@awesterner, Unless things have changed very recently you’re correct. Typically there is a full hydraulic braking system that is controlled by the electric braking system. There are force and position sensors at the brake pedal and electric pumps in the hydraulic system to create the braking pressure to augment the regenerative braking. The system can still operate as full hydraulic if there is a power loss,.  I’ve driven a few hybrids with this system and they all feel very disconnected compared to a traditional system. Electric steering feels awful in the same way.
