Volkswagen ID.4 Regenerative Braking Vs. Coasting

The Volkswagen ID.4 is getting a lot of attention, and for good reason: the model is the brand’s first all-electric SUV and first electric world car.

One element falling into the former category is regenerative braking. Regenerative braking, which is utilized in many current EVs, causes a vehicle’s brakes to apply gradually and automatically the moment one takes their foot off the accelerator. The electricity generated by the braking friction is then used to recharge the battery.  

The downside, for some, is that regenerative braking takes away a vehicle’s ability to coast. Does the Volkswagen ID.4 use regenerative braking?
