Best Route & Charging Options LA to Bay Area?

Hi Team,


I finally worked out a deal: Corris Grey S; and will need to drive it from LA to Monterey County.


Thought I'd check whether anyone has done the drive or mapped out the route, and has recommendations.


Many thanks!

Oh you are brave!
between evgo, electrify america, chargepoint, etc there will be plenty of options. Just plan on having plenty of extra time.

Thanks, still contemplating my level of courage here.


I went to the Open Charge Map, and I did not see that many chargers along the 5 fwy. Please let me know if you believe there's more
and I should look at a different source.


Here's what I found -- start from the bottom and read up.



Home ~ 30 miles from Hollister.



291 McCray St., Hollister 118 miles from Coalinga EvGo

25020 Dorris Ave., Coalinga Best Western 115 miles from Bakersfield.

14684 Aloma St., Lost Hills, Days Inn (this is 200 miles from Riverside, you might not make it. Instead go to Bakersfield, below.)

1717 Truxtun Ave., Bakersfield -- off of the 99. 171 miles from Riverside. Chargepoint.net
START at Riverside with say 180 miles of range.

Looking again, I see I can cut-out the Hollister stop, and just do



START (Riverside) - Bakersfield - Coalinga - HOME.

Danm it's shocking that I5 doesn't have more. It's almost better to take 101!

Most of the chargers are located off the 101 or the 99 rather than the 5.

If you leave the dealer with 100%, looks like you could drive the 190 miles to the Walmart in Delano, charge to 90-100%, then drive the 180 miles to home. Others in CA are reporting 225 miles or more.

BTW, I recommend PlugShare

Thanks for the feedback and tips. Perhaps I've been watching the UK forum range estimates too much, as they're being impacted by a different winter experience.

Also, great tip = Plug Share. Open Charge doesn't even show the Delano Walmart . . .

Speed and temp seem to be the consumption killers. Based on what I’ve seen, if you average less than 55mph and the temps are in the 60’s you will have no trouble getting 225.

That isn’t what I’ve experienced, but I’ve never driven my car with temps above 30F...
