But only at 1.5 kW for L1, or maybe 6 kW at L2...

But even the motor in the Prius is a 50 kW motor and so during maximum
REGEN it can push 50 kW into the battery.  For a 5 second stop  that is
the same as 4 kW for a minute.  Still not much.  But for a half hour down
hill from the ski slopes, that could be 25 kWh or a  lot of juice.
