I am in CA, in fact Bay Area. For normal daily use, I agree, I haven’t encounter any inconvenience. In fact, it is even more convenient because I don’t need gas station stop.
My recent trip from Mountain View to Lake Tahoe actually give me anxiety and inconvenience. Tesla, or maybe most EV recommend you to keep SOC at 50%. So day in an day out, my are at 60% charge. On the night before the road trip, I went to nearby super charger for a top off from about 45%, it took me 1 hour to get above 300 miles.
One the day, the trip planner said I should stop at Folsom for charge. I wonder why I can’t just make to Tahoe. Then I realized due to the uphill route, my range is 30% shorter, so Folsom stop made sense. I also have 8 month old, so we made quite a few unscheduled but short stop. None of these small stop has super charger. Keep in mind, when the baby started crying, you may not want to search for super charger for stop, you just stop on the next exist. When we got to folsom, I had 100 mile left. Charging back to full take 1 hour 15 min. By by that time, my 8 months old were sleeping. Given a choice, I would have keep driving until he woke up. And like this, other smaller inconveniences were throughout the trip.
Telsa fans will say I just haven’t get used to owning a EV, which is true. Can I make it work for road trip? YES. But to me, I’d like to have my trip where my car is the least of any concerns, this is speically true since I have a 8 month old. I don’t see Tesla is able to offer that. It may, but not just yet.
