02/23/2021VW ID.3: very economical driving

01/15/2021 There is still a great deal of ignorance about electric cars. I found this miserable situation today at a charging station of the Allgäuer Überlandwerk (AÜW) in Ermengerst (municipality of Wiggensbach, South Germany). After heavy snowfall, normal parking lots were cleared and the snow thrown onto the parking lots of the charging station. One loading bay was only accessible through meter-high snow, the other completely buried.
