    You have a S40 (= software limited S60), which means you can not not move the charge slider beyond 80%, you are located on a hill, you charge the vehicle to the maximum (= 40 kWh or 80% of the charge slider) and then you go downhill, will recuperation charge the battery beyond the 80% limitation, or will there be no recuperation available?
