Tesla owner Simon Wong talked about their trip across the US on an electric car. Together with his son, they made a 28-day trip.

During the trip, they managed to visit four US regions. According to the driver, the scary stories about Tesla failures are not true, businessinsider.nl reports.

"How can they have such problems when I was driving on the Trans-Canada Highway in the middle of the desert?" Wong asks.

The motorist confirmed that the Tesla Model Y can be the perfect car for cross-country adventures. He and his son drove 12,000 miles over the summer.

"We said we needed to go to four places: San Diego, Key West, Maine, and Seattle," Wong said.

Wong clarified that last year he traveled with a different Model 3, but this year was the first time he spent the night in the car.

According to him, the Tesla computer, a navigation system that helped them calculate how far they could drive, helped them on the road.

According to the author, they usually drove 400 to 600 miles a day, stopping for 15-minute breaks to recharge during the day.

Most often, they charged the car at night when they stopped for the night. They often found free public chargers and showered at truck stops.

According to the travelers, the Tesla electric car has heating, interior lighting, and even an infotainment system with minimal battery consumption.

According to Wong, this helped save a lot of time.

"We didn't have to drag our luggage to the hotel every night, unpack it, and then pack it again," he said.

During the Tesla trip, about $750 was spent on charging the electric car. For this amount, the driver said, he would have driven 12,000 miles in a gasoline car and spent about twice as much. According to an online fuel calculator, at a fuel price of about $3.75 per gallon, the trip would cost about $1,500 for a car that gets 30 miles per gallon.
