Chevy Bolt EV Max Regen At Least 70 kW

While driving my Bolt EV back home, I made an interesting discovery. The max regenerative braking power is at least 70 kW. I could be more--if it is based on battery SOC--, but between 50-70% state of charge, it maxes out at 70 kW.

60kW for 10 seconds was also the max on a Gen 1 Volt, which is a 3.75C rate when paired with the initial model year's 16kWh battery.
I wonder how a Gen 1 Volt could do 60kW regen when MGA (generator motor) is rated at 55kW. In the many years I used my Gen 1 (2013) Volt, I have never seen regen go over 55kW, even when checked via OBDII
