Continuing here is the part 2 i.e return trip of Arun from mangalore to bangalore. You can check out Part 1 here.
Return trip from Mangalore to Bangalore in my Kona Electric. Lot of people returning back to Bangalore. Queues in all the tolls as "Fastag" was slow. But a very enjoyable drive with zero range anxiety. Left my in-laws at 10.20 am with 100% SOC.
Arrived at my farm house 50 kms away with 86% SOC and 285 kms of range left.
Plugged into to charge with my wall charger and charged back to 100% SOC by the time I had my lunch and left at 2.30pm.
Reached Sakaleshpur with 218 kms or range left and 65% SOC.
Reached Advaith Hyunadai Hassan with 54% SOC and 202 km of range without AC and 195 km with AC. Plugged into charge and was drawing 7kw. Added ~ 60 kms of charge by the time we have some food at a restaurant nearby and came back in an hour.
Reached back home at 9.30pm with 8% SOC and 34 kms of range left. Both onward and return trip with AC at 22-24°C ventilated seats on and in comfort mode. Awesome trip. No range anxiety, full confidence going forward!
