5 Essentials for Your Super-Long Car Commute

Your new gig’s a mega-commute from chez vous, and self-driving cars are a few years off. Here are some friends to keep you company.

1. Chevy Bolt

You suffer through your commute, but the planet shouldn’t. Chevy’s all-electric Bolt offers an EPA-rated range of 238 miles per charge. It’s long on comfort too: acres of legroom and headroom, a boss infotainment system, even a spot to plunk your phone that isn’t the cup holder. | $37,495

2. Waylens Horizon Dashcam

Don’t just watch replays of your road adventures, enhance them. The Waylens overlays data like g forces and speed onto 1080p video, so your commute looks more like a day at the track. Hit the big-ass button that mounts on the steering wheel to save 30-second clips; your highlight reel will be ready before you reach your driveway. | $500

3. Navdy Head-Up Display

Luxury cars have displays that pro­ject info like speed and turn-by-turn navigation right into your line of sight. Navdy’s dashboard-mounted rig brings that tech to your well-used whip. Sync your phone and make your ’97 Corolla feel like a ’17 S-Class. | $4991

4. Persol PO8649S Sunglasses

You may hit the road before dawn, but once the sun comes up, don’t let it be a pain in the eyes. Enjoy the view in Persol’s latest interpretation of the iconic 649 model. It has an updated bridge to suit your nose and engraved temple tips that feel as smooth as a traffic-free morning. Available with several types of lenses, these sunnies are best paired with polarized glass to cut down on glare. | $365

5. Miir Insulated Pint Cup

What good is coffee if it isn’t hot hot hot? Trust Miir’s double-walled mug to keep your pint of java just the way you need it. The locking lid is transparent, protecting you from burns by showing you when the scorching brew is about to reach your tongue. | $22
