I will post this for the thread because you will never get it no matter how many times you watch it.
Normal driving operation means that you are not using gimmicks (like dragging your car with a pickup or pushing it off a cliff), your video shows a complete moron (I would challenge anyone to watch the video and draw a different conclusion) who is pushing his car off a cliff.
The Tesla regen system is not connected to the cars brakes, it is called “regenerative braking” because it brakes the car when the generator engages (which occurs whenever the throttle is fully off); the inertia of the car drives the generator and that creates a braking effect (similar to engine brakes on diesels).
The moron in the video is driving on a downhill road with a speed limit of 35 and 45 in various places with some curves posted slower; but he is NOT driving the road.
He has fully lifted off the accelerator at the top and NEVER applied it again, his TOP speed was 25 mph and he dropped as low as 16 mph with complete disregard for the traffic on the road.
By doing this the car NEVER exited regen mode but required him to drop to 16 in a 45 (flipping the bird to everyone else basically) but it also means he never applied the throttle so he didn’t use any power.
Much like dragging a car with a pickup this is a gimmick that nobody who is actually DRIVING their car appropriately and safely for the conditions they are in would do, only a jackass (Tesla fan boy) would do this on a public road in heavy traffic; all he proved was that normal operation would not gain more power than is consumed and that he is a typical entitlement liberal who thinks the whole world exists to serve him.
Great video AS, precisely the type of “informed source” that would appeal to you as you “look for data” :rofl
