Brake lights/regen at stop sign

With regen on max I usually dont touch the brake pedal if I'm the second vehicle in line approaching a stop sign. Do the brake lights illuminate at such low speeds? Or do you need a fairly rapid decel? And is there any way to know when the lights are coming on in regular driving?

There's no way answer as to when the brake lights illuminate while brake regen is slowing you down. I'm sure there's some sort of algorithm based upon the rate is deceleration and speed. I've noticed the lights don't activate with slight deceleration at medium speeds initially but it'll eventually activate.
