The drive up to the Golden state’ coast is one the exciting and beautiful road trips you can take. It’s a relatively straight route on  I-5 between California’s two main cities. But if you want to experience the coast land, diversity of hikes, beaches, you have to use the coastal route – Highway 1.(Check out the images above)

Using the I-5 route it takes around 6 to 7 hours without any stops. This trip uses Chevy Bolt and clocks a travel time very close to the estimate for regular combustible vehicle.
