New HuntVe 2016 Switchback Switchback: Need advice on battery

Customer Question

Need advice on battery usage vs gas for Huntve UTV. I live in the Blue Ridge Mtns of Va and will use it in mtn terrain; 1/2 mile stretches of 35 degree angles. How do I make the transition from electric battery use, vs a tank of gas. This is 48 volts of battery. I am not concerned with the torgue for short distances. I need help with the physics and longevity and battery replacement. should I be planning to replace the vehicle every 2-3 years for 80% of total value rather than replace batteries every 5 years. I doubt I would put more than 40 hours per year on it.
