You need to charge 4 times on the road. Starting with 100% will knock it down to 3, and shorten the traveling time some, and you pay less. What it is 30kwh at $0.19 or $0.31. $3.60 difference. Remember I save $12 by driving slower?You're still not addressing why you need to leave with just over half a battery. Just so a majority of the charging is done at a higher cost? Anyway, yes, that would increase cost and time.
As for the Hyundai Accent, you're talking about a significantly smaller car. The trunk area is over 3 cu/ft smaller than the Bolt EV's, and the Accent has far, far less capacity with the seats down.
Time saving is one charge session of 30 min. The whole trip is still over 9 hours, versus less than 8 in a gas car.
Accent is perfectly fine for me. I happily drove a spark EV for 3 years. An accent is an upgrade.
