Yeah, for sure West Texas isn’t California. (What is it with Congressman Nehls wanting to take charging stations out of the federal infrastructure bill?)
You clearly have thought this through and reached a reasonable conclusion. Were I to do a trip like this in my Tesla or my (theoretical) 400 mile Aptera, I’d find a hotel with overnight charging and do enough Fast DC charging to get there and to my final destination on day 2. (Actually, in our elder years, we’d probably split this into 3 days, but I know that’s not reasonable for everyone.)
But, I can see the decision for a 600 mile Aptera too. I just think dragging along 400 lbs of battery 365 days a year to avoid a few charging stops on a few days is wasteful (purchase price and operating cost).
