One wonders at the technical innovation required for tanks to move faster in mountains...

The joke I heard was that Italian tanks were designed like sports cars only with 1 gear forward and 5 gears reverse...
Alas the Italians are much (and mostly unjustifiably) maligned for their efforts in WW2 and were always in the 'shadow' of Germany which is given legendary status (mostly unjustifiably as well).

Indeed this is WAD.
Of course no tanks are going directly through the hills
Did you visited Alps or Rocky Mountains?
There is a huge difference between automatic and hand gearbox. This is one.
Second is that the mountain equipment is designed a little bit different way.

Bersaglieri Regiments were attached to all the Italian Tank Divisions and Motorised Divisions, AIUI. They were either motorcycle, cycle or truck borne light infantry in a mobile role ... in fact, AFAICT, they comprised the entire infantry component of the Armoured Divisions.

So it's not so ridiculous ... or not completely.
