A post in multiple parts.
January 1, 2016: I set out to dispel the myth that the Leaf “can’t do long trips.”
The King County South Water Treatment plant to Seattle Premium Outlets NRG EVgo DCFC.
50.9 miles in 58 minutes.
+15 minutes waiting for previous customer to complete her charge.
+4:58 to get NRG to activate the charge.
52.7 mph average over mostly highway miles and a few lights for driving only. Estimate charge will finish by 13:45, if I am on my way by then it would be 29.1 mph average to this point.
Distance covered: 50.9 miles
Driving speed average: 52.7 mph
Total anticipated speed: 29.1 mph
