Ok, so I'm hoping someone can educate me (for my own interest and in case friends or family ask) about how regenerative braking slows down a car. I've tried using google and have watched videos on youtube that try to explain the mechanics. But i still don't get it. Now, I understand that when you lift your foot off the accelerator the car's wheels act as a generator that feed electricity back into the battery. What i still don't understand is how any of that slows down the car. How is it exactly that the car slows down without me having to use the brakes??
