Just driving inland on the eastern side of Australia.The towns are in the range 100km to 150km apart.
Try driving through areas where the gas stations are ~200 miles apart... Yes, there are signs 'fill up NOW'. I've driven through a number. (Alaska, Canada, North Dakota, Texas).
When I head south 230km would get me to a town with the next town a further 130km. Do the 30 minute charge then the next town to stop at is again 230km as 300km would not get to the next town after that. With the next charge a possible 110km down the road
230+130+230+110=700km, not 1000 km.
It looks like you're forgetting that the totals here are 500 km starting/maximum range and charging is 300km in 30 minutes(slowing after that). You're not actually restricted to precisely 300km of recharge in 30 minutes. So you might or might not get 400km in 40 minutes. More likely if you're running near empty. IE to reach 500 km range from 200 km range will take longer than reaching 400km from 100 km. 100km to 400km is the 30 minute charge. Start at 40km left? That first 60km should take less than 6 extra minutes.
230+130=460km. Drive to the second town, fill up. Probably want to spend a bit more than exactly 30 minutes there. ~400 km range after charge. We're out of stated driving distances...
Anyways, the goal should be that, while keeping a safety margin, you simply stop long enough until you hit the sweet spot between getting the fast charge and how far you can stretch to reach the next charge point.
So if a 36 minute charge gets you to the next charge point, you hang around for the extra 6 minutes. If a 24 minute charge gets you to a charge point but the next charger is another 30 minutes charge away due to having to get over 400km in the battery, then you leave a bit earlier. Or if you're enjoying lunch, you gain more margin, because why not?
With the initial charge you mentioned and planing for the 30 minute stops it would be doable with stops needing to be more planned than "i want a break lets stop here".
Depends on you. You're unlikely to want to stop on a full charge(when you first started driving), so as long as you stop and top off your vehicle at the same time, you should be good.
Another thing I thought of - part of the reason for stopping is because sitting for long periods isn't good for you, so multiple drivers, short of a larger vehicle where the passengers can stretch their legs, shouldn't actually speed things up too much as the passengers need breaks as well.
To convert back to US measurements, 300 miles at 60 mph(average) = 5 hours, which is about the time between meals anyways.
Once down to wanting the 30 min for 300km charges would be stopping in as little as 230km to charge. Starting with a full charge would stop to charge 3 times. Starting with a 30 minute charge would stop to charge 4 times. Making it a 2 day trip instead of 1 day would save 1 charge later in the trip at the cost of a motel room for the night.
First, I always assume starting a long drive with a full battery. Hell, I do that with gasoline vehicles - I top off as I'm leaving town.
Second, it looks like you're disregarding that you have roughly 100km of flex in charging locations, and that's before you figure that you can just spend a little more time in one location to avoid an additional stop. Oh, and that if you add stops you remove the need for the stops to be 30 minutes.
It was a round trip of 28km to the local shop for the bottle of vegemite I got the other day. For those trips an electric car with a range of a few hundred km would not think twice.
Nope, which is actually the reason why EVs could replace 90% of vehicles on the road today - because your trip is unusual.
Oh, here's another way to look at it: If we get all the city-dwellers to switch over to EVs, that means more liquid fuel for those of us who live out in the country! Cheaper gasoline for us! Stop trying to stop me from convincing them to buy EVs!
