The driver can stop the vehicle by pulling and holding the left side paddle shifter.

Operation

  • Pull and hold the left side ( ) of the paddle shifter while coasting.
  • When the vehicle speed is above 3 km/h (1 mph), regenerative braking level will return to the previously set level when the paddle shifter is released.
  • When the vehicle speed is below 3 km/h (1 mph), the vehicle stopping control will be maintained when the paddle shifter is released.
  • While one pedal driving function is operating, the driver can control the vehicle stopping position by accelerator pedal.

Operating condition(s)

  • The driver's door is closed.
  • EPB is automatically activated when:
  • The driver's door is opened.
  •  Seat belt is not fastened
  • The hood is opened.
  • The tailgate is opened.
  • Vehicle stops for more than approximately 5 minutes
  • At the request of other systems.

i-Pedal

i-Pedal is controlled by acceleration pedal. It provides vehicle speed control without manually controlling the paddle shifter.

Operation

  1. Pull the left side ( ) of the paddle shifter to level 3 regenerative braking system.
  2.  Pull the left side of the paddle shifter once again when the regenerative braking level reaches level 3.
  • Check i-Pedal indicator symbol i- Pedal on the instrument cluster.

WARNING

  • Do not solely rely on one pedal driving to stop the vehicle. Stopping the vehicle may not be possible depending vehicle and road conditions. Pay attention to the road condition ahead and apply the brake if necessary.
  • Avoid increasing the regenerative braking level suddenly on slippery roads (like snow or icy conditions) because it may lead slipping of the tires and skidding of vehicle. It can be dangerous due to the loss of the vehicle's steering force.

CAUTION

When the vehicle is stopped or parked by i-Pedal on the steep hills, be sure to depress the brake pedal.
