Someone help me with this? This does not seem to pass my smell test. Seems like the driver in this mode would use more resources … wouldn’t the battery drain slightly quicker in steep acceleration vs modest (no correlation to jackrabbit gas car starts?). Also it seems sport mode would mentally cause the driver to drive more aggressive (green ball turning yellow). (aside: I understand Sports mode also changes steering).Efficiency
…I primarily use the sport mode which has a more aggressive pedal map, but is noted by GM not to reduce efficiency over the normal mode.
Also then why would they provide normal vs sport if sport was just as economical? Just for the drivers “experience” and “feedback” (ie. some want a sportier car vs econ “feel” car).
