I went on a road trip last week. I left the Rivian at home and drove my Tesla. Halfway through the drive, I knew I made the right decision even though seating and trunk space was tight.Hello,
I am picking up an R1S this week after a few years with Tesla. I had my first Tesla in 2018 and would plan trips meticulously knowing exactly when and where to stop to charge. We've since had 5 Teslas and currently only have Teslas. Over the last few years my wife and I have felt like road-tripping a Tesla is just as easy as an ICE vehicle. But with a growing family and a dislike of the MX we are selling our MS and picking up an R1s.
I do the vast majority of my charging at home. However, we do travel between CT and VT on the weekends and the charging appears desolate for CCS vehicles.
Any advice for a NAC to CCS transition?
One of the charging stops has both a Supercharger and EA charger in the same parking lot. There was a long line of vehicles (including three Rivian's) waiting to use the one non-broken EA stall, while more than half of the supercharger stalls were unoccupied and all were working.
Road tripping in the Rivian is going to have to wait until Tesla opens up their superchargers to everyone.
