I have a 18 I3s BEV. Covid has thrown a wrench into travel plans, as I'm sure it has for many of you. I am planning to visit some family in the NJ/NY area, which is 500ish miles from me.
The question is simple really. Should I do it? I can get about 100 mi range on the highway at around 70mph. This means at a minimum stopping 5 times to fast charge. This turns a 9ish hour drive to 12hrs. Given the distance I was going to stop at least 2-3 times anyway, but for much shorter time.
What has everyone's experience been with long journeys on a similar BEV? Did you regret it? Did you experience any issues with so many fast charges?
We do have an ICE we can use for the trip, but the risk taker in me wants to try it out.
