So I got my 2015 Model S 60 about four and a half months ago and I must admit that I had a little trepidation and range anxiety as I made the purchase because this is my only car. I don’t have an option to take my ‘other’ car if I need to make a longer trip, but I spent some time before I made the purchase and realized that 99% of my normal every day driving should be will within the range of the car and I knew that the superchargers could help with longer trips. In the time I’ve owned the car I haven’t really had any range issues at all, save for one minor scare when I discovered as I was leaving the house that I had forgotten to plug the car in overnight. But even in that case I was able to get enough of a charge in the time I had to go where I needed to without changing my plans at all. I even took a 900 mile road trip down to the Florida keys a few weeks ago and that went really well also. However, I did have a brief a twinge of range anxiety tonight. I just found out that I’m going to need to take my kids to their football game this Saturday, which is 81 miles from my house. This will be the farthest day trip that I’ve done with the car and I was a bit concerned about making it there and back on one charge (especially considering that I’ll need to make stops for food on the way as well). However, I took a little time to analyze the trip and punched it into the GPS in the car and with the 90% charge that the car has right now it’s saying that I can make it there and back with 5% remaining. If I do a 100% charge before I go I feel like I should have no problem making it there and back even with a couple of brief food stops. But even better, I discovered that near the destination there is a supercharger that’s only about 12 minutes out of my way. So I can either just do my normal 90% charge and plan to hit the super charger on the way there or the way back or still do a 100% charge and evaluate where I am when it’s time to leave and hit the supercharger if I need to. Either way Tesla has made this trip possible for me and my only car without any range anxiety. There’s no way it would be this easy (and anxiety free) in a leaf or a bolt or any other electric vehicle without the range and supercharger network.
