Those people have the ice car mentality of letting off the throttle = coasting. As murphys90d pointed out teslas one pedal driving is different in that you must not let off the throttle completely but rather feather it, it takes a minute to get used to it. I agree setting it to low doesn’t really do anything to help prevent skids, in my opinion.My post was a reaction to those that have said that regen should be set to low when driving on snowy and icy roads. This seems to me like defeating antilock braking on the same surfaces, and may not generally provide the best results in most circumstances. Yes, you can coast with one pedal driving thru pedal modulation, but it is the regen braking I was trying to address. Even letting off for full regen braking in snow is antilock and anti skid.
I have noticed that both regen braking and normal braking are both anti-lock. I do not think it helps control the car in any way to turn regen on low for those cars that have this setting (pre-late 2020).

Yes, I seems the regen reduces itself to avoid any wheel slippage on slick and icy roads.Are you saying that if the tires start to lock up while under regen braking, the car will lessen the amount of regen to allow the tires to regain traction like ABS does for mechanical brakes? If so, that's pretty neat.
Just asking, how do you know it is anti skid? I had all four wheels lock up on a slick road surface. What year and model have you driven in icy roads? Thanks for the info.
Thanks. Mine has no option to reduce regen. That was an option earlier but no longer seems to exist.I have a June 2020 build LR+. It has the option to reduce regen. Strange we are getting different results. Perhaps there was a regen anti controller added at some point that mine has, as they phased out the driver selectable option to reduce regen a few months later.
No, modern cars do not slam on the ABS. I also have and an Audi and bmw 4WD that do not skid when I transfer my foot from the accelerator to the brakes. Swearing does nothing to help your point.What tires do you have? I've driven with 9 inches on the road and my S was freaking plowing the road. I've never lost traction in all 4. You can see the traction control in the IC as amber wavy parallel lines.
Modern cars with ABS, slam your god damn brakes. No feathering. ****ing slam the brakes.*
*Assumes you just want to minimize stopping distance. Turning the wheel, however little, introduces a bunch of other factors, this is about your comment about 4 wheels locking in a AWD dual motor Tesla model S.
