Last week it was pretty cold here in Orlando, and the dash indicated that regen had been limited to half. Why is this? The battery can still output the full 200 kW, and the normal 40 kW of regen seems like it significantly below what the battery should be able to handle ( superchargers can pump in 160 kW ), so why is it lowered even more when cold?
Also isn't it supposed to heat the battery up to fix this? It was still limited after my 30 minute drive to work.
