Fully Charged recently featured Jess Shanahan's trip along route 57 in Kia Soul EV earlier this spring.

Route 57 crosses 2,580 miles across England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland - through cities, villages, national parks and more.

In the end, the Kia Soul EV seems to have done the job admirable, and perhaps the trip was easier than first expected.

With help from Zap Map charging point locator, range anxiety was reduced to minimum.  Jess only encountered a few problems at planned charging stop (or unexpected weather conditions).

More about the long-distance adventure (and a diary of the adventure) can be found here.
