E pedal is a tool and there is a right and wrong way to use any tool and E pedal is no exception. I used it exclusively for a while then switched to only using it for major deceleration events or when coming to a stop with the goal of not using the brake pedal at all.
When looking at all the drive modes, E pedal allows the full range of motion based on how much you ease off the acceleration. It is not for the jumpy person. It does provide very fine speed control and acts like any very low gear in a normal car.
I tested E pedal on my 40 and 62 kwh LEAF and it does provide a much higher level of regen (50-60% more than B mode depending on speed) so it is beneficial in that;
it regains more of the power used to attain your speed of travel
Is easy to engage.
But also higher levels of regen means a bigger hit to the pack. Now how much bigger? Hard to say but I will tell you that I have seen much higher regen levels than you would see at a charger when SOC was well above the charging curve. Considering the very short duration of the E pedal events, I figure there is an effect but low on the priority poll of concern
