Change in regenerative braking strength

My wife drives a new long range model X and I have an older model S and we’ve both noticed a significant reduction in strength in the regenerative braking on the standard setting. It’s unclear if this change is associated with any recent updates, but we live in a mountain region and the change is not subtle. Anyone else notice a similar phenomenon?

I live on a small mountain and I have noticed a reduction in regen. Too bad we don't have any way to test this. My car still slows to a complete stop if I let it (if there are no cars coming down behind me) so it's basically just gentler. I've had to start slowing (reduce pressure on pedal) a tiny bit sooner, but it's not hard to stop where I planned. Just takes a little practice.

Hope I didn't brake anything, Bruce. 😁

I think the charging level explains it. Both our vehicles were charged to the max anticipating a long road trip. Thanks for the insight. Apologies for the typo.
