Top up on vacation 3 How much I used, how much I spent

Let’s start with the 95% loading at 14.40, arriving in the province of Caserta with 16, routes 110 km. We leave the following afternoon on Monday, July 25 at 3:30 p.m. with the 70%, with one stop Anagni Fiuggi (FR). We arrived at 5:15 p.m., traveled 160 km, with autonomy at 21%2 quick stops EnelX from 60kWh We start again after about 45 minutes with 83% charge and rights to home: another 210km and you reach 20, with battery left over at 25%. THE costs? €55.80 from the motorway. Car load approx. €65.00, divided as follows:

  • Recharge Telepass for free (8 that is, 2 top-ups of €4.00 already made previously; 2 free as a new client app
  • 30kWh gift from Enel X Had, Enel X Flat Small subscription for €0.25.00 / 70 kWh, and another 30kWh paid at full rate.

IN CONCLUSION – “Moral, for those who say that long trips cannot be made with the electric one. sure you have to schedule them right especially when i 400km. You have to take into account the waiting times to recharge a little, but if used well, like having a coffee and going to the bathroom, it is almost nothing. Taking into account that in the summer period more or less the same time is lost queuing at dealers of highway service areas, we are almost on par. After a year and 32,000km paths, they are more than satisfied with the choice and I would hardly go back.
