    "Plug it in at night, you have 238 miles of range every morning."

    If the plug is a 240V NEMA 14-50. If it is a 120V outlet, not so much.

    Thank you kindly.

    Unless you only drive 35 miles per day. :D Looks like about 60 hours to a full charge from a depleted battery via 120V outlet.

    Then why would you care about 238 miles of range?

    Thank you kindly.

    Power outage? Unexpected grocery run? Who knows. I do know that I don't keep my ICE car with it's fuel gauge on empty all the time even though the 35 miles of fuel left in the tank is technically enough for another day.
