The paddles are for regen, It goes 2 or 3 levels, it's a pretty silly way of doing it and misleading.

US EV sales are a compliance play so dealers are not incentivized to sell them.
Porsche is the only legacy OEM that tries with EVs, IMO
I will miss them, but from what I have read, the ones on the e-tron GT aren't as effective as the ones on my e-tron SUV. I only drove the GT at a very high level of charge, so I couldn't make a comparison.

E-Tron GT regen same as the Taycan. It's not 1 peddle driving

That's what I figured. The sales guy said it was for shifting gears and I told him that like the Taycan, the e-tron has only two gears. He argued with me on that point, despite the fact that I told him I owned a Taycan.

I saw a gray one in my tint shop. The interior with the seats looked really cool. I didn't like the exterior tho. It just has too much imo. Anyway the point was the owner paid $35k mark up from MSRP...
