I have driven in the high 80s and the roof was a non issue. the windshield and driver side window on the other hand . . .Seems like pretty reasonable mileage, considering the average speed. Interesting that you didn’t notice any heat from the roof. Some do, some don’t. Hmmm.
Yes, Tehachapi pass in CA and a couple of very long uphills heading into Nevada.Any long up hill stretches? Efficiency looks good considering
Thank you for taking the time to document your journey. I will be taking roughly the same route (hopefully sooooon) but starting in Oregon, then through the Bay Area and on down to Tucson. Perhaps a side trip to Santa Barbara if time and timing allows.
Two charge stops planned - First was fine but had problems with EA chargers in Barstow, Baker and Henderson.
Sound system was great. Vented seats help a lot in 117 degree heat. Didn't notice any issues with heat thru the glass roof. Drive+ was annoying, turned it off after 20 min. Sitting up higher was super nice compared to doing this trip in my now sold Model 3 last month. Seats are awesome (6' 190lbs)
- Loving it to this point. Off to Tucson on Monday so more heat and distance testing.
I’m currently in Tucson moving my daughter since she’s graduated. Luckily everything fits in the truck. Was worried about the vacuum cleaner but the Gear tunnel came to the rescue!!Thank you for taking the time to document your journey.

I don't mind being a trailblazer, but realize the value of following in the footsteps of those that were there before you.
Not as good range today leaving vegas going to Tucson. Lots of wind really killed my range on this 400 mile leg.Thanks! I was thinking closer to 72 so you achieved impressive efficiency all they way down to 65 degrees.
The Barstow EA chargers are at Walmart. I was at one (#7) of the two out front by doors. There are others further back in the lot but guy charging next to me said yhey were all slow.Can you give detail on the EA chargers in Barstow & Baker? Making a trip out there in the future and would be interested to know the issues. Thank you in advance. Great post too!
