Boulder Electric Vehicle trucks

Boulder Electric Vehicle trucks

Boulder Electric Vehicle, a Colorado-based designer, developer and manufacturer of medium and heavy-duty electric trucks and vans, decided to test out one of its vehicles on the nearby Pikes Peak.

"Boulder Electric Vehicle is the 1st in the world to drive an electric truck to the summit of Pikes Peak, elevation 14,110 ft."

If you ever wondered how much recharging of the battery pack could be achieved coming down from the peak, then here's the answer:

"Not only did the all electric truck easily make it to the peak, but it gained an extra 25% SOC using regenerative braking on the way down. This video documents Boulder EV's journey from the base all the way to the summit."

25% sounds significant, but we wonder just how many kWh is that? 10? 20?
