    I've been driving a BMW i3 for about 18 months and the regen is very nice allowing me to pretty much drive with one pedal. Now in an S90D it seems the regen fades away as the car slows down so that around 2-3mph the car is just rolling. It seems almost impossible to actually stop the car at a light just with regen, I almost always have to use the brakes.

    Is that your experience as well, or are you able to bring the car to a complete stop on level ground without touching the brakes?

    I believe that is by design. I've possessed 3 MS's and one X. They all behave exactly as you described, although I find the MX has much more stout regen.
