There’s another problem too though. EA needs to start charging per KWH rather than by the minute. I looked at a road trip, and all the EA chargers were like .89 a minute (I believe that was at the 350 KWH stations). I know there are laws that need to change, but you should be charged for the actual energy, not the time as charging times and peaks vary.Depending on what kind of mileage the Mach-e gets at high speeds, anyway. It's interesting that ABRP is currently showing just 2.64 miles/kWh @ 65 MPH for the Mach-e AWD ER. For the whole 780 mile drive that would calculate to 295 kWh used, which is $89 @ $0.30/kWh. 780 miles @ 25 MPG ICE is 31 gallons. $2.87/gal would be the break-even gas price for that. That's in the general range of where the national avg price usually sits. Probably more on the expensive coastal cities though.
I'm hoping the Mach-e does better than 2.64 MPK at 65 MPH. (Although most of the Utah drive is 80 MPH so it could actually fall below 2.5 MPK.)
