Being retired, my general motoring needs are probably atypical; weekday journeys are rarely more than 50 miles, requiring a 100 mile range to get me wherever I am going and home again. Weekends frequently involve a couple of hundred miles each way, still within reason by EV, but how long would the 1,100 mile one day trip to visit the Hungarian side of the family take in an e-Golf?
Indeed an interesting read and hardly the journey of the century!
Can you imagine going to Hungary or in my case Switzerland. Probably take me double/triple the normal time just to get to Folkestone. Plus, what's all this about 45 minute stops to top-up that only get a 70% charge? Thought the blurb was all about getting an 80% charge in minutes; well I suppose 45 minutes is still minutes but not what I had in mind. The way they push electric cars is that the charge is little more than a regular fuel stop. Telling lies again ... or just stretching credibility? Well it was a VW!
