Deceleration Paddle Selector

Driving

Deceleration Paddle Selector

When you release the accelerator pedal, you can control the rate of deceleration 
without removing your hands from the steering wheel. Using the deceleration 
paddle selector situated on the steering wheel, you can sequentially shift through 
four stages of deceleration.
When descending a hill, you can use the deceleration paddle selector to help 
maintain the rate of deceleration, thereby allowing you to keep a safe distance 
between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead as well as utilize regenerative braking.

The default deceleration stage is 

*1

*2

Each paddle selector operation makes a single 
stage deceleration change.

u

The deceleration stage may not change if 
you keep the paddle selector pulled 
back.

To select the different stages of deceleration:

Pull back the 

(

+

 selector (right side) to decrease the deceleration stage.

Pull back the 

(

-

 selector (left side) to increase the deceleration stage.

*1: When the 

NORMAL

 mode is selected.

*2: When the 

SPORT

 mode is selected.

If you are descending a hill when you select stage 

the vehicle may enter stage

If you pull back right and left paddle selector at the 
same time, the deceleration stage may not change.

CAUTION

Rapidly increasing the deceleration rate by 
quickly shifting the deceleration paddle 
can cause the tyres to skid, resulting in a 
crash that could injure or kill someone.

Always maintain a reasonable rate of 
deceleration.

WARNING

Single Pedal Control is an auxiliary system 
for deceleration.

displays on the gauge, depress the brake 
pedal immediately.
Overreliance on this function when driving 
may result in a crash and serious injury or 
death.
Carefully check your surroundings and 
operate your vehicle safely.

Do not leave the vehicle while the vehicle 
is stopped by the system.

If a vehicle moves unexpectedly, it may 
cause a crash, resulting in serious injury or
