i look the charger screen say: remaining charge time 44 minutes its not the same you put on video : fast charger charges our electric car in 20-30 minutes????
You definitely demonstrated what can be done with sufficient fast chargers along your route. But honestly,, you had to do this about 20 times in 24 hours? Yeach! I'm thinking a minimum standard of a 40Kwh battery in the belly is what we'll eventually see in the electrics,, with the option for a bigger battery if the customer can afford it. With a 140 mile range or better,, should be much less range anxiety or boredom from having to recharge so many times.
Good video. Thank you for doing this report and thank you for this video. I just read the news today that Nissan is finally installing 100 fast chargers in their dealerships across United States. When it comes to these types of technologies, California is ahead of rest of US. Europe is ahead of California. Japan is ahead of Europe.
Nissan should hire you guys to do an educational and promotional documentary and more road trip with EV!
We need to get fast charge on the U.S. 1100 fast chargers in the world and only 30 in the U.S. 800 in Japan.

next time a round trip from amsterdam to berlin. that would be a statement.
In germany chademo is unkown. they keep repeating that EVs are CRAP that take 8 to 10 hours to recharge. no one would even DREAM! of 20 minutes.
The 1979 VW Rabbit diesel got 58 mpg !!! 33 years ago !!
The electric mobility is already overdue by over a decade. We can no longer afford to intentionally injure Planet Earth by using fossile fuels. The currently high prices of electric vehicles are politically motivated by at least half. Best congratulation to these guys. They have clearly demonstrated both the practiability ant the fun factor of this clean technology which does not injure Earth. My next car will be electric.
