Which is why in an earlier post I wrote, "it's true that regenerative braking doesn't put much energy back into the battery pack during a lot of driving, but it becomes more significant in heavy city driving."Depending on how hard you brake and how much city driving you do, regenerative braking can increase your range significantly. We are talking 50% more range or even more than without regen.
Most of my driving is on uncongested highways, so I get little range enhancement from regenerative braking, as I simply don't brake or slow down much relative to miles driven. I understand that if I did more city driving I would see considerably more energy recovery.
