First off, I am a big fan of regenerative braking, absolutely loving "one pedal driving." I was wondering however if during periods of non-braking, does it actually create more electricity requirement? If I let go of the accelerator in an ICE vehicle, there only rolling resistance of the tire to the ground which allows one to coast and thus increase fuel economy. In the same setting, if the go pedal is not minimally pressed, there is a large resistance from the motors which are in regenerative braking mode (which I take to mean that there is a large resistance that requires some use of battery to overcome). In a long distance highway trip with little braking I would think the benefits of regenerative braking would pale in comparison to the loss in ability to coast. Curious if others have a better explanation.
