This is one real & straightforward report – what to do when the chargers are broken. The charging infrastructure is not even nearly there when it comes to long-hauls but it is not insurmountable according to Kevin Williams. How do you handle driving through charging dead zones?

This is a trip from Ohio to DC, 400 miles on each side. But there are zero DC fast charging options for the cities of Washington, PA, Wheeling, WV, or Morgantown, WV.

Often what is feasible on the maps or apps is far from reality, sometimes because of broken chargers, throws you off terrain or possibly can get you stranded with a dead car middle of nowhere and put you farther away from your destination adding to the drive time

Kevin Williams is still optimistic about Electric cars and shares a few important tips to tackle road-tripping in EVs.
