50 miles on 77 shouldn't be an issue. You will need to have an L2 charger as I have found. I run a deficit while trickle charging & working twelves. My plant at Lake Wylie is putting in a charger and I " should " have a GE Watt station installed this week at the house. With this set up, I am good to go for any work driving 55 daily in heavy lil town traffic from IndianLand to LakeWylie and maybe a 5 mile 60 mph run or if work requires, 77/ 485 from IndianLand to Huntersville. ( Lake Norman plant already has a number of chargers available).
I always need heat & lights in morning and air in afternoon.I always drive with traffic or a lil faster
As an experiment, I found I could recoup needed charge by leaving an hour early a few times a week and jacking in at a number of available charging stations between work an house. Again this was
Just to see possibilities .
The Leaf really works out very well for me as a get a round town / work car in the Charlotte NC / RockHill SC area.
