The closest level 2 charger to us is 130 miles away. One of our Family trips is also about 130 miles from us, how do I travel that distance with the Leaf in any reasonable amount of time. So for that 2 times a year I would need a range extender, I could take the Leaf, but right now that isn't an option. And yes I know I have the wrong EV for the job, but I have the Leaf and for 98% of our driving it works fine.
