If we have to run to Minneapolis (son at school) and back a bunch (600 mile round trip), this a 15 min refuel stop with the Prime, 75 minutes with the Model 3 and 2 hours and 30 minutes with a Bolt, the Leaf isn't an option,
I'm looking at a near opposite path: Minneapolis to Marquette MI, which could go via Green Bay. Also not do-able with my Leaf.
Actually, aBetterRoutePlanner gives an eastbound path for a 2020 Bolt with 5% degradation, driving slow:
- 51 minute charge EA Eau Claire @50kw 53->100% (at Sams Club)
+ drive 60 mph on the freeway to Merrill, then 50mph on hwy 64 to Crivitz
- 60 minutes charge in Crivitz Chev @25kw 15%->53% (free; McDonalds is 10 minute walk)
- arrive in Marquette with 9%
... total summer charging 111 minutes.
The other direction is 60 minutes in Crivitz (free), then 60 in Eau Claire (120 minutes total charging).
I could do the whole thing free by using Menominee Chev, and Crivitz Chev, with a short L2 stop at Wausau Jefferson Ramp. It would be easy if a Chev dealer in Wausau or Merrill got the 25kw DCFC.
So you may be able to get from Green Bay to Minneapolis with less than 150 minutes of charging in a 2020 bolt.
