"Ride along with me on a 300 mile drive through the Blue Ridge mountains of Western North Carolina in my 2012 Nissan LEAF SL."

EV owners tend to love (regen!!!) and loathe (loss of range on inclines) mountain driving.

This video, at nearly one hour long, takes us on a detailed trip of a Nissan LEAF mountain driving adventure in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  At the end of the video, you'll find all sorts of data (similar to the screen cap featured below).

As the YouTube uploader says:

"I do not work for Nissan, I just love my LEAF and want to educate others that are interested in EV ownership about live with an EV."

Do you often take your EV into the mountains?  If so, how's the experience been?  Loving the regen?  Or does the lack of uphill range make it a struggle?
