"Time to open charge port" in route plan

Question

With "Time to open charge port" you can include some fixed time per charging stop. I have the impression that this time is included in the driving time for the route and not in the charging time (since adding some extra minutes does not influence the charging time, but the driving time.

Is this correct and wouldn't it be better to reflect this time in the charging time?

I agree to certain extent, it is kind of part of charging. At the same time, we don't want to bolster the charging times to make it look like EVs charger slower than they actually do (to avoid putting EV beginners off). So for now, it will remain part of driving time.

Actually I disagree. Perhaps add an additional line, but this is not part of driving, but of charging. Actually this overhead time differs also from station to station. As an advanced feature you could take this into account, too. Can you start charging immediately after leaving the highway or does it take a while.

I don't agree.  While this is added when charging, this is mostly a matter of the time spent driving off the highway to reach the charger.  In some locations the charger is right off the chosen route so I can see that you would think of this as charging time rather than driving time, but there are times when the charger is some miles off the route you wish to follow.  Do you really think this driving time should be included in the driving time?

I would think that the routeplanning part does incl. the time and distance to drive to the charger. So that already is covered.
