Supercharging Choices for Long Trips



When driving on a long trip over multiple Supercharger stops, offer several choices to elect to use more stops, with shorter charge sessions or fewer stops with longer charge sessions.


There are various philosophies drivers use when planning to charge on a long trip: frequent short charging sessions vs. fewer long, deep charging sessions.  A Better Route Planner offers this type of modeling in their trip planning tool and it would be great to see this added to the onboard navigation options.

Even a "recalculate supercharging options" command, or a "select alternative charging strategy".

I really like your suggestion of avoidance of depletion vs. driving conservatively.  I have often thought it would be nice if there was an option for how low an SOC you are willing to tolerate.  Obviously on some routes with some cars, it might still have to go below that.

"Fewer stops" vs. "Briefer stops" would be the alternatives or endpoints of the range of options.  Three choices should be fine.

Could also be a an your trip mode in which each proposed stop might offer the next before or next after stops as options, and then build the route sequentially.

Could also offer a choice between more conservative avoidance of depletion, vs. willing to risk driving more conservatively if running lower than estimated.
