    Now that the Leeds Supercharger is online, I think this trip is doable.

    The last leg is tough but on lower speed roads. There are several opportunities for a quick CHAdeMO or 22kW AC top up along it.

    Are you planning on trying it?

    I dont fancy that 270 miles in hilly terrain over winter tbh.

    It will be interesting when it's do able by SC only.

    Re 270 miles on one charge:-

    Uk estimated range in miles

    Agree that it would be tough. Having driven the route, the vast majority of it has an average speed substantially below 60 mph.

    If the range looks tight, there are several opportunities for a ten minute splash of juice.

    I'd be tempted to start at the top with a full charge. Then you wouldn't have to wait for 100% at the Edinburgh supercharger.


    As for trying it: Only if you loan me your car ;)

    Where is the nearest charger? You may not be able to start with a full charge.

    And when you get to Land's end, what's the distance to the nearest charger?
