Thank you everyone for the feedback and sharing your experience.

We have 22" and have been EV road tripping for 6 years (mostly with Tesla, and last trip to Lake Tahoe from SoCal on R1S). Agree about "total travel time" philosophy of driving slower and charging less often on a long trips.

Sounds like a quick stop at Indio/Palm Springs area is most common sense approach. We're leaving early AM so we'll time breakfast with the short stop. Also, by all means I won't get near Cabazon.

After looking up the EA map, there is a station in Prescott so will definitely go that way and evaluate the SOC at Prescott area. Its all "downhill" to Sedona from Prescott so its a matter of how much charge it will take to get to Prescott.

I use this handy website to get a general sense of elevation change and the road grades for road trips. (https://www.flattestroute.com/)

We're traveling on 2nd week of January so will report back after the trip how it all worked out.

Happy Holidays!
Thought I would provide the stats from this morning in my R1S on 22s from HB to Indio, 405/55/91/60/10.

Started at 60%, ended at 19%, so used 41%. Was driving 71 mph most of the way on cruise just to have steady speed using conserve on the freeway. Temps in upper 60s, no wind to speak of and surprisingly for SoCal no traffic.

I think unless driving at 65, this is probably best case for that stretch, condition could not be more favorable than what I had. My trip meter said 122 miles and 2.47 miles per kWh, works out to around 297 miles at 100%.

This is really helpful. Thanks!

I'll be going up 5/55/91/60/10 so your consumption data is a good benchmark to Indio.
