Good luck with the sale! Beautiful car that is nearly unique on the road.

IMO, EVs are still not as good as ICE choices when it comes to interstate travel. Even if they charged in 5 minutes like gas cars refill and actually went 250 miles at 85 mph in all seasons, gas cars have >150,000 refueling locations in the USA. There are few areas where the 'car' decides your itinerary for you like an EV does.

However there is a certain 'adventure' aspect of EV long trips that make them memorable.

Blasphemy but the best Interstate Hauler we ever had was a motorhome. But we had young kids and were towing a race trailer to areas with no hotels or gas stations.
