Congratulations (if that is in order!!). I hope it works out for you.
Unfortunately, a 300 mile drive won't work out so well. It'll be either a two day drive for you, or a very long one day drive.
If you drive exceedingly carefully you can get 120 miles out of it... real careful!! 300 mile means there is no point attempting more than 100 miles at a time. You will need to recharge for 6 to 7 hours for each of the next 100 miles. You could pick up early, say 8 AM, get to your first point and plug in by 10AM, ready charged for 5PM. The the next 100 miles to a hotel that offers a charge point, start charging at 8PM, ready for the morning. That's about the only way I can see you can do that.
If you've got a friend at either of your 100 mile locations, you could blag an overnight on their couch and have a 12 hour recharge from the 3-pin lead, if you have one.
You will still have to drive exceedingly carefully for each 100 miles, no heating nor a/c, and I can't say if you happen to have a car with a battery with a lower capacity (that Paul's and mine seem to be, which seem to be that we have the full 22 ish kWh).
It might be better to ask for, or arrange for, delivery.
What was your deal? I presume one of the recent £8k cars? I think I suggested before to make transportation home of the car one of the deal-breakers for the dealership, if anyone is brave enough to try a Fluence. That should be a no-cost for them if they time it for when their transporters are available, or at max an 'at cost' expense to them, so I can't imagine they'd really refuse. Did you buy, or get a hire-purchase?
