My guess is Ford and Chevy see it as a "lower" gear in the sense that Ford has described it in a way that makes it sound like a downshift on a manual transmission to use engine braking.My Volt has L on the shifter for more aggressive regenerative braking. The problem is this implies a lower gear, as it is on all cars with automatic transmission, but that's not what it really is.
Shouldn't the label for the selection describe what it does?
""In the Mach-E, when you need a bit more deceleration (say, for an upcoming red light), you can press the L button in the center of rotary shifter to engage low range and slow the electric Mustang SUV a bit more without touching the brake pedal." (From Kelley Blue Book)
