It’s that time of year again when students and their parents travel around the country visiting university open days – and this year it’s us. Our daughter has chosen to visit the University of Liverpool first so that’s where we’re going today.
It’s 150 miles from our home in Northampton. With our previous EV, the Renault ZOE, I would have been nervous as it would have meant charging twice on the way.
With our new i3 I’m much more relaxed as it will only need one charge to get us there. And that has been at Stafford services on the M6, and has gone well, courtesy of an Ecotricity CCS rapid charger. The car fully charged in the time it took us to have breakfast.
