Hello,


I would like to ask you if you have similar feelings about winter braking.

When I press the brake harder, until the brakes are warmed up, braking is not smooth, just the feeling that all systems are cold and do not stop the car smoothly (even slight jerking).


Thank you for your opinions

My experience is that the jerking is the transmission shifting to keep the electric motor turning fast enough to effectively apply regenerative braking. It is most obvious when really cold (20 degrees F) and the car has been sitting for more than a full day. I also feel the jerking on upshifts for the first few minutes that the car is driving in EV mode when really cold and has been sitting for a day or more.
