Since this weekend gone, 25th November 2012, it appears not all my trips have to end in disaster and result in licking my tail so to speak. (see Scotney Castle Trip)
We have met representative from Ecotricity, ChargePoint consultant Harold at junction J23 on Welcome Break Service of M25 (A1/M25 North London), – where we were frankly impressed with the “new kit” of these rapid charging units, – which can deliver upto 100%* of the charge to the electric car.
Furthermore, “plan B”, setup are indeed there as well, dual-socket Fast Charging 32A socket options nearby as well. This will prevent further embarrassment (exactly what happened on our historic Scotney Castle Trip), never-mind my range-anxiety beating mission with electric car.
Time To Plan the New Electric Car trip to far-away, and kick this “range-anxiety”##Q##s rear side!
Preparation (mild, dont be afraid) is the key.
Route planning (and not getting lost) is important.
Luckily, London to Oxford trip, takes us through the “happy route”.
Not only, London Location is Golders Green, but its located near A406, a main-route dual carriage-way connecting to A40/M40, – direct route to Oxford.
Distance + Charging
This is where i think, its a likely win/win (dont quote me)
Total Distance – My Golders Green, London location to Oxford – 58.3 miles (1h 30m)
