  1. I have only just started playing around with ABRP as a means of getting a feel for whether driving an EV is feasible in our rural France location (Charente). But in looking at a few simulated journeys, it seems that ABRP was using speeds up to 90 km/h on french country roads. The speed limits for these roads was reduced last year to 80 km/h. This new speed limit covers those roads without a physical barrier between the traffic travelling in opposite directions, I believe. Being a newbie, I may be misunderstanding ABRP's output, but I thought I would flag it up as it could be quite an important problem if it's real. I have attached a couple of screenshots by way of illustration. The first is on a stretch of the N141/E603 near us where the limit is 80 km/h (one lane in each direction) where ABRP is planning 90 km/h. The second is from a dual carriageway stretch further east where the speed limit is 110 km/h. Am I missing something?
  2. Where are you from? Department of Charente, in France, but from UK originally. What car do you drive? Peugeot 308 at present. Planning on moving to EV, probably an Ioniq. ABRP seems like it could be a useful tool to work out how feasible this plan might be. Public chargers are quite rare round here! What's the longest trip you've taken in your EV? N/A
