Is Regenerative Braking Real? Does it work as we thought?

Is Jack Rickard correct about there being zero gain -- or even a loss, when regenerative braking is used in an EV?

If you have an EV, can you try to duplicate his results? He is even seeing a 7% *loss* when regenerative braking is used.Like him, I am very surprised at these results -- they make no sense.

EVTV.ME: More Regenerative Braking Results. It gets worse...

He is already working with Illah Nourbakhsh (at Carnegie Mellon), so hopefully we can sort this out?

Regenerative braking in the Aptera - is it merely dogma? - - Unofficial Aptera Car Forum
