I noticed my regen (pressing left paddle ) auto disengages after some seconds. Is there a way to turn that off? I like the one-pedal driving style, and that appears to be the closest we can get.
I use manual too for the same reasons you do. I'm never confident with the consistency of regen braking. Manual mode gives me the assurance of a consistent, predictable outcome.In Auto Recuperation, a paddle setting is forgotten when you next touch the brake IIRC. I liked that mode's ability to slow down for cars in front but was less keen about it's inconsistency and (when it did work) it's over-conservatism about slowing for other hazards. My default setting now is Manual Recuperation but in that mode, while a paddle setting persists generally, after using and then disengaging cruise, it's forgotten and I like cruise a lot.
I don't often do a lot of driving on dual-carriageways / motorways but, when I do, I put it back to Auto Recuperation for the slowing down for cars thing. Full adaptive cruise came with an overly expensive option pack.
