    Quick question, in the Prius v, do the brake lights illuminate when driver lifts off-throttle and the car goes into regeneration mode? Or do they only illuminate when the brakes are activated via pressing the brake pedal? At speed, I can't get out there to look... Thanks.

    Thanks. Thought so. Was following an EV whose brake lights seemed to flicker on every lift.
