The Western US still doesn't have great coverage. Tesla didn't cover the direct route of PHX/LAS until 3? weeks ago when your posts on Blogs started to appear. But you are incorrect to say it's impossible. It's just a PITA. Up though Flagstaff, or around though Baker, or 4-5 hr in Kingman, or split it into two 2-3 hr stops.
DO NOT stop in Victorville if you can avoid it. Trust me on this. EVgo in Baker rocks!! Make sure to use the restaurant/giftstores they put in to keep this alive.Straight-forward account of someone who travels that all the time
I am curious why anyone bought an EV as a Go Anywhere, Do Anything vehicle, when none exist yet.
Get a KTM 790 and actually 'go anywhere'.
Get a motorhome and trailer to 'do anything'.
I was looking at that situation. There is a single J1772 in Kingman, but there are several NEMA 14-50's RV/Hotel locations. I packed a Tesla Model UMC with the 14-50 and other pigtails for my CA/AZ/NV/UT trip. But any 32 amp or bigger EVSE will do.There isn’t even a Level 2 charger in Kingman - just 110V wall outlets so you would need to spend two nights there in order to get sufficient charge to reach LV. I40 is well served with DCFC east of Flagstaff but going west there is not a DCFC (there is a non working station in Williams) between Flagstaff and Barstow and you cannot make that in an iPace. US is so far behind Europe in charging infrastructure.
Your reason is why I haven't gone electric. I canceled my E-Tron because of this very reason. I told Audi of Scottsdale the car can't get me to Vegas. Electrify America needs a charging station in Kingman for sure. Popping up all around us but not Kingman.
There is a problem that is growing with CCS chargers that is perhaps worse than the actual grid. I've noticed an alarming increase in digital vandalism of Plugshare by Tesla owners and wannabees. They delete stations, they lie about the stations and what they are driving, and they put up editorial anti-CCS, pro-TSLA postings with no info on the chargers.Your reason is why I haven't gone electric.
