Were there any glitches with all that fancy car tech?
Yes, a couple minor ones.
Early in the drive, the driver's side door began refusing to open. Then the touch screen that controls most of the car's functions froze up. A call to Tesla got both problems fixed in a few moments.
Are there enough Superchargers to do the job?
If the job is simply to get a Tesla Model S car to go between Boston and D.C., there are, but just barely.
That 200 mile stretch between Newark, Del. and Milford, Conn., seems needlessly sweat-inducing. It also limits flexibility, reducing the system to simply a way of shuttling cars between two distant points.
Adding more Superchargers will allow drivers a little more leeway to, perhaps, take a side trip every now and then. (There actually are some really beautiful spots in New Jersey, you know.) Tesla says it's working on getting more Superchargers up and running.
Did you see any other Tesla's getting charged while you were on your trip?
Nope, but that just made us feel special.
Could you have any fun on an all-electric road trip? Sure, there were places and times when range was not really an issue.
In fact, that was the case in all but the long middle leg of the trip between Delaware and Connecticut. When range wasn't issue, I simply drove as I normally would -- kind of fast but not fast enough to get handcuffed -- and I enjoyed the car's performance.
