But if you're driving a 20-ton truck, even routine braking will probably be "hard" braking.

Presumably if the motors are beefy enough to accelerate that 20-ton truck, they're beefy-enough to regeneratively brake it as well, right? I mean, still not as quickly as friction brakes can, but at a comparable level to passenger car regenerative braking.
