Supercharging network.

Even in this Tesla-heavy area (Seattle), a majority of non-owners don't know it exists. Those that do almost never are aware of the extent of coverage or ease of use. Explaining it is a great sales tool.

It sure has changed the way I take EV road trips over the past decade!

I meant the latter. I have been taking Tesla road trips since April 2010 (Seattle to San Diego; at that time, the nearest L2 station was 800 miles away so I used campgrounds). We didn't get to use a Supercharger until Jan 2013, and even then it was for only half of the trip.

I did have a 2003 RAV-4 EV before the Tesla, but I didn't take road trips in it. Well, I guess I took it to my Mom's, which was too far round-trip, so I would plug it in to her dryer outlet while visiting. I don't think of that as a road trip but I guess some might. Back then we used our Prius (converted to PHEV) for road trips.
