I am hearing from reliable sources within the company that Tesla has removed the “Low” setting for regenerative braking, and I am trying to find out why. The “Low” setting has been a life-saver on numerous occasions on slick, icy, snowy road surfaces.
No possible rationale comes to mind why Tesla would want to remove such an *essential* safety feature of the car. Until I get a decent explanation, I can’t in good conscience download and install any more software updates in my car, as I need the “Low” regen setting as we enter winter. Which means every time I get in the car, it now bugs me to download software, and I guess it’ll be doing that for the next six months or even permanently.
Anybody know the reason, and also, in which specific software update is the "Low" removed?
