We still remember encountering you and your wife charging at Fontana Nissan on your way home from that wedding (we were adding some charge to get home, up the mountain). At least you didn't have to call a tow truck!hill wrote:You try to take that 1st "unusual" 45 mile trip to a wedding ... it's cold and you have to climb 3,900 feet. The unexpected WILL happen. Baam, you catch the last 5 minutes of the reception if you're lucky. The right/realistic range gauge could prevent that 1st time bad EV experience/disappointment.
The solution of course would be a range calculation based on the route to a destination supplied by the driver, ideally with indications of predicted, remaining range along the route.
