Did you do it nonstop? I wonder how many DC fast charge stations you passed during that 300 miles.

Maybe, but maybe not. It depends. For an example AFAIK, Tesla Superchargers are always a very short walking distance to restaurants.No I had several stops and far as I know not one of them. but had I had to stop to recharge that would have added time to the trip.
Yah that can happen. But for us we don’t generally stop to charge, we just charge while we are stopped. No lost time that way.No I had several stops and far as I know not one of them. but had I had to stop to recharge that would have added time to the trip. Way more than the stop I made for gas (Tank was not full far from it in fact, when I set out.. 30+mpg at 65MPH on the freeway
Yah. That happens as well and not everywhere has the same infrastructure in place. Where we travel Superchargers and DCFC are already common and more and more all the time, so easy to coordinate our stops with charging facilities.None of my stops were near charging stations.
In some ways. But I wouldn't be surprised if the oil price goes down instead of up. There will be so little demand and the higher oil prices along with cheaper EVs can cause many ICE vehicle owners to switch to EVs where possible.The guvmint can legislate, mandate and incentivize to a point, but at the end of the day we're all going to pay one way or another.
That is why the batteries have such a long warranty. And by the time the battery warranty expires, new batteries are likely much cheaper.With some EV's a replacement battery may be more than the car is worth after 10 years or so.
Most people who buy EV’s buy them for reasons like superior performance, convenience of charging at home, better tech, superior driving dynamic, super low maintenance. Never a smell of exhaust or oil in the garage. Even having to drive using a brake pedal feels...weird...in an ice vehicle. Fuel is a fraction of the cost. It’s definitely like stepping back in time.If they don't solve any problems, why change?
