Dave, stop, you’re just feeding excuses.
This is in the Tesla’s owner manual, Tesla’s range estimate take account of terrain.The Tesla knows where the hills are at before it ever drives on them.
That regen braking regenerates the battery, is a known feature of EVs, and Tesla in particular. If you had ever talked to a Tesla owner you would know about this.
There’d equally be no reason for Teslas to have a regen braking limiter, to protect a nigh 100% charged battery, if it did not increase battery charge.
Features on the Tesla wouldn’t make any sense, if regen braking didn’t do exactly as the name implies.
Display information like this, where it shows negative consumption,

This information would make no sense. But it does make sense; it’s regen braking, adding to the battery charge.
You and RET completely missed this, because you’ve had no real interest or interaction with EVs. You’re in the dark.
Here’s a dump truck, that never has to be charged thanks to regenerative braking:
This is real, you just didn’t know.
