When I leased my 2017 Nissan Leaf, I figured that for longer trips, I would rent a car and would still come out ahead in terms of money because of the good deal I got on the Leaf and the fact that I don’t take many long trips (several new EV models have longer range).
As I planned to visit my friend in Lake Tahoe, I thought this would a time I’d need to rent a car. But then I looked at my handy-dandy charging app and saw that there are quite a few DC fast chargers along Highway 80. It turns out that there’s a charging network called Drive the Arc which has placed many DC Fast chargers between Monterey and Lake Tahoe. “Awesome”, I thought, “I’ll drive my Leaf to Tahoe.”
