But that does not mean that if you brake suddenly to charge the batteries faster. On the contrary, hybrid works by braking force if small, in fact, apply the brakes instead of electric brakes (which then acts as a generator), which inhibits their resistance turning vehicle. This means that the electric braking force is limited and that if you brake suddenly dropped the brakes and losing all the benefits of hybrid drives.
