Distance: 181 km - Drive time: 2hr 34min
Both the BMW i3 and Hyundai Ioniq have a 200km range so without use of the heater/AC you will just be able to make it to Kaikoura on a single charge, however we recommend charging up in Amberly on the way to ensure you have sufficient charge to get to Kaikoura.
Once you get to Kaikoura, there is a charging station in the town for your return journey.
We recommend you book a Hyundai Ioniq for longer trips.
