There’s a guy on YouTube under the channel name of “Battery Life” who does “RaCoBe” (Range, Consumption, Best Speed) tests on EVs to try and work out the optimum speed to drive at when you consider the faster you go, the more energy you use and thus the longer you spend charging when you stop.
I seem to remember the Zoe in his tests came out as 120kph (70mph) as the optimum speed to drive at, which is convenient here in the UK!
That said, it can depend on the journey - sometimes you might prefer the journey if you drive at 60mph continuously rather than 70mph with a stop to charge.
I’d say most two hour journeys are easily within the scope of the Zoe’s range, even in winter if you start with close to a full charge. If you play at venues which happen to have destination charging then you’ll be laughing! Otherwise you’ll have to make the decision to either leave home early and recharge close to the venue so that you have a hassle-free return journey after the gig, or accept that your journey home will have to take in a charging stop.
My brother is a freelance musician based in the south east and I’ve so far failed to convince him that an EV is the way to go even though it seems to me it would be ideal for him; the problems he can see are just the classic non-problems touted by the hand-wringing anti-EV brigade who have never actually lived with one. He wants a hybrid but I’ve told him he’s wasting his time on a technology which is essentially a box-ticking exercise to make people feel like they’re being green. The complexity and pollution of a fossil fuel vehicle, exacerbated by dragging a pile of batteries around everywhere. Great
