Here is a road trip between Southern California and Central Texas using the I-8 and I-10 corridor in Audi e-tron.

I made this trip with a friend driving a 2019 Tesla Model Y LR. We compared notes after the trip. He stopped the same number of times to charge, spent virtually the same amount of money on charging, and his total drive+charge time was within 30 minutes of mine. For all the wailing about how much better Teslas are for the Supercharger network and the much higher EPA range rating, it sure didn’t feel like that much of a difference in real life on a real road trip.

From the author

Our take:

This is a very detailed trip report, covering a large distance. The author outlines charging times and charging costs. A great read indeed.
