Is this something you could turn off. I read somewhere you can turn off the regen breaking by holding down one of the steering wheel paddles?
I thought I read that this Kia can recharge from the running engine. I've also read that this lag sounds disruptive or unsafe; how bad is it?I can't imagine it can be durned off. Regen is the ONLY way for a hybrid to recharge the battery pack.
I have a PHEV coming in this month so I don't have any experience with this yet and I understand that turning off regen on the PHEV isn't as big of deal as pure HEV. I'm thinking when the PHEV is running HEV how big of deal this would be. I'm worried about yields, roundabouts, etc.The lag can be pretty stunning when it happens, especially if you really need to get moving to avoid an accident. Stomp the pedal, but it has to think about what to do for a couple seconds before it responds.
