I finished installing an LCD ammeter on the GF's 700Li today and took it out for a test spin.
Imagine my surprise when I was down-hilling it, applied the brakes, felt the slow-down and watched the reverse current flow on the ammeter! hmm.
These weren't marketed with regen braking, that I recall. I haven't read of regen on these here on V either.
I'd ridden this a few times, but never down a hill, so I just thought the brakes were "grabby" when engaged lightly, and without the ammeter, I had no clue.
Do we know if this is going back into the battery? or is it just dissipated in the controller(seems like a waste if so)?
Just rechecked x-treme site and no mention, which is why I wondered if perhaps it was not fully-implemented and the regen energy just goes to heat der controller instead of into pack; I mean, why wouldn't they market the feature if it were there?
Thus my confusion.
