I'll be picking up my wife's CPO 85D soon (assuming I ever have an actual conversation with sales rep, which would be a different post.)
I've got to get it from Paramus, NJ to Dallas.
Using the online trip planner I'm approximating by selecting the 75D. I don't see a way to choose one of the older battery models.
I tried manually tweaking the route URL to include "v=MS_2015_85D", but no dice.
I don't see any easy way to determine timing between stops, separate from charging time, so I can decide where to grab a hotel.
The MS has ~20k miles, so should get close to full range, though it's looking like I'll be driving in some cold weather.
I'm suspecting the planner does not consider this, so I'm expecting more or longer stops until I get farther south.
It appears the planner avoids going through major cities and really doesn't want to take the route through Memphis and Little Rock.
That could limit the hotel choices along the way. Expecting I'll have to stop twice if I can get a fairly early start. Not sure if that's realistic for how the pickup process works.
Any recommendations on how to plan the full trip; taking advantage of charger locations to overlap with sleep stops?
Advise, lessons learned, etc. are appreciated.
