Regarding trying to make the controller act like an ICE car.

Most cars for Joe/Joy average driver are equipped with an automatic transmission and therefore have a torque converter that soaks up drive train vibrations/"irregularities".

Auto enthusiasts that have a stick want to feel everything that is going on with the car.

My vote is to let me know what is going on with the vehicle.

With an ICE car I am not going to try to remain stationary on a hill or the clutch will burn.
With the electric car on a hill, wouldn't it also be better to take the foot off the throttle and onto the brake?
