Charging

Both rapid charging networks (Electric Highway and CPS) plus overnight on a destination post at my overnight hotel.

 

The EV itself 

A fantastic new car with a much more capable range than my old BMW i3. Charging was easy and straight forward but I had to wait 10 mins at Wetherby Services for a rapid to become free. I arrived at my Aberdeen hotel with 10% SOC and woke up to a full battery the next morning on a CPS destination post before continuing my journey south to Glasgow.

 

Road trip conclusion

Very easy with the e-Niro but I wish the charging speed/curve allowed fasting charging for longer so I could get back on the move sooner.
