When deciding to buy an electric car, we knew that for about 98% of our driving, our Model Y would be optimal – no gas, low maintenance, and a mostly comfortable ride. But there is one area that was a known point of potential friction, road trips.

In a gas car, this is not much of a concern as fuel stops are all over the place but with electric car charging, it’s easy but also complicated.
