I think Hybrid tags are useful

Just tagging them with an electrical hazard sign might lead fireys to assume it is an EV and overlook the fuel hazard

Recommended Home Charging Infrastructure

I'd suggest that you at least have a 15A single phase outlet that is accessible where you will normally park the vehicle.

300km trips are rarely done without prior planning.
