It's slightly closer than Victorville. I've been on a few sites that say the cars range won't make it due to the mountains. I have seen that several have made it no problem. My worry is on the way back. Has anyone made it with a full charge from Vegas to Victorville??? Their is plenty of places to charge at the hotels in Vegas so I'm thinking I can have a full charge at least above 90% for sure. Any tips or advice would be appreciated. (I usually get above average gas mileage in all my cars so I don't expect to do to bad)
Abe, check out News Coulomb's video on youtube.com. He's done this trip from Rancho Cucamonga (sp).
There are several estimators you can use, including Chevy's app--assuming it's working when you load it.
PlugShare is your friend. Use it.
There are a number of trip reports on this forum and on its companion forum about trips of this length.
