To add, I rarely drive more than 30-40 daily, when I've travelled beyond the range of the car I've always planned my route to ensure that I know where my next charging stop will be (Octopus Multiverse ...

Also I may just have to accept that shortened battery life is a consequence of my driving lifestyle. I guess people who do high mileage have different issues. Doesn't sound like an EV will be worse ...

The 12 volt battery is a weak spot, I have a timer set to tell me I need to take a drive or else it's jump leads.
I'm surprised it hasn't been engineered out of EVs, though there are very good reason ...
