Q
What is regenerative braking?
View Answer
A
Conventional braking wastes energy because it kills the momentum that the engine has built up. The process of Regenerative Braking takes this energy and stores it elsewhere. Instead of being lost as heat in the brakes, the energy is used to drive an alternator which allows the energy to be recovered and stored in a battery.

Every time you apply the brakes or coast, the electric motor acts as a generator so the engine automatically recovers some of this wasted energy and returns it to the battery.
