I am going to try it once the fast chargers are installed at hope and merritt, or maybe if i have a whole weekend free...

I believe the answer was already provided above. So long the battery temperature is around 20 C and you can keep the speed below 90 km/h at all times, you will make it. This includes the elevation gain going the right way. If you had an iOS device, try the "LEAF Energy" app.

Yes, i did read all the comments, and it looks possible. Like I said, I am either going to wait till L3 stations are installed or wait for a weekend where I can spend up to 6 hours charging at Hope, Merritt and minimum 2 hours in Abbotsford each way...

Actually, it was pretty clear. It's just that I have a reading comprehension problem. Sorry about that.

Yes, that looks to risky from Merrit to Hope. You hope to see a L3 installed along the route? How many L3's are there already existing in BC.

East of your province, I am only aware of one that's open to the public in ALL of Canada.

Why would it be risky?

He might attempt lowering speed to increase range, but on mountain highways this can lead to being tail-gated by angry SUV's and pickups.

The thing is, there is not even 110V between Hope and Merritt :) I am thinking of trying with a mobile generator just in case of an emergency, no one has done it before...

There are 13 X L3's planned however only 1 operational at the moment. 2 others have been installed but not yet operational. US is much ahead of us... I drove to Seattle last weekend and used 3 different L3's I was jealous!

Its a 2 lane highway so I can always remain on the right lane, and it is not a very busy highway...

It is risky and every single tool tells me i can not do it unless I drive 70 km/hr
