So I'm new and only know as much about the volt as I could find online. I haven't been able to plug my volt in as frequently lately after moving into an apartment. It's been about two weeks since it's last been plugged in...I go in last night after turning it off for about 15 minutes (with no battery charge obviously)...I hop back in, start her up...And I have 6 miles on the battery??? After that it drove on battery power for 6 miles. How is this possible???? I'm baffled
Regeneration means recovery of kinetic energy. Since any energy conversion is not 100% efficient, some energy is lost. Basically, you don't get it all back by slowing down after accelerating. (I've heard up to 80% though.)
