That's not my experience at all. I always switch to B5 as soon as I start the car.
When I have a full battery it sometimes catches me out as it does not decelerate as quick as I am used to.
As soon as I have gone a couple of miles then the regen affects the way the car response to taking my foot off the accelerator again.
Maybe it is model specific? Mine is an older 15 plate (MY14?).
Same here for my 2016. There is nowhere for it to go. It cannot, and does not, slow you down on a FULL charge. Anything less than totally full has a small retarding effect as indicated by the needle dropping into the blue, but on a full charge the needle stays flat, just as it does in B0.
Mitsubishi could have implemented a power sink resistor (but it would have to be massive) or application of brakes, to keep the retardation in each B mode consistent across battery charge levels and temperatures, but they did not. At least in my experience of my 2016 they did not.
If you're going fast enough, the resistance from air and tyres may be enough to believe that the retardation is coming from elsewhere, but at urban seeds it's very obvious that there is none.
