(Versao em Portugues no final da pagina)

Last weekend we decided to take our Electric Car and go west (Go weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeest!).

Destination? Lyme Regis in Dorset.

Distance? 69 miles from our house

EV Range? 90 miles

Rapid Charge on the way: Dorchester (charge your car) for 1 hour

Lyme Regis is a very beautiful ancient town at the Dorset- Devon border which is featured in the Domesday Book. The town is famous for its fossils, landscape and  films such as Persuasion and  The French Lieutenant’s Woman.

When we got there, we left our car charging at a car park and we went for a quick walk long The Cobb (the harbour wall) and had chips. We didn’t spend much time there but it’s definitely a place worth visiting again. We decided to set Lyme Regis as our destination for our first “go-west” trip in our electric car and we were pleased to know that it was doable.

Although we used a rapid charger in Dorchester which is on the way to Lyme Regis we didn’t need to stop there again on the way back 🙂 and we still had 16 miles on the clock (ok, ok it was a flashing red light haha). A bit of range anxiety on my part but we made it!

Hope you like the photos and if you’d like to know more about what to see and do in Lyme Regis, click here.

It was worth going down 113 steps from the car park 😉 / Valeu a pena descer 113 degraus do estacionamento.

Having chips 🙂 / Comendo batata frita 🙂

Versao em Portugues:

No fim de semana passado resolvemos pegar nosso Carro Eletrico e seguir oeste (o que nos fez lembrar a musica do Pet Shop Boys: Go weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeest!)

O destino? Lyme Regis em Dorset.

A distancia? 69 milhas da nossa casa

Autonomia do carro eletrico? 90 milhas

Carga Rapida no caminho: em Dorchester (atraves do charge you car) por 1 hora.

Lyme Regis eh uma cidadezinha muito bonita que fica na fronteira entre Dorset e Devon e consta no livro Domesday. A town eh famosa pelos fosseis, paisagem e filmes como Persuasion e The French Lieutenant’s Woman.

Ao chegarmos la, deixamos nosso carro carregando no estacionamento e fomos dar uma volta pelo The Cobb ( onde os barcos ficam) e comemos batata frita. Nao ficamos muito tempo por la mas definitivamente vale a pena visitar de novo. Decidimos por Lyme Regis como nosso destino pois foi a primeira vez que fizemos uma viagem – no carro eletrico – seguindo pro oeste e ficamos contentes em saber que eh viavel.

Apesar de termos usado um rapid charger (carregador rapido) em Dorchester que fica no caminho para Lyme Regis nos nao precisamos fazer o mesmo na volta 🙂 e ao chegarmos em casa ainda tinhamos 16 milhas no painel (ok, ok, a luz vermelha estava piscando haha). Um pouquinho de ansiedade de autonomia de minha parte mas conseguimos!
