Regen question

959 Views 8 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  hellsop
Probably been answered but I can't find it: When the car is in hold mode where does the regen energy go and why doesn't it show up on the GOM? Also, same question when the battery is at zero miles?

You are running off the battery even in hold mode. The computer tells the gas engine system to maintain the battery level at the same level it was in when hold was engaged. So the regen is applied to that total, it gives the gas engine a bit of a break, but it's designed not to "top off" the battery, despite how convenient that sounds like it would be.
