mode, whatever the level of regen I order, the gauge shows more charge return by braking than by regen. Is this what we expect to happen? I am not sure if I understand this feature...

I noticed that using the regen paddles at 4 chevrons give more time to recharge the battery vs. braking to a stop.

But then the drivers behind me gets confused when I am regen braking without any brake lights.

As many tailgaters as I have in this area (oil field workers in a hurry to cash their paychecks), I'd be asking for an accident by using the regen paddles with anyone riding up behind me.

I'm shocked it doesn't put the brake light on!
