It is not so much the brake pads as the regeneration of the electric motor slowing you down when stepping on the brake pedal. You don't use the pads until you are almost stopped or you hit the brakes hard.With my previous IS250 I would be constantly having to clean my wheels to remove the brake dust that built up in a matter of days.
On my CT200h it appears that I no longer have this problem. Can someone explain what's different about the CT200h's brake pads?
If the major brake effort is being done via the regen system then does this mean that the life of the brake pads are going to be considerably longer than on a regular vehicle?Mine were 10mm at 5k service. That's probably about right for original thickness. Cssaus, good for you for trying to keep the wheels clean. Most European cars look terrible with blackened front wheels because owners neglect them.
