Since the EV Only range is only 1.25 miles, I guess the regen down hills and when braking
helps the ICE quickly recharge the pack, as it's propelling the car..
Otherwise we wouldn't be seeing 59% EV on a 12.8 mile trip..

This display
is very interesting to watch, since you can see the arrows changing direction,
Into and Out of the battery while driving on almost flat roads.
It almost seems like the blended mode has the ICE coming on and running
for just a few seconds, when it's needed..
It's odd to see, but it works great..
My hobby is installing & trying to repair mini-splits
EPA 608 Type 1 Technician Certification ~ 5 lbs or less..
