We have relatives all over Texas but from what I can see there are not really the fast Tesla charging station on roads we normally take on visits.
Also if I was to try and detour via a road that had one it would add a lot of miles and time to the trip. That seems counter productive.
Here is an example and would this vehicle work without the range issue.
We are outside Austin Texas
Going to Houston about a 200-210 mile trip
There are no fast charging stations on HWY 290 which is a major road actually between these cities.
Being in Texas and around 100 degrees all summer we would need the AC on all trip and maybe the radio/CD player if it has one.
Could we do it without being nervous and what happens if there is an accident for some reason and we have to go slow. How does that drain the range.
This car also would be a all around car as we could not afford to drive it only on short trips.
Or is my thinking to wait for a 400+ range car better.
Thanks for responding
