    Noticed that the regen seems weak above 60 or 65 mph, is that legitimate?

    Also, I notice that if I tap on the brakes (at say 30 mph), it seems to initiate an even higher level of regen than felt normally (on high setting). Have you noticed this?

    Have not noticed the brake tap thing...
    Above 60 mph, since the regen power is capped (60kW max I think) , it doesn't feel particularly strong because you have a lot of energy to bleed off. Below 50mph that kW cap is sufficient to produce some higher deceleration.

    I think you've described the sensation that the braking feels less the faster you're going. When you're going 30 and let off the accelerator, the slowdown is more noticeable. When you do it at 65 it's less.
