Can't say I was ever happy about 50 KW charging or 125 amps, but 200 amp charging was a significant difference. Combined with the range, I was normally leaving with more range than I had planned for. Now, my idea of road tripping is stopping at least every 2 hours and even that is more than I want to go or "can go" frequently so it was all about having stations spaced in the right places. Twice I ended up stopping before my planned stop because of personal need but no matter. Plug in for 10 to 15 mins, do what I need to do then go. Despite having an hour of range left with the unplanned stop, the SOC was still low enough that most of my short session was over 70 KW. Faster is always better but there comes a point where faster doesn't make life more convenient.SageBrush wrote: ↑Mon Jan 18, 2021 8:34 amSo far Nissan has given no hint of continuing LEAF with CCS. They may yet change their minds but for now it looks to me like a decision based on LEAF peak charging speed and related rapidgate and coldgate issues.
I'll make a prediction:
In the same way that you never missed range until you got more,
you do not miss faster charging, until you get more.
A few minutes ago I was planning a 366 mile trip from home to Aspen, CO in our Tesla Model 3. One stop, under 10 minutes of charging. It occurred to me that other than curiosity, there was no reason to plan at all. Just go.
Now, we can all dream up scenarios and a million different "what if?" but no need. It would be wasted on me.
