Yes: for me to drive the 101 all way home to Valley Village (North Hollywood) from the Margate Center in San Luis Obispo, I do three 30 minute charges.Thanks, just the info I was looking for.
VoltoBolt, are you saying that you start with a full battery and need 1 1/2 hr more charge for the trip? Thanks.
My neighbor has been commuting in a Leaf since they became available in Virginia, in 2011. First in a 24 kWh, now in a 30 kWh. Her commute is 50+ miles everyday, year round, with no charging once she leaves the city limits from work. She has done the lap blanket, no heat thing all that time, in winter. This winter is the worst since 2011. Two weeks ago she had a small side trip that should have been doable, out on a back road. On the return to the main road, she got going on the wrong road, in the freezing cold, in the dark. It only cost her a few more miles. But she ended up running out of juice on our road. Fortunately, the last quarter mile was slightly downhill, and she was able to coast into their driveway in neutral. They used an extension cord, with the portable EVSE, to get enough juice to get it into the garage and hooked to the 240 volt EVSE. A small miscalculation can snowball. Ever see the movie "All is Lost"?Hi EOPS, If I'm understanding your message correctly - I have never gotten that (stranded) run out of power fear. An EV is no different than an ICE car, you have a gauge that tells you your fuel level. Why would anyone intentionally run out of gas/electricity? Even with a 70 mile range you plan and charge when you need electricity. I do understand the range anxiety issue but the worry of getting stranded...?
