regen question

Thu Sep 16, 2021 12:29 pm

in my 2016 eGolf, how does regen work? is it just the drive motor spinning in reverse or do we have some special disc brakes that contribute to regen?

Regen, known as regenerative braking, occurs when the drive motor operates in reverse and acts as a generator to convert kinetic energy (motion) into electrical energy.
