The wife and I are almost certainly going to be purchasing a 30kwh leaf in the next month or so, and we're getting one on loan for a lifestyle test drive (essentially an extended test for a few days). We're getting it from Nissan Lookers in Newcastle on Friday, and we're going to be driving to London and back to see what it's like for our yearly / twice-yearly trip to see family. This is a 300 mile journey, and the salesman who is going on holiday on Friday said he'll have restless nights wondering how we're getting on, and whether we've become stranded. I've mapped the route, and it appears entirely plausible based on 3 stops, which with having an under 2 year old we'd need anyway in our ICE. As luck has it, it's pretty much the same 3 locations we stop at usually. So the journey plan is: Newcastle to Wetherby (86 miles), taking it easy as if the chargers don't work then next nearest is either 13 miles away (Nissan Dealer in York, backing up on ourselves) or 20 miles to the next services. Wetherby to the Nissan garage at Grantham (87 miles). We'd have gone for the services (they are actually our backup plan) but there's a soft play for the little'n opposite the garage. Grantham to either Cambridge services (58 miles) or Birchanger services (87 miles), the former if little man is still awake. My issue with Birchanger is that it looks like there's only 1 charger, and not much of a backup plan. Then the last part will be 72 or 41 miles, depending where we stopped before. The next tricky part is that family don't have off street parking, but there's a nissan garage a couple of miles away that I'll pop to, or I'll find a paid charger somewhere. I'll update the thread with how we're getting on (or maybe just afterwards). Any tips / advice welcome for someone who hasn't driven an electric car for more than 10 mins, and certainly hasn't used public chargers before!
