Most EVs on the road today have a very limited range. Today’s early adopters tend to only use them for commuting and local journeys – my Hyundai has a range of 120miles and doesn’t leave Worcestershire.
However, most normal drivers often make long journeys and expect to refuel on the way. Assuming a 60-80kWh battery, this means they need a 100-150kWh charger to ensure their stop is comfortably under 30 minutes. And that is without considering if that stop is somewhere conveniently along their journey.
Just 60% of public chargers are merely Fast, rated only 7kWh, and most are based in towns. Until there is a robust in-transit network of Rapid chargers, the mainstream will just dismiss the process as difficult.
