Just wondering.......

 

The braking feel is dramatically improved with friction braking only.  I drive on some mountainous areas and I wish there is a way to disable regen. braking while I'm carving the canyon.

Not that I know of.  I know it is annoying when the HVB gets charged up and you have to use your brakes, waste energy.  You can turn on the downhill assist which uses ICE to slow the car down without using gas. :)

I do use downhill assist almost all the time but there are times when I want to drive the car with friction braking only.  The pedal pressure is much less sensitive and a lot more linear with friction braking.
