Heck, ten minutes on a 50kW CHAdeMO DCQC will give you 30 miles
! Rather than rely on that, it would be preferable if you could make arrangements to slowly but regularly charge your car from the mains while at work. Even though the car you are looking at has low mileage, it would be nice to have a capacity test performed on it to find out exactly what the state of that battery is.
NikoV6, I was thinking about you as I just came back from a 56-mile (90km) round trip. Left fully charged, drove maybe 50 miles of that on the freeway at anywhere between 55mph-70mph (mostly around 60mph), coasting on all the downhills, yet I had two bars blinking (and RR=7) by the time I got home. Had aircon on as it is hot here today. My battery capacity is presently 38.7Ah.
Thinking about your situation, I don't think I'd want to play such games on a daily basis in cutthroat commute traffic; nevertheless, if most of your commute is indeed at lower speeds ("I rarely get over 55mph during my commute on mainly A roads"
), you should be ok.
