Since I know that a few people at RT have prior experience with stuff bigger than TTL circuits, can you please check my math here?

Per the reports of

Tesla owners and

VW's e-Golf specs, it appears that the current status quo is an average draw of 300 watt*hours per mile over a typical driving cycle between recharges.

For the e-Golf:

Mk1 battery = 24.2 kWh for 83 miles, or 292 watt*hours per mile.

Mk2 battery = 35.8 kWh for 124 miles, or 289 watt*hours per mile.

For argument sake, let's just use 300 watt*hours per mile.

What I'm trying to do is get a napkin-math estimate of the instantaneous power needed to keep an EV moving at 60 MPH...which was chosen because it is one mile per minute and also a reasonable highway speed. Is the math as simple as this?

300 watt*hours / 0.01667 (minutes per hour) = 18,000 watts

Am I making a mistake or losing some units somewhere?

We don't know how much extra power will be needed to also tow a 1,500 pound generator behind an RV, but I'm thinking that

20-25 kW of generator is enough to cut the battery recovery times down to a usual 15-minute pee stop every few hours:

I believe that this particular unit is single phase, but there are multi-phase towables available.

Now, how do we get 20kW into the car?

SAE J1772-2009?

CCS with DC?

Anderson connector?????
