It does look on the dash like regen is better with ePedal. I thought the friction brakes get applied only towards the end of the stopping process with ePedal.
I will report back in a few weeks with my unscientific analysis.
This is also the impression I got. "Sometimes" I can almost sense when the friction brakes are actually engaging at low (under 5 mph) speed.
One way that might be easier to test is when SOC is very high. E Pedal feels the same but its mostly friction braking then. I have only charged past 83% twice and not willing to make a habit of charging to 100% needlessly but I know there are several here who simply plug it in. If you are one of them, might be something to pay attention to?
As far as higher regen in E Pedal; that is proven. In tests on my 40 kwh and E Plus, I am seeing regen more than 50% greater in E Pedal over Eco B
