Thanks. That's a real bummer that it switches modes without your input. Is it a single peck on the screen via a shortcut that allows the change or does it take multiple presses? I wonder why Ford does this? Perhaps because sport mode has a significant impact on efficiency? It reminds me of my Pacifica that requires me to turn my vented seats on each time I start it up. Very annoying. Vehicles should memorize your last settings. Constantly undoing forced setting changes makes the driver experience much less appealing .Yes, I prefer Sport mode rather than 1PD for my distance drives.
Sport mode offers a moderate regen which I prefer.
Urban driving, I still prefer normal mode.
Since I also drive other vehicles that do not have any regen - driving a heavy regen (1PD) is counter intuitive for me, it's a muscle memory issue for me.
Sport mode is awesome for the Lightning - just wish it can stay on everytime I switch her on.
