How big of a hill is needed to recharge a Tesla? How about A Nissan Leaf? Ultimately, it's a matter of potential energy, and how much energy the Tesla could recover, based on its regen efficiency. There are gearboxes, motors, inverters, controllers, and finally the battery which the energy must transfer through, which all have efficiency losses. This is to mention nothing of rolling resistance or air resistance. Energy = force times distance, so this will allow us to determine what height is needed to recharge a Tesla. And finally, it's imperative to put things in terms of Mt. Everest units. It's a tall hill.
