Yesterday was the first time I've ever charged in range mode. I didn't think I'd really need it, but there was just enough uncertainly about where I'd be going, that I did it. As a result (of course) I had no regen for a while. I knew there's no regen when the battery is above some level, but it still kind of took me by surprise. My ideal EV would have pure glide when there's no foot on either pedal, and would use regen on the brake pedal (as the Prius does). I find it's a more relaxed driving experience when the car can glide and the accelerator pedal only applies power, not braking. Both the Xebra and my ill-fated EV Porsche glide. With the Roadster, it's much harder to maintain a steady speed since a slight reduction in pedal results in strong braking. And yet, it felt very odd to me not to have regen, and not to be able to slow down without using the brake pedal. I guess I'm getting used to the way Tesla does it.
