I think that's the use case for a Hybrid, or plug in Hybrid.I know it takes more gas to climb a mountain but I still have 1/4-1/2 tank of gas left over for an Okanagan-Vancouver run. Why in the world would I want to stop somewhere for a 20-30 minute charge on a 380 km trip? I agree it is not relevant for commuter EVs, but some EVs will need considerably longer range for at least some uses. I will need to get similar range out of an EV to consider one for touring
EVs do have the benefit of regenerative braking on down slopes but that is assuming one needs to brake at all. Not usually the case on the Coq but I do get that it has plenty of application in many situations. We know you are an unwavering fan of EVs. I assume that is all you have in your driveway.
That's why Ford for example has gone all in on Hybrids, they solve the range anxiety problem today.
