Lots of people have road tripped their Model S from LA to NYC. For free.
It's not fast enough because the general public is used to 5 minutes for the same range or more. I'm just saying that's what I hear from people I talk to who don't think the same way as someone on this website. They don't care about gas mileage if they're getting close to EPA ratings and they aren't worried about emissions. All they see is the required charge time I think about worse case scenarios.
Aiming for 50 MPG from an automatic.
See how I'm doing here, My Build Thread
