Plan very carefully for Spain. Away from the coast, you can go scores of miles between rapid charge points.
All Nissan Ariya related discussions
I did the day before so that probably reflects that in the GOM. My Spain/Portugal tour has had me thinking more about range than usual so practising with it made some sense.
I haven't had the guts to take the EV to Southern Spain but we took my wife's petrol engined car last year, returning home mid November. I paid particular attention to the viability of using non-Tesla EV. What did I observe? Filter out all single point chargers and an awful lot of charge points disappear. (On the single chargers, I noticed a lot of low level thought process. The driver connects up and disappears, perhaps for lunch and a rest. There doesnt seem to be the EV driver logic of charge to 80% y vamos.) The charge point density is very low in some regions. You can run 200 miles from Zaragoza to Valencia without a single multi-point charger. Similarly, run 350 miles from Pau to Madrid and there are depressingly few chargers. Iberdrola control a lot of chargers so have their App on board. Whatever trip you intend to take, I'm not saying that it's not possible but you really do need to plan carefully. I will be very interested to hear your experience to, perhaps give me courage.
Just thought id ad a little information into the conversation…..like milkfloat not taken the Aryia to my house in Spain but did a motorhome trip across the Chunnel through France , into Spain then on to Portugal south to north ( I had an old leaf in Portugal tailgate me for less drag for about 80 miles , could barely see him in my mirrors )then home on the ferry from Bilbao. I was paying particular attention to charging points on this journey . The French / Spanish / Portuguese motorway network seemed well catered for . Can’t really speak for charging off the motorway network except for my local area . Los alcatherez in the murcia region . At several petrol stations on the AP7 motorway there are 10 150 kw stations controlled by iberdrola ( Spanish electric supplier) and locally like back home most Aldi and Lidl supermarkets have chargers . Worth a shot if your stuck .
I have detailed the journey I took elsewhere. Local Apps are at times vital. Check with the aggregator apps what they cover. Aldi & Lidl are a good shout and of course the Tesla app. Just make sure you have a card associated with the app and if you have time a physical RFID card for the bigger apps, comms are not always that good.
