"Topping off" vs slowing down

Recommended Posts

Just got a new EV, and I have been playing around with this very awesome tool.

One think that I noticed is that on long legs where your car just barely makes it, the tool prefers that you drive slower rather than "topping off" at the previous station.  I was just wondering if that makes sense?  I understand that charging slows way down for the last 10%, so I guess the time that it would take to squeeze is that last bit of charge is longer than the time lost by driving slower?

I've had to play with this a bit too, cos ABRP runs my routes about 5 percent battery short. 

I did find that just adding a charging station as a way point will get ABRP to factor in charging there.
