    you could just very lightly depress the brakes, you could even move the brake switch up to make it more sensitives to allow you to turn on brake lights by just resting your foot on the pedal.

    thats like impossible, the battery pack is worth more than the car. I think a used BMW i3 REX is a good electric choice, it has a backup range extender gasoline generator. So no matter how bad battery range gets you will always have your gasoline backup to get you places.

    Heres a funny complaint made to the government about the system.

    the paddle shift on the outlander PHEV is not for shifting gears anymore instead its for the intensity of the regenerative braking its kinda confusing.
