Today I discovered the heads-up menu setting that shows how much EV range I have left, which led me to this question.

Is it more effective to use the paddles for regen or the brakes? If brakes provide just as much energy I assume there would be no paddles.

Paddles are nice because they can't activate the actual brakes. The brake pedal does the same thing if you use it gently. When you push the pedal beyond what the regen can handle it will use traditional brakes (friction). I typically use the paddles unless I need to brake fast.

Paddles & Brake Lights

Quick question--do the brake lights come on when using the paddles to decelerate? I looked in the owner's manual, but I couldn't find the answer.
