    Default Can the traction control system reduce regen as it can reduce aceleration?

    Thinking about driving in "L" in very slipery conditions, if the traction control can not reduce regen this could lead to loss or reduction of control.

    The brakes seamlessly blend regen and hydraulic braking as needed, and the ABS modulates braking as needed to keep the wheels rolling and maintain control while avoiding skids. Myself, I would just leave it in D, especially in very slippery conditions (it is front-wheel drive).

    Thinking about it from driving in "D" if braking with greater regen as much or more than "L" .the if the anti lock function is needed it would have ot also momentarly stop regen for the antilock breaking to work correctly.

    And until we know the answer to what the traction control will do in "L" without the break peddel being depressed, I would agree that under slipery conditions the use of "L" should be avoided.
