"You can charge from a 13 amp supply"

So, 1.5 kw...

Which means you can charge a 100 kWh battery in only 2.7 days of continuous charging, or longer if you take it anywhere.

So, in many situations the effective range is really what you can get out of, say, 12 hours of charging, before going somewhere, approximately .3 times the claimed range.
