It’s not a particularly common thing to do though. When we drove back from Reading the other other day, we had to go from 7% to 30% to get home. I had to stop it charging before I’d ordered a KFC in the services to avoid paying more than I needed.
I stopped at the M1 Rugby one a while back. Car was on about 15%, went in to get coffee, which was slow service, by the time I got back with my coffee the car was over 80%. Must have been at the max (about 180kW) for most of the time.
I had to drive off rather sit and enjoy the coffee with a YouTube vid
I was using a Prius plug-in which has about 30-36 miles of EV range winter-summer, plus about 500 miles on a full tank. It gives around 60 to 65 mpg as a hybrid only but has averaged 150 mpg over its 5 years due to mainly being an EV for all or the bulk of local journeys.
It doesn’t have sportscar grip or performance but rides well and has a good chassis balance with wishbone suspension all round iirc.
Buying an EV was not for expense reasons for me.
It is a toy that gets FAR less use than my stereo. Daft really.
