841 – The Electric car

I’ve just been through a fair few of my archive looking for a picture of a car, this is the closest I could get.

We went to London today to visit family. We had a very nice day. I was stressed though. I started being stressed about a week ago. We were asked if we could drop some books off at a place which was about 30-40 miles off our normal route home. Of course that kicked off worries about range. Normally we take about 66% of the battery for the journey each way, so we do have to recharge. Which we do at a very good charging station. this time, on the journey we used the heating much more and arrived having used 75%.

We left london with 98% on the battery, 158 miles on the clock. The first stage was 40+ miles. We arrived there, have taken one of two possible routes (the long one, which I really didn’t want to do) and the short one. Guess which one we took. It was about 15 miles longer than the shorter route.

We left the delivery point with 61% on the battery and 50 miles to do. I realised at that point all my stress had been utterly unnecessary. I knew that we could get home. We might have to be a bit frugal with the heater, but that would be no problem.

We arrived home with 34 miles, 23%. The main thing is that the car didn’t let us down. Might not be ideal, but it does work. I was very pleased to get home.
