@Hmp10 very interesting reading, I didn’t know that battery power could be used to assist the motor in decelerating the car, and finds it brilliant. I received some clues as well on a different forum that the Leaf uses the brakes when regeneration is not strong enough to decelerate the car to a complete stop. Just read yesterday that the next OTA software update on the 3 would include the single pedal driving (complete stop of the car). That would definitely resolve my deceleration problem when it gets cooler with a linear predictive deceleration. Wonder which system Tesla would privilege though (using battery power or brakes). I do agree that touching the brake pedal to activate the regeneration does not make sense, it is an extra unnecessary step.
