New video from Ford on one-pedal driving and drive modes. The modes don't look that customizable. I think a forth "Custom" mode is needed.
What part did you want to customize? It looked like you could turn on/off one pedal driving and sound in every mode.

Knowing me, I'll have it in Unbridled with the Propulsion sounds turned off 90% of the time. The whisper will come in handy on road trips. I don't know if I see a situation where I'll ever turn off one pedal driving.

I would like to be able to adjust throttle response/steering/lighting/regen/max HP independently of each other. Also, a rear-wheel-drive only option for summer cruising or drifting would be nice.

Question for someone with EV driving experience. I cannot recall reading this but does one-pedal driving come to a complete stop at some point and is just a matter of getting used to the feel of it?

Yes, you can generally come to a full stop with ease. The learning curve is quite short.

Hopefully the stopping distance is too ;)
LOL! Well you don't just take your feet off the pedals in a panic stop--the brake pedal still works (and you're encouraged to use it when necessary).

It annoys me that they always mention the ambient light, since the select model does not have it. What a shame. :confused:

You can turn off the ambient light and sounds so that's a plus but it does make changes to steering acceleration and other driving features being tied to the level of regen which might be a show stopper for me. I'd be stuck with a driving mode I don't want to get a feature I do want.

Be in the check list for the test drive.

Hope they do like the Dutch are doing it where you go out with an MachE experienced driver.

Only EV I've ever drove was test driving a Model Y. They had 1-pedal on and I was driving in heavy traffic, I know I annoyed the crap out of everyone behind me with my very sudden decellerations forgetting that I couldn't release the accelerator to coast.

I'm looking forward to getting used to it though!

Funny, my wife hated the strong regen in the Bolt at first, but now she loves it and doesn't like to drive the MB250 because the regen is not strong enough.

That takes some getting used to: finding the coast spot and not instinctively just lifting off the pedal to coast.

I think I see some PCM software calibration software in your future. :)

One of my F250 trucks has a knob with 6 presets. Each one is for a custom PCM calibration that I can switch on the fly. I have a stock setting, one for economy, one for a little more performance, another for high idle (PTO use) and a couple for towing (exhaust brake use).

I seriously doubt that I will attempt to do anything like that with the MME though. I will just take whatever "experiences" that are programmed and work with it.

Curious, do electric cars with one-pedal driving automatically turn on the brake light when slowing down, or does it only initiate when using the brake pedal?
