Pulling 80k lbs uphill takes a lot of energy.
I read it as on the average trip the truck recovers 20 - 30% of the battery capacity using regen - not that the peak regen is 20-30% of battery capacity or motor rating.

These make a lot of sense in the case your buildings are stretched over a mile
Yes, there are a lot of those trucks. I'd say we have 20 - 30 trucks in our industrial park that never leave the park. They just switch trailers all day every day.
