3587 10
The The Fast Lane Car takes a Bolt on a 122-mile loop that climbed straight up the Rocky Mountains to 9,000-plus feet in elevation and back down. Several positive comments particularly on the Bolt's regenerative braking in mountain driving.

I would really like to see how much range is uses to go from Denver to the top of Loveland pass. Not sure I am up for trying it without having a good idea of how many kWh it will take. I did a trip from Colorado Springs to Fort Collins and back today. Had to stop for a quick top off as it was about 270 miles, but it was an easy trip.

It would require about 10 kWh of additional energy to make it from Denver to the pass (about 1.5 kWh for every 1,000 feet of elevation change). The drive is only 60 miles, otherwise, so you should arrive with plenty of juice.

Is that with or without the classic backup due to an Eisenhower tunnel mishap?...:)

Sounds like they drove Peak to Peak Highway. That's a fun drive in any decent handling car.
