That's a good question. I usually read the owner's manual cover to cover, but somehow -- if it's in the manual -- I missed it. :D

Yes, I use that all the time too. But is it really not known...?

I did take me about 7 months to figure out what it was for. I noticed it early, but never played with it.

It is well known if you want to lock your car from the hatch.

I don’t know if this qualifies as a tip, but today I got an email from my dealership asking me to fill out a questionaire regarding e-Pedal for some kind of gift certificate. There was some interesting information in there, but one particular thing caught my attention. They said there are only six possible combinations with eco/e-Pedal/D&B.

Eco ON & e-Pedal ON in D
Eco OFF & e-Pedal ON in D
Eco ON & e-Pedal OFF in D
Eco ON & e-Pedal OFF in B
Eco OFF & e-Pedal OFF in D
Eco OFF & e-Pedal OFF in B

I like to drive with the e-Pedal in B mode, but I’ve long suspected it doesn’t actually do anything. Now we have confirmation.

So do I but for a reason since I constantly shift (still) to get perceived better performance and efficiency to match driving conditions and I use all the "Eco On" options plus neutral.
