In the event the battery is full, the regen energy could be diverted to a resistive load. I have no idea if they will do that or not, though. And I really hope the go-slower pedal will feature variable regen, reserving the brakes to be applied *only* when it's impossible to stop fast enough with the regen alone.
Based on some new comments the regen is variable to more off accel but only in economy mode which limits acceleration which is irritating, also it sounds like the regen braking is a bit abrupt which means they don't have a great implementation.
