Brake and regeneration

Hybrid cars recover energy from brakings, but you should brake using as low friction brake pads as possible.
Using the Brake Map chart of Torque Log Analyzer, you can see where you have used friction brake on your trip: try to minimize that.

The analysis sheet gives a summary of your braking performance, counting how many times you have used the brakes and how many of them were "bad", with no energy recovered.
Good braking generate energy, and the analysis sheet reports how many battery percentage point were gained thanks to energy recovery.

The SOC Regeneration chart shows how much battery is gained by braking.
