Default Regenerative Breaking

Regenerative braking appears to be a key for charging the battery thus extending the amount of EV mode which in turn boosts MPG.

I have found anytime the downhill allows for a coast I can hit the right hand paddle and get some (1) regenerative. As we come to a stop or slow down for a turn we go to level 2 and level 3.

This works in local traffic. How can it be used on the highway or when on cruise control?

Does SPORT mode add to regenerative power generation?

A discussion of techniques for regenerative breaking and other techniques for recharging the battery would be appreciated.

If your regenerative system is "breaking" I would find out why?
It needs to be fixed so you can use "Regenerative Braking".
