Hi everyone, I posted a couple times here before about how I did a roadtrip in my 2014 Spark EV from Southern California to Edmonton, AB, CAN. In the middle of winter no less. I put together some maps of the back and forth trips. First one is from December 2014, and then when I had to return the car, in December 2016. I only needed a tow once, when I underestimated some evaluational gradients in Northern California on the way up. The charging infrastructure has gotten a lot better in the two years between road trips. However, there is still much improvement to be made- 4 DC fast chargers were broken along the way back, which set me back at least a day, maybe two. With a few more fast chargers in key locations, I think this trip could be done in 5 days. Or perhaps just three days if there was a fast charge network that went through Montana and Utah along interstate 15. They were unforgettable journeys, and it made me feel like I was an old-west pioneer, battling the elements, and conserving precious energy for inclement weather, steep mountains and very long days.
