I'm on the verge of buying a lightly used 2019. One option is non-REX, one is REX (and obviously more money). I'm really tempted to save the money but don't want that choice to bite me in the butt. I'm in the Northeast US and 2 days each week my work commute is 60 miles each way. About 40 of that is highway, and the rest is surface roads. Some days I might add up to 20 miles worth of errands. The rest of the time, my commute is short, so it's a matter of figuring out whether I can make the long days work.
On paper, given the official 153 mile range, that should be fine, but paper != real world. Will I realistically be able to make the round trip without a range extender, do you think? If it helps, my long commute is to a college campus which has about a dozen chargepoints, so the option to "top up" is there, although I'd rather not have to do that routinely.
ETA: If it helps, my typical highway speed is 70-75. After a lot of tickets I've learned to just stick to that - not worth the fines to get to where I'm going maaaaaybe five minutes sooner. I'll occasionally accelerate to pass a truck or extreme slowpoke in the right lane but otherwise will pin it in that range.
