Can electric vehicles perform well in hilly or mountainous regions?

Yes, EVs can perform well in hilly regions. One factor where EVs outperform ICE vehicles is instant torque. This means EVs can provide strong and immediate power to climb steep inclines which can aid uphill acceleration. When travelling downhill, regenerative braking may aid in EV battery recovery and extend the driving range and improve overall energy efficiency.

EV drivers should consider the range of their vehicles, the availability of local charging infrastructure and the terrain of the overall journey to have the best driving experience when driving in hilly areas.
