I am not sure why some users here try to convince me about taking a Tesla for long trips without proving a single point wherein the Tesla has more benefits for me than my other highway vehicles that also offer luxury trip experience. I only see benefits for in-town daily drive but zero benefits in the switch relatively for highway. Maybe if I did not have a highway drive car, and my highway was a Pilot or Highlander, then yeah, but not when the highway vehicle is a true high-end vehicle that has nearly 10-15 options that Tesla don't offer. I don't care about what is spinning the wheels, I care less, for highway use it is all about a comfortable commuting and luxury seating feeling on highway.
If it's all about autonomous driving, things have changed since 2022. Both BMW and Mbenz offer true highway full hands-free driving (seems like most people here don't recognize how good other brands had gotten? Don't tell me about your former 2020 vehicle, am taking 2022 and after. Check the new i7 or 7-series or S-class full hands-free highway driving system; even GM offers true hands-free now without phantom braking) . My 8 hours trip truly takes LESS than 5 min of my special attention time where I need to take actions. On highway, it is 100% hands-free. Time has passed and things changed since last year, This is no longer a Tesla only feature. There is no reason whatsoever for me to leave my premium highway trips drive for a Tesla that don't even offer the basics needed for long trips such as no cooling seats, no high-end and/or 3D speakers, no ambient air packages, no rear seat entertainments, no true adaptive "euro-spec like" headlights, no roomy SUV option, no soft ride compared to DHP or MBC, NO AM SORRY. We can argue that we don't need them, but why on earth would I leave them behind for a car that gives me nothing in return other than 1-2 hours of additional charge time!??? I don't see the benefits beyond being a replacement of our current in-town daily drive and most replies here confirm the same. There isn't a single strong argument as to why (for my specific use) I should consider it as a replacement for highway trips, but yes it is good for in-town daily drive.
