The Tesla has that MASSIVE 84 KWh battery option (puts the car over 100k, but lets use that)

How long would it take a person to drive from Seattle to Boston in a Tesla? ...charging over night, of course. I'll even pretend that there is a charging station exactly where it would run out of juice. Compare to a Jetta Tdi. (with a driver who stops for 10 hrs each day)

Oh, and I chose Seattle to Boston because obviously LA to Boston would take the car thru some very hot (brutal to the Tesla efficiency) States.
