Now the battery lasting 1M - different story. I have to see that to believe that.

Probably a significant exaggeration, but it doesn't need to last a million miles, it just needs to last longer than a diesel drivetrain. Engines, transmissions and clutches don't do a million miles, and even a refurbished tranny for a Class8 is not a cheap thing.
