My problem is that AZ is big, and is a literal as well as figurative desert for EV charging. If you're stuck, you're gonna die. And, the number of chargers around outside of Phoenix is laughable. I can't make it to Vegas from Phoenix (yet) without stopping overnight both ways in Kingman.

I completely understand, WattAJag. With time and experience with the car it's easier to relax while on a long trip. Throw in passengers, especially children, a very hostile environment, lack of infrastructure plus a car that doesn't provide accurate energy consumption information and it's easy to worry.

Continuing my story ... before my first trip out of town last Saturday, I did some test driving, and I agree with those who compute Highway Range as 1.9 to 2.1 miles PER Battery % (2.4 for city).

I went to a National Drive Electric Week car show in Prescott from Scottsdale - 105 miles (and up 3000 feet). I estimated that if I had 40% or more left when I got there, I should be fine to make it back downhill to a 150KW EA charger in Anthem (north of Phoenix) that was 65 miles back (40 miles from my house). Using the conservative 1.9 miles per % (since I was coming back down, I ignored the climb), I estimated (170/1.9 =) 89% used, 11% remaining when I got there. I got there with 15%. Charged for around 25 minutes (at 83KW according to the charger) and got to around 65% and went on home. The EA chargers that are starting to crop up at AZ Walmarts are great - once they get them up and working.

I would refer you to a related post of mine, where I set up a simple Google Sheets spreadsheet to compute range based on your actual driving conditions as you go. This gave me the correct estimate of 15% remaining before I was 1/3 of the way there. You can set this up for yourself on your phone. Directions are here:

I've replied in a PM, but for public consumption:

There is a National Drive Electric Week show this Saturday (9/21) from 4-8 PM at the Pavilion's McDonald's at Talking Stick (formerly Indian Bend) and the 101 in Scottsdale. There will be examples of virtually any EV available - including my I-Pace this weekend.

Dang it - and I have out-of-town guests this weekend. Maybe we need to schedule an I-Pace happy hour... I did spy another IPace in Chandler this weekend and stopped to snap a quick pic!

Getting used to range impacts is a game. Here are two shots there and back with a climb of 1700 odd meters to the ski lift base station car park.Click image for larger version

ID:	2569 - hope the attachments work. Summary up 35kW/100km down 16.5kW/100km - that will put a spanner in range predictions....
