That's because topping up the battery isn't a very good way to retain batter health, so when the batter is above a certain percent they limit regen breaking to prevent strenuous charging. Is what I've heard.I'm sure the temperature (cold) issue is a factor. However, even if it is not cold, when you charge the car all the way (trip charge) the regenerative braking is limited until the top end of the charge is used up. It makes sense as regenerative braking is charging the batter, and if the battery is fully charged...
That is what the dashed lines are for. Regen gets stronger as they go away.i just wish the whole concept of it was a little more intuitive. great, regen is limited cause the battery is cold. can you tell me WHEN it will work? on a 40° day it seems like regen doesn't work until i'm below 80%. if i need to warm my battery up before i drive, for how long? why doesn't keeping it plugged in at home keep my battery warm enough for it to matter?
i gotta say, once you're used to regen, and then it's gone, i will sometimes have a panic moment when my car doesn't slow down like it should.
Yeah. It is probably too geeky for most folks. Like how people were freaking out that Bjørn 3 was showing over 50° C for battery temp (best charging speed).and the same for acceleration if it's too cold. i get it, but it's not intuitive. would love some data behind it.
"regen restored in 30 miles"
"battery near optimal temp"
and the like
I'm going to be "that guy"! This is covered in your manual under Regenerative Braking:The past few day’s I’ve been getting this message pop up after start. It eventually goes away. Is this indicative of a hardware problem?
The amount of energy fed back to the Battery using regenerative braking can depend on the current state of the Battery and the charge level setting that you are using. For example, regenerative braking may be limited if the Battery is already fully charged or if the ambient temperature is too cold.
