So this thread kind of wandered off from my original topic, which was to question about doing regen as part of gas and/or brake operation. Anyway, I have some new information, thanks to the just posted engaget video of driving the Tesla Model S. According to what they were talking about in the video, the Model S does indeed do all regen as part of the gas pedal operation, leaving the brakes as traditional friction brakes only. Also interesting, they said the Model S has an accelerometer and will kick on the brake lights after exceeding some deceleration threshold.

Correct me if I'm wrong (LOL), but if I remember correctly, I think it was WopOnTour that said in "D", 20% of the regen is in the gas pedal, and 80% in the brake pedal, and in "L" it's 80% in the gas and 20% in the brake (before the transition to the friction pads).
It could be a total misfire on my part, but I think this was the ratio. I'm just glad GM made it so darn easy to switch between these modes on the fly!
