I try to take the family up to ride once a week during the ski season and my local hill is about 100 miles away. I know the AWD/ER option should get me there and back on paper, but I am wondering about lugging my equipment. That frunk looks perfect for dumping our boots into, but I would need to throw my boards and skis into the top box. First off, do we think there will be a rack option for the Mach E? Then if there is, how much would that cut down on range? Does anyone with EV experience have any input? Is a 200 mile round trip out of the question with a rack? Is it a 20% reduction in efficiency. A 50% reduction? Our Odyssey is our current snow mobile and that will continue to be our ICE option. Any input would be appreciated.

I made a trip just short of 100 miles with a 17' kayak on top of the MachE on foam pads, got 3.2 miles/kw vs 3.5 miles/kw for the 700 miles I have done so far, so at most a 10% drop. This trip also had more highway driving than my usual.
