The Pacific Coast Highway runs through California, Oregon and Washington. The experts at InsureMy Trip chose this as the top pick for the best road trip for your electric car for a few reasons. PCH has the most chargers per stop and the second highest number of Level 3 chargers per stop. Other factors are the “attractions and experiences” along the route, which Forbes says earned 4.48 stars out of 5. There are restaurants, scenic views, state parks, and everything else you need for a road trip.
