I have a 2021 (just one week) and no 2018 experience to compare it to.We've only had a couple days with the 2021 model, but we were usually one-pedal drivers in our 2018, and have to constantly use the brake pedal on the 2021. Anyone else experiencing this?
That said, when trying he one-pedal mode I never had to hit the brake.
As one other poster implies: It it my understanding that if by chance what's going on was you'd just pulled out of the driveway with the Bolt at or darn close to 100% charged it won't do any or much regen braking. That's to keep from overcharging the battery.
