They’re unregulated because the majority of lawmakers are still thinking that kids spend too much time on that newfangled Atari.

The average age of senators is in the sixties. 30 years ago, when they were first joining politics, video games were still very much for children and slim few have ever worked past that.

Regenerative braking in a Prius is different from what you find on a battery electric car. They run the motor in reverse as a generator and the electric motors in a battery vehicle are much larger and more efficient than what’s available even in a PHEV.

BEVs can brake without touching the brake pedal. A Prius doesn’t have a large enough electric motor to do that.
