Indeed! Considering the popularity of AWD in some of the larger EV markets, and the fact that AWD can be implemented in an EV with little or no net efficiency loss relative to 2WD, this should be a no-brainer.
Here in California, AWD is seen as a virtual necessity by many who spend time in the mountains, mainly because the authorities tend to require snow chains on 2WD vehicles even when there's only an inch or two of snow on the roads.
Also, EVs continue to be more popular among buyers who are more affluent and/or educated, precisely the demographic that often tends to be more inclined to take trips to the mountains. Here in SoCal, practically any EV with fast charging capability can reasonably reach the mountain resort areas, the high costs of CHAdeMO charging notwithstanding (high costs relative to the current, subsidized, low gasoline/diesel prices).
