Experiencing braking when you take your foot off the gas?

Tesla's version of one-pedal driving may be turned on. This mode engages regenerative braking anytime you release the gas pedal. To turn one-pedal driving off:

  1. Tap the menu button shaped like a car in the bottom left
  2. Tap "Pedals & Steering"
  3. Change the "Stoping mode"
    1. Creep: typical 2-pedal driving
    2. Roll: somewhere in between
    3. Hold: one-pedal driving; extended range because of increased regenerative braking
