While I had tried this a few days ago at our local Electrify America location, today I had to charge at Gilroy on my way home from a quick (shopping) trip to Monterey. Had I charged the car to 100%, I might have been able to make the whole trip without a charging stop, in sport mode.
I pulled into the charger with 24% remaining, set up the camera (not easy given how short the cables are on these chargers) and plugged the car in…
TL;DR Here are the key parts of the flow:
For some reason, even though I was plugged into a 350 kW charger, with the battery at a relatively low percentage. and warmed up a little at least, the maximum charge power I saw was 148 kW, and that was right at the start. Not sure why as I have seen 269 kW in the past on these chargers. It was enough for my needs today though.
For completeness, here’s the trip stats for the shopping trip today:
Average consumption was not as good as previous trips, but then I did this whole drive in sport mode.
