Ave 60 MPH for 4 hours on a battery that will go 220 miles?
Maybe 3 hours, leaving a little reserve before charging.
No thanks, We blast along for 350+ miles at a time then gas up in minutes and then usually dine while covering more miles.

Your math is pretty crappy. 3 hours at 60 MPH is 180 miles. The Tesla gets 220-250 Miles per tank. I cited the low end, that’s even 3:40. But there’s also a planned long-range battery that can get you 350 miles at a time. It would take a full hour to charge. If you’re going to drive 700 miles in a day, I recommend having a full meal when you take a break, not eating while you drive. In any event, I think the family that takes a total of an hour of breaks (or more) in the middle of 700 mile journey is far more typical than yours.
Dont give me some crappy math garbage buddy! At 220 miles, as YOU quoted in the first post I see about 3 hours of driving time before sitting idle for whatever time it takes some plug to charge the thing. Assuming a conservative 10-15% reserve, as I implied in my quote leaving a little reserve before charging. (unless you want to get caught dead in traffic with AC/radio/wipers consuming the last electrons) you get 187 to 198 miles. That math expert is just 3.1 to 3.3 hours of windshield time at 60 mph.
And when you have several hundred trips of 1,000+ miles behind you, you can tell me how to take breaks on long trips.
you makes yur vanity posts.. you takes yur chances...
