Going on holiday in an electric vehicle is not an issue. Firstly, the ranges offered by many models are now so high that closer holiday destinations, such as Tyrol, South Tyrol and Bavaria, can easily be reached without needing to recharge en-route. For more distant locations, recharging will be necessary. However, this is not an issue – particularly in Austria, Germany and France – as it can be done at motorway service stations. In Italy, charging stations are somewhat sparse so it is important to plan carefully. But there are tools to help you do so, such as ABRP or PUMP. VW ID models feature a route planner as standard: it calculates suitable charging stops when going on long journeys.
