    Do the brake lights come on when I take my foot off the accelerator? Just wondering.

    Yes, if regenerative braking causes the car to slow down fast enough - there is a threshold that has to be crossed for the brake lights to come on.

    Thanks for letting me know too @Runt8 I was always curious about the regenerative braking and brake light.

    If you look at the image of the car on the display tiny little red tail lights come on. They seem to be just a couple of red pixels.

    I came here to ask this same question, thanks for posting it. I haven't noticed the tail lights on the car in the display, but can't wait to see it this afternoon.

    Look for the red dummy light instead of at the taillights. Much easier to see
