Check out https://abetterrouteplanner.com/ for fairly accurate numbers. I told it I have a 2021 Tesla Model 3 Long Range with 18" wheels (which I don't).

It routed a 507 mile trip with three supercharger stops of 17, 13, and 16 minutes. Looks to me like it was figuring on about 72mph on I10. Currently, the Tesla nav system takes into account the wind and temperature on the route, as well as lots of other information to determine your likely efficiency. I'm not sure what this site takes into consideration.

Regardless, you arrive in much better condition than if you powered through the trip in an ICE vehicle. But if you are trying for the shortest possible trip time, the ICE will win by that measure.

If you had paid attention upthread, it started with a comment about a possible $12,500 tax credit for EVs.

Last I saw they were talking about making it a refundable tax credit, in which case it's just a rebate on your purchase and really has little to do with taxes. But we'll see what we see if it happens.
