    Perhaps the first review I've seen where the guy really "gets it".

    This part from the review makes me think the author is under the wrong impression of how the regen works. It makes it seem like she thinks the regen is attached to the brakes. But then this part:
    could be construed as unclear to people that do not know how the regen actually works.

    Anybody else feel like this when reading that part? The actual paragraphs can be found right before the picture of the driver's side headlight and right after that picture as well.

    Tesla must/should have some numbers they could throw at the press to give people a reasonable idea of how much difference regen makes to range for some hypothetical typical city, highway and mixed examples.
