We love seeing cross country trips using EVs.  Here is a cool trip!

The Van Deerlins (@vivivandeerlin) traveled 3,180 miles to Northern California all the way from Philadelphia to celebrate their 30th anniversary.
(As a cool side note, the couple volunteer at Delaware Valley Tesla Owners Club  @DelValTesla)

Chargers used:

  • The couple used 15 Superchargers
  • and six slower destination charging stations at hotels and other locations

Overall, the couple spent $130 on charging their vehicle during the road trip. They calculated they would’ve needed at least 126 gallons of gasoline with a combustion engine (you can estimate the $$)

Notable quotes:

“We were surprised by how easy it was to drive across the country”

“The car did not disturb the peace and quiet,”  (in Yosemite valley)
