Distance from home ~150 miles. Equipment: Tesla Model S 60kwh.
Needed: A J1772 outlet, or better still, a NEMA 14-50 at the ski resort itself. Hell, even a 110v will do. I called the ski resort, and they acted like I was a Martian talking to earthlings.
They never knew what my car was.
Taking my trusty Acura TSX was not as much fun, but the fill up was damn short at 2 minutes. Car was also fairly quiet, and comfortable.
I think ICE age will come to an end, but very very slowly. What we need is the battery capacity to double and the charge time to halve. Both have to happen in order for EVs to have a hope of competing on range and convenience for long trips in the charger free wilderness that is America.
