London to Calais in the Nissan Leaf

It looks so tantalisingly close but the lack of charging infrastructure in Folkestone / Dover / Calais looks like a real problem. There is a rapid charger in Maidstone which will definitely get you to the ferry / Eurotunnel but after that it seems a blank. Has anybody taken this journey before and made it work?

If you use Eurotunnel then Folkestone Nissan, just around the corner from the station has charging but unfortunately it's a 16amp fast charger rather than a rapid charger.

I contacted Eurotunnel and apparently they are discussing putting in rapid chargers at the port, on both sides, but nothing concrete yet.

So unfortunately, unless you are very intrepid and don't mind lots if waiting around it looks very difficult at the moment. Shame.
