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).

That's a nice site, much better than the one I found last night.

I told it I had a non-Tesla (a Honda E--whatever that is. I just wanted to specify something other than Tesla.)

It said 5:30 driving time. Pretty close, it took us 6 hours including a long stop for dinner.

It also said 3 charge stops for 2:16. 2 hours & 16 minutes.
Walmart, strip mall, Walmart 59 min, 1 hr 3 min, 14 min

Walmart has bathrooms, although you'd have to walk from the outlying gas/charging station across the parking lot to the store. Most Walmarts have a Subway or something like that, for food.

Strip mall had.....sushi/Hibachi restaurant. If you wanted to walk 1/4 to 1/2 mile, BBQ place, pizza place, Mexican place. Oh, and a Harbor Freight. Wife would be just absolutely THRILLED to go potty at HF. Not!

But, see, 5 1/2 hr drive, plus 2 1/2 hr for charging. The EV extended the trip time by 50%.

I googeled, and the cheapest Tesla around here is a 2018 Model 3 with 24,000 miles, for $51,000. Dealer is "by appointment only".
A top-end Toyota Camry, new 2021, is $30,000. You can buy a lot of gas for $21,000.
