From Miwa

The car was great to drive on the road trip. The trip is a bit over 500 miles each way, and since I was super-conservative, I planned on making 3 stops on the way (and one in Vegas once I got there). I was prepared for non-working EA chargers, but every single one functioned as expected, both going there and heading back.

When I got home, the trip computer reported less than 340Wh/mi, which was better than I expected. There are definitely some decent elevation changes, and it can be pretty windy in places (as evidenced by the huge wind farm near Tehachapi).

Why we like this trip report:

Good report on Taycan on a longer trip, using fast chargers along the way
