I don't know if it's any more efficient, but, I drive in L mode all the time, PERIOD :nerd:New Bolt owner here.
I find myself driving in L Mode everywhere I go. Is it more efficient to drive L on the freeway or on D and cruise when you let off the pedal?
No lock on the glove box.
No overheard storage for my sunglasses.
Driving in L should have no impact on freeway driving unless you actually hit the brakes hard enough to use the friction pads.Is it more efficient to drive L on the freeway or on D and cruise when you let off the pedal?
I used a night driving session to notice how the brake light worked also. Like you, I put my foot on the pedal when completely stopped to activate the brake lights. A little paranoid to sit there without the brake lights on. Could get rear ended.Watching the rear at night while coming to a complete stop in "L" mode showed me that the brake lights come on and remain on until you're almost completely stopped - so there's no worries there.
