Certainly looks like it. I know most EV's have switchable levels of Regeneration, so I hope the Honda e does too. And a hardware switch. Not something that requires accessing the software via a screen. I would want to be able to easily switch between different levels on the fly. At the moment I can select Neutral, which would be the equivalent of no regen, for long gentle descents. And various levels of regen for steeper slopes. One Pedal operation would be great for  busy town driving. I would love one, but doubt I may be spared long enough to get one.

What happens when you are in one pedal mode and you need to make an emergency stop.
The use of a brake pedal then, cannot be described as one pedal operation?

I see it is done by a paddle. That is a good thing.

Yes it is. The brake pedal.

Very interesting video and a quite impressive specification.
Pity there was no mention of the Single Pedal Operation?

The German guy talks about the electric motor being under the "hood", but it is not. It is in the rear, as the "Fully Charged" video, and this older video makes clear.

Yeah I thought that it also explains why the boot is so small, too small for my liking.

The car will be perfect for my needs, but I realise it will not suit everyone. For 99.9% of my motoring, a two seater is all I require. As for boot space, if it holds my shopping then it is big enough for me. The boot of my Jazz is full of empty supermarket trolley bags, and most of the time I just lay the shopping on the back seat, on my way home from the store! I would have an MX5 if I could get in and out of it!!!
Robert Llewellyn certainly likes the One Pedal option. And the performance. What I cannot understand, is why the entire roof is glass when you can only see out of one small section? Perhaps it is simpler, and allows a smooth, aerodynamic roof.
