Remember that any electricity used has to be made up by an increased load on the engine, which is often less efficient that just using that gasoline to power the wheels. ∞ MPG at < 30 MPH in EV mode means reduced economy at higher speeds when the engine has to work harder to recharge the battery.
regen only works from braking or coasting or if you let the engine idle (according to the infotainment screen\)
