- Aug 2, 2011Interesting. I wouldn't necessarily say that there is a set position, but I
can say that it seems every single time that I'm climbing a hill (or I
suppose otherwise asking for a good amount of power) there is a point
somewhere around maybe 80% pedal travel where the batteries tend to get
charge(to a point). But if I floor it, I've NEVER seen it charge. I've
gone from Full green down to a single purple. I don't think I've ever fully
drained the graph so perhaps once it gets that low it will alternate short
amount of charge/discharge.
But I can't see it actually refilling the battery with the accelerator
floored and if it did, I can't imagine you ever making it to actual triple
digit speeds with... 50hp? (just trying to guesstimate gas power only but
with a good portion of that power going to recharge the battery)
