EV Wanted: 60mile round trip, 2 big hills

This is my first post, so don’t pummel me too bad if the answer is covered in some FAQ somewhere ;->.

I am looking for some advice on vehicles, parts, etc. to build a no-frills commuter for a 50-60 mile round trip commute over two hills (600ft to 1500 ft elevation). Speed can be kept under 50MPH.

Can I do this with a car, or do I need a truck to hold the batteries to get this range?
How long will the batteries last?
Do hills effect mileage any worst than on an ICE?

Thank you,
