Well, that begs the question re the Ecotricity 45 minute time limit on charging. I have suggested to Nissan that they negotiate with Ecotricity for an increase to an hour, even if that meant, say, a connection fee of £4. What's the (main) point of having a 40kWh battery if you can't charge it to over 90%! Incidentally, in my 30kWh Leaf, my rule of thumb for legs is 90 miles, but will risk more if the end of the leg is home. Recently travelled 95 miles home and had 31 miles left. Mind, I was bl...y cold. That will be the minor advantage of the imminent 40kWh Leaf, that one could, say, plan 100 mile legs, and use the heater!
L that begs tgThat makes great sense. Thank you for taking the time to reply. As an EV Newbie I understand that journey planning will become paramount.
I think that with the new Ecotricity 45 minute charging period, I can reasonably stop at 100 miles, charge for 45 mins at 43Kw, drive another 100 miles and charge again for 45 mins at 43Kw. Not sure how much it is for each charge but I'll post an update.
