When my GTE or electric car performs auto regenerative braking (Battery Charge Mode in GTEs or “B” Mode in electrics), do the brake lights show?

In Battery Charge Mode, GTE cars will not show braking lights when they are performing auto regenerative braking, as the deceleration is only slightly more than coasting.

In “B” Mode, e- cars will show brake lights when they are performing auto regenerative braking because the braking effect is stronger.
