Agree 100% with the first point (with the exception of Bigheadrich, of course).Only someone who has never driven an EV would find regen annoying. It is, indeed (see No. 15) one of the best features of an EV . . .
The major issue in regen with EV's is that you have to have somewhere to put the regenerated energy.
Capacitors, which can store electricity far faster than batteries, are ideal for capturing regenerative braking energy. While they are not ideal long-term storage devices, they can be used to augment acceleration with stored braking energy in stop-and-go driving, considerably reducing the drain on the batteries. This is suspected to be one of the reasons that Tesla was interested in acquiring Maxwell and is rumored to be experimenting with combining capacitors with batteries in their next-generation power packs.
