As posted previously, the latest update (2019.361) received some notable changes. One of those being the new Stopping Mode.
I thought I would love the true one pedal driving and it does deliver at that. But for me, after giving it a few days, gave up on it and switched back to the "rolling" mode.
Was more work having to perfectly modulate the accelerator at every single stop. Is also a little jerky when it actually comes to a stop.
Where it bothered me the most was simply pulling in and out of the garage. Usually, just put it in reverse, get it rolling and the car rolls out to the driveway. I can put it in Drive before it stops rolling and it continues to roll until I'm far enough back to just hit the accelerator and take off in the forward direction.
Same thing, pulling in. I have a little bit of a tight fit in front and like the car just slowly rolling until I reach my mark then tap the brake and put it in park. With Stopping Mode on, was just constant jerky stops trying to perfect the spot where I place the car. With the tight fit, I roll in very slowly. So doing that with stopping mode wasn't practical.
For traffic lights, I use regen to slow down and same thing, let it roll to the crosswalk and tap the brake. With Stopping Mode, have to keep hitting the accelerator to get it to the line. More work than just free-rolling to the line. Don't mind the quick tap of the brake. Certainly easier for me to do when I reach the point where i want the car to stop rather than constantly modulating the accelerator all the way there. Takes more effort and thought.
Love the concept, but it's just not for me at this time. I'll give it another try after Tesla improves it, as I know they will.
The positive is that I still have the power increase benefit and, at least to me, it feels like overall regen is stronger than it was, which I do like. Thought I would want the auto stop feature too, but turns out, the last little freeroll is nice. It allows for a smoother stop and takes less effort by the driver.
Just my two cents.
