EV20Q 54 - Adding EV Charging points from Révéo network to PlugShare
Driving electric car in France – Adding charge points to the PlugShare app
After a week in the house not really going anywhere I needed to get out for a drive my car. My Nissan Leaf electric car had been sitting in the garage going nowhere and she needed some exercise. So we set out towards France to find some Révéo electric vehicle charge points and add them to the PlugShare application. I was easily able to visit five of these EV chargers just across the border in a cluster just south of Perpignan. There were some good views in the French countryside and some pretty little villages. I could see the Pyrenees nearby and it was a good day out.
I use one of the chargers in a town near to the coast and was disappointed with the speed of the charging. He came in at a paltry 3 kW and in the 48 minutes I was there added virtually nothing to my battery. So instead of driving all the way to Girona to give one final top up before getting home I pulled into Figueres Nissan dealer. I stayed there until I had sent out present in the battery and then I drove home. The cost of the driving for the day was about €2.50 and it was good to get out in my Nissan Leaf car.
