We're driving my Porsche Taycan Turbo S back home, with plenty to think about along the way. What do you need to do differently for an EV road trip? How is it on the continent versus the UK? Is this really the future, are we doing the right thing with electric cars?
It's been quite the adventure; 1,500 miles / 2,500 km across from London to Munich, with many, many charging stops along the way to really have a full experience of what it's like and more learning of the electric car world. While the journey itself has been pretty smooth sailing, there are certainly issues and concerns for what happens next.
Fundamentally, doing a trip like this requires a different plan to doing the same with a combustion engine; notably more frequent stops albeit very briefly in order to maximise the charge time. It turned out to be very fluid through most European countries but the issues certainly arose at our two UK charging stops. Finally though, I want to give some more of my thoughts about charging in general and the direction it is all heading.
