There are so many different settings on this car its hard to know where to start from now with regenerative. Braking I like it, but I dont like it essentially what it means is as youre driving when you take your foot off the gas it will automatically break. You can literally feel the car pulling you back, which is absolutely fantastic from a safety perspective. But really do you want the car to be pulling you back when youre driving not really, especially not when youre driving a Jaguar?
