Was supposed to be an easy out and back trip, ~175 mi total.
On the way back, 30 mi out, ~18% /40 mi remaining, decided to charge a bit just in case.
EVGo. Complete and utter faulty crap.10 min wasted, no gain, and AC at 115F eaten up an equivalent of few miles.
Now it's ~35 mi range vs 30 mi distance. Close, but another option is to deviate ~8 mi to the EA charger, so decided to drive home slowly instead. Going 50 with emergency blinkers at 75 mph highway wasn't exciting, but at least 5 mi margin stays in.
And - surprise ! - inbound road closed due to power line break during recent dust storm. Shortest detour is +4 mi.
The picture has been taken in the garage, so ended up OK this time, except sweating in low battery mode for last few miles, with acceleration limit (blue mark on power meter).
But I think I'm done with such experiments. Anything out of town - I'm bringing the Ridgeline.
I-Pace stays within city limits (exactly where it excels), 20% SOC minimum no matter what.
