Putting on the brakes: Regenerative braking in accident reconstruction

There can be a split-second delay before the brake lights on an electric car illuminate, indicating the driver is slowing down or stopping.



Regenerative braking is an integral part of an electric vehicle (EV) powertrain. Regenerative braking has become more common with the increased production of EVs. For many years, accident reconstructionists have discussed various deceleration factors including, but not limited to, full braking capacity and rolling resistance. As the number of electric vehicles on North American roads increases, it is important to consider how regenerative braking works. – Click link for more-
