Sounds like hes using ACC mostly.
Using ACC “Stop and go” in traffic blends the friction braking with regen and almost never exceeds 25% (on the gauge) of regen autonomously in D mode. L mode however with ACC achieves %50 regen for the same conditions but still blends friction braking.. the extra 25% can lead to a noticeable improvement.
I prefer Classic driving now. Braking from above 40mph can achieve 100% with no friction braking as long as the pedal pressure isn't too aggressive.
Personally I avoid regen, drive in D mode and lift the throttle to 0kw to coast unless I need to stop. Then finding the highest continuous regen rate for the longest available time during the stop. This is tons better than peak regen from my experience.
But I’ve only managed an extra 16mi range from my beast for 46mi (total single charge) so far.
