The regen braking makes the vehicle more efficient by reclaiming energy that would otherwise be wasted. Anytime the friction brakes are working energy is being wasted. The kinetic energy of the vehicle is being converted to heat and released to the atmosphere. You can force it to friction brake only if you want to. Just put it in neutral before you apply the brakes. Of course you’ll be wasting all of that energy that could have been recharging your battery.I Get all that. If it is because of a space between the regen braking, and the hydraulic brakes taking over, I suspect Homer will see that the charge needle raises back to zero at the point he feels the acceleration.
I wish I knew how Chrysler keeps the friction brakes from engaging to allow the regen to work first. I'm suspecting that this is something we may all feel at a future time. Some may already feel it, just that it started so slowly they never noticed it. My Pac just rolled over the 1K miles today. I have a few ideas, but not knowing how the two systems work together, I may be off base. I wish I had a service manual, but not enough to spend a hundred or two yet. My wallet is still hurting from the slimming the state took, when I went for registration, My gustimate was way off.
