I keep meaning to test this. Need to get one of my kids to drive behind me and tell me if the brake lights activate.I've been using L2 for most of my driving lately. I assume the brake lights turn on when in regen, but no brake pedal is applied? Right?
Not apples to apples but the two higher end Tesla’s I’ve driven do activate the brake lights on regen, at least according to the status display on the dash.My guess is L2 does not use the brake lights because it would require some intricate logic programming. I could be wrong.
I would say that brake lights are there to indicate to other drivers you and your vehicle are slowing down or stopping. When driving the Tesla’s, at least, when I lifted my foot off the accelerator pedal and the car went in to regen mode it was not unlike hitting the brakes because the car rapidly slowed so can see why they would come on.the brake lights are supposed to excite those behind your car to realize traffic is slowing or stopping...having the lights on whenever the regenerative braking is on would negate that safety...
