Your question is not asked correctly.
Max charge power is 50 KW (unless you have 30 kwh or 62 kwh pack) but max regen is about 38 KW in B mode, about 58 KW on E-Pedal.
Motor power max is 80 KW or more.
As far as using brakes more... yeah, that isn't even an option in my book. On extreme mountain descents, maybe but in normal day to day? NEVER
