Has anyone seen any posts about why Nissan has not (or could not) include a method to allow for "virtual downshifting" of the vehicle thus allowing a higher efficiency re-gen system to be activated by the driver when needing to slow down, as in approaching unexpected slower traffic conditions or while driving down a lengthy grade? Rather then riding the brake (lightly) to engage the re-gen, I would like to just downshift into a "virtual lower gear" to keep the speed down and increase the re-gen.
