Here’s How One Pedal Works

The all-new 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV is going to be a breath of fresh air for many drivers. Not only is it estimated to deliver more than 200 miles of driving range, but it should offer a unique one pedal driving experience with its Regen on Demand system.

Drivers will be able to use the regenerative braking system in four driving modes:

  1. Operating in Drive and easing off the accelerator
  2. Operating in Drive and using the Regen on Demand Paddle on the steering wheel
  3. Operating in Low and easing off the accelerator
  4. Operating in Low and using the Regen on Demand paddle

Each mode uses a progressively stronger one-pedal driving experience. In some situations, drivers may be able to come to a complete stop without using the brake pedal. However, one pedal driving experience modes do not eliminate the need to use the brake pedal, especially during emergency situations when fast braking is needed.

By utilizing the Regen on Demand braking system, drivers will be able to enhance the Bolt EV’s battery operation and maximize their driving range. After thorough vehicle simulations, engineers found that one-pedal driving increased the Bolt EV’s driving range by as much as 5%.

The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV will be coming to Hanner Chevrolet by the end of the year. So, you’ll be able to take it around Abilene, TX real soon!
