First long drive in my I-Pace

We took our Santorini black I-Pace from Colorado Springs to Denver on I-25 - a 140 mile round trip. I was nervous as our 2 very young grandchildren went along for the ride. The weather was perfect and the car performed flawlessly. We attained 25.6 kWh/100 miles (133 MPGe) in Comfort Mode on the first leg which includes an 1800 ft drop in elevation.

Drive home saw the temperature in the low 80s so we ran the AC for over half the trip yet we still managed 37.5 kWh/100 miles (90 MPGe) with the associated gain in altitude. We left the garage with a range prediction of 233 miles and pulled back in with 106 still showing. Excellent trip and the grandkids love our I-Pace! What range anxiety?

Awesome!

With some planning you can do medium-sized road trips, for example:

But I have to admit that due to lingering charging infrastructure issues you can't yet go beyond the main population centers and major arteries. Tesla's network is just soooo much better than the generic infrastructure.

Sciencegeek, that's certainly true if we wander away from major highways and well traveled roads but Colorado is fortunate to have lots of charging stations. I don't have the nerve or patience to drive cross country but things are getting better. I kept my Ford Fusion for those types of trips but I'm lucky to get 20 MPG city and 30 highway. Our lovely I-Pace handles 95% of my driving needs.

Meldev, I love the color of your car! Things are getting better for the EV community with new charging stations popping up everywhere. I think we can get to Grand Junction via Buena Vista as there is a fast charger there.

I am in the middle of my first medium long trip in the I-pace from New York to Virginia Beach. So far it has been great. I found two Electrify America stations on the way and both charged perfectly. Add to that a FREE charge at Maryland House on I-95 and this has been a great trip with no Battery Range issues.

I will say that cruising at 75 -80 certainly sucks the electrons a lot faster.. LOL

PGhiron, sounds like you're enjoying the drive, eh? What kind of range are you getting at highway speed?

Here's an article about a long trip in England and the travails of EV driving where there's not a lot of support:

I'm not sure I have the patience to try something like this.

Garage
I did a mini road trip of my own from DC to the Smith Bowman Distillery (highly recommended!) in Fredericksburg, VA this past weekend. The trip was around 60 miles each way with 1/3rd in urban Memorial Day traffic and the rest at highway speeds (75-80 mph) with a few bursts of rapid acceleration to get around slow cars (and for fun). I set out with the SOC at 100% and GoM showing a range of 264 miles (temps were in the high 70s/mid 80s). There were four adults in the car and we had the AC and the front cooled seats going full time. On the way back we had a couple cases of bourbon and gin plus the extra weight of all the food/drinks we had at lunch (@Foode - also highly recommended). The In Control app showed a consumption of 35.5 kWh/100 mi on the way there and 35.3 kWh/100 mi on the way back. When I got home the SoC was at 49% with the GoM showing a range of 120 miles. According to my calculations the furthest I will ever need to go on a single charge is 120 miles. My concerns of range have officially been banished.

That is an odd article. There are a lot of CCS chargers on that route, at least 20 in 300 miles. The biggest gap is 62.8 miles between chargers.

I guess they wanted to use only one brand of CCS?
