Will we be able to recharge, use the restroom, get a coffee and a death dog with mustard in 15 to 20 minutes? I don't think so!

My biggest concerns about electric vehicles are durability and distance between charges. Gas or diesel vehicles last well over 150,000 miles with very little maintenance involved. Plus we can go over 400 miles between fill ups in the average vehicle, towing not necessarily included, some many more (cars).

By 2035 I will be 85, so probably not driving much at that point.

My question is 2 parts - How is the durability of an electric vehicle and what is the farthest you can go between charging??????
My daughter just purchased an extended mileage Tesla (332 miles), as far as durability, we will see.

I don’t know if any of the big 3 have all electric vehicles on the road right now. Seems most are hybrid and run on gas and electric. I rode in one of my friends Chevy hybrid a few months ago. It ran great and fast. Not sure on the fuel mileage. I can’t imagine a all electric dually that would be able to pull a big trailer for any long mile trips. I think it’s a pipe dream to be able to be no gas vehicles in 14 years. The technology is not good enough yet. I don’t even have a battery golf cart because of the charging and battery life.

My son has one. Had it a couple years now. He was over to the house last summer in it and brother John wouldn't even take a ride in it ! LOL ..In two years he has not spent a dime on fuel. Drives an hour each way to work. Plugs it into his garage charger when he gets home from work. Tells me he did not notice any change in his electric bill. So far, its never had to return to the dealer. Acceleration is amazing. I'm guessing, it's gotta be a 13 second car. Its so quiet inside its strange.

I was at the local track with my son in law. One of his friends was there running a Tesla SUV. It was running low 7’s in the 1/8th. I think he said the price for it was near 100k

Thanks Eddie for the info. My kids live in Boise, Idaho so the trip is just about 500 miles. I would have to stop and re-charge somewhere along the way - not practical. I assume the re-charge would take a few hours. I'll stick to a gas vehicle for now, thank you.

From Tesla site.

Public Charging
When away from home, Tesla Superchargers and Destination Charging networks have you covered. You can locate Tesla charging stations through your touchscreen, via navigation and on the Tesla Find Us map.

Supercharger stations are placed on well-traveled routes and dense urban centers, allowing your car to charge to 80% in about 30 minutes. Located near helpful amenities like coffee shops and travel plazas, Superchargers are designed to charge quickly and get you back on the road.

Tesla’s Destination Charging network allows you to charge at thousands of convenient charging locations like local shopping centers, parking garages, hotels, restaurants and other hospitality locations.

Find a Destination Charger or Supercharger near you.

If you plan on using chargers outside of the Tesla Network, keep the included J-1772 adapter in your car to expand your charging options.

Bobby, as far as I know we don't have one in OHIO. Maybe I'm wrong but I've never heard one mentioned. When he bought his he received free Supercharging credits worth 400 kWh (equivalent to 1,000 miles) annually on the anniversary of the vehicle’s delivery. It used to cost him around 15 bucks to fill his up at one of those charging stations.. I guess it depends on the State you live in how much they charge for the KWH rate.
