What are regen pedals?

  • The recuperation paddles of the smart are paddles on the steering wheel with the help of which the driver can adjust how strong the smart recuperate should, if you take the foot completely from the stream-pedal.

    Each time the smarts is restarted, the default setting is active again. So it is, as if you had no regen paddles. If you pull on the pedals, the recuperation becomes stronger or weaker. If you do not want to use your foot to dose directly to the gas pedal, you can do so with the regen paddles.

    Basically it's a 50/50 thing whether you like it or not. Personally, I'm not a big fan of it, but there are certainly people who like to play with it. Just try it yourself.

    If you've got the smart ED3 Brabus, you've also got the "sport"-mode. With this mode activated you'll get the full regen just by lifting the food off the pedal. They also shortend the pedal travel, in the "sport"-mode you'll already reach foll power bevore hitting the kick down point.
