Good bye range anxiety

Today I had a lot of driving around once again. At some point I caught myself occasionally checking the remaining range estimate and doing the math in my head whether it would be enough (with a safe margin) to get me through the whole trip. Even though I knew from the beginning that there should be plenty of range left even with the worst case estimates at the end of my trip. Habits just stick strong.


Same trip with the old car would have cut pretty close battery lasting the whole trip. I'm sure I would have had at least one charging stop just to be on the safe side. The new one goes almost double the distance! Sure, it's nowhere near the range of the traditional combustion engines, but I'd say it's already on the comfortable, usable side. One charge is enough to get you far enough that you surely want to stop for other reasons before the battery needs charging.
