It will be at Rubicon Springs where most people camp their second night. The 10-12 hour time would be on house current. I'm sure this would be the fast charger on 220/240 volt.I thought they'd said it takes 10-12 hrs to charge the battery? Says 2 in the article. Because different charger?
Rubicon Springs is privately owned. It's where the old hotel once stood and there are already private cabins, and other structures associated with Jeep Jamboree. They helicopter in a grand piano even.I agree - Having a solar house and battery car is great. I don't want to see a huge array of panels anywhere near the trails.
On the more remote parts of I-5 the trucks are going 80 and the cars are all doing 90 or more. It's not SoCal.90 mph + in a 70-75 zone on crappy often congested CA freeways? I think the majority of readers and local FRWY users would say that is being an irresponsible driver that cares little for the safety of others using the 5 FRWY and who more closely follow the posted limits. 75-80 in light traffic (whenever that is) sure, but 90+?
When you eventually get stopped by the CHP I hope you are polite to the officer and accept your expensive ticket graciously. That is unless you have a get “out of ticket free card“.....
It will be where the old hotel was located when this was a stagecoach road. At Rubicon Springs where they hold the Jeep Jamboree. There are already structures there, a big dance floor, etc. My guess is it will help support the Jeep Jamborees and reduce dependence on generators during the event. And it is private land owned by a large group of Jeepers.Great so now we are going to litter the great outdoors with these chargers. Please stop the madness.
As it is private, they can do with it as they please, IMO....provided that use is not infringing on the natural, negative rights of others.It will be where the old hotel was located when this was a stagecoach road.

Right on! Speed is the big drain. My current EV has a real short range. But during some experiments where I drive at low speeds and regen as much as I can, I can get about 30% more range. I've never tried a super low speed like on a trail but I would imagine it can get a little better.Speed is the enemy of electric vehicle efficiency. On the Rubicon and Moab trails you crawl, as I'm sure you know. My Prius gets 70 MPG on drives into Los Angeles on freeways choked with bumper to bumper traffic. But on high speed runs up Hwy 5 where you run 90 mph or more it drops into the high 30's. The article says they were able to run the 22 mile long Rubicon trail totally in electric mode. But since I take both my car and my Jeep on long trips I want to know what the gas-only mpg is with the added 700+ pounds the 4xe is carrying. There has to be a big hit there.
