DC motor to regenerate batteries while slowing down electric vehicle

I would like to use AX860 (60Volt) controller to supply brushed DC motor of my electric vehicle. I found that I can use this device to regenerate batteries while slowing down vehicle. What type of DC motor do I need to do that?

You do not need any special kind of motor; all permanent magnet DC motors will regenerate while slowing down. What makes regeneration possible is the design of the controller, which needs to be designed in such a way to let the current generated by the motor low back to the battery. Our controllers do that.
