But what’s most impressive is the Kona Electric’s regenerative braking and how it lets you drive using just one pedal. It’s a system similar to the e-Niro’s that offers different levels of regeneration. ‘Off’ means the car will coast when you lift off the throttle and hardly lose any speed. As the levels increase, they use the motor to decelerate more aggressively when you lift off. It’s similar to the engine braking you get when changing down gears in an ICE car, clicking the left paddle to ramp up regeneration when slowing down.
