Regen works on my (PH)EV. Evidently, when he replaced his DC motor and controller with AC, he selected less efficient components.

Also, he was talking about being constantly in regen or assist. If he doesn't have a neutral position in his transmission, then he needs a "zero amps glide" setting on his throttle. DWB and long coasts work better than regen.
