Charge benefit while driving?

I am unclear on whether it is advantageous or not to push the charge button when on my daily 175 mile trip.

Have not been able to find specifics about how much regen there actually is in the charge mode. Would really help if Mitsubishi actually placed a number indication of power coming in and out of the battery.

I think its a good idea to start mapping out the charging station around you when you can charge up.
Most people I know who have done that stop considering what regen can do and ultimately see it as a small benefit with the more they drive.

Regenerative braking will be a better way to recuperate some power than the charge mode. Making proper use of the Eco mode can help to decrease the amount of of draw on the battery pack though.

In that regard, i'm a big fan of Audi which has implemented a regenerative shock absorber.

However I can understand why automakers haven't invested more into more regen systems with the decreasing range anxiety
