Creep Mode
In many EVs it’s possible to set up one-pedal driving by setting the regenerative braking to maximum turning off “creep mode.” When creep mode is on, the vehicle typically starts moving forward when the driver releases the brakes. This isn’t the case with the VF8. Maximum regen is not enough to bring the car to a halt. However, once the vehicle stops and the driver takes a foot off the brake, the vehicle begins to roll back as if in Neutral. Fortunately, when this occurred, we were able to stop before rolling into the car behind us, to the relief of other occupants.
