+1. Terrible choice of terminology but we are stuck with it. There is some very loose form of regeneration if you consider that that battery is only charged on no throttle coast down, the cars kinetic energy is regenerated into battery charge. Of course all std. electrical systems since 1950 already do this so again to BMW marketing.
