Oh boy... you must be deaf.

In these conditions (downhill, green batteries, no acceleration) the
REV of the ICE is doubled in respect to D.
I know: I have a Prius, a rev Counter and the Alpes. :D

if under 40 mph:
Batteries < 80% (and not too hot, otherwise threshold lowers)
In D RPM = 0 charge = +10 Amp.
In B RPM = 1300 charge +20 Amp.

Batteries topped up:
In D RPM = ~2000 rpm
In B RPM = ~4500 rpm

One curiosity: a slight pressure on the accelerator while in B = RPM
does down (and the car goes downhill faster)

In article


Not here.

There's no feed to the batteries from the wheels if the car is in B mode.

The source of information is my car on my local road 9Italian Alps)
equipped with a CAN scanner. A famous one.

If you want more info, just ask.
