Studying some specs online... the floor mounted gear selector has a setting next to D for drive that is marked "B" for braking as in regenerative braking. It seems that they have put an added option of extra regen braking into the driver's hands. In "eco" mode, I could also use "B" for long coasts to lights and traffic lines and probably quite easily and painlessly extend my range and efficiency.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
