2020 Sonic Grey Pearl CRV EX-L Hybrid
I've tried this out at night when I was using full regen on an off ramp and they didn't seem to come on. I tapped my brakes to see a difference and yup, the lights only came on during actual braking. Seems dangerous to me.But I know for a fact that the paddles do not activate the brake lights in the Accord. It would be interesting to verify that they do in the CR-V. That would be a difference between them and downshifting.
