I apologize if this is a FAQ, I thought I had seen this topic come up but I have tried several searches with no hits. If you know of an existing thread, please provide a link.
My 2016 has the "Coach" display that provides scoring for braking, cruising, and acceleration. I make regular trips across town on roads that are 50MPH but have stop lights, and I've been experimenting with how I get from light to light (at low traffic times) to improve my results.
What I've found so far is that I can regularly get "green" on the first two, but it's very difficult to impress the acceleration coach. For good braking and cruising scores I engage the brake well in advance of a stop in order to max out the regeneration. I've tried long, gradual acceleration when the light turns green, and I've tried getting up to speed quickly. Neither one makes the acceleration bar move much, but fast accel is significantly worse. That seems a little odd to me because for my previous hybrid (2002 Prius) the advice was to get up to speed quickly and then keep it steady for good MPG.
I've started wondering whether the accel coach takes the posted speed limit into account. The GPS displays provide speed limits on many local roads, although it's not always up to date. One last comment regarding the accel coach: it thinks "staying with the herd" is awful, at least around here. If traffic is busy and following the default tactic of maxing the speed limit from light to light, I'll never get above 25%.
