So still a challenge, but I do plan to give them a call tomorrow. I suppose I could always arrange for an expensive tow if necessary.
EV trip planner says you don't make it, without a charge stop. Uses 26 kWh going, and you don't have 26 kWh. On a warm day, not in winter. Don't even think about trying this in winter.
Greenrace says you don't make it there. You might make it back, if you can drive at 40 km per hour.
1000 meters of climb, then another 1000+ meters of short up and downs.
I don't fully trust both of these tools out of the box, but for a sanity test they do the job.
OK, with a midpoint charge.
Best bet for a charging stop that I could find is is "Montana RV Park" in Carcross. Looks like they probably have TT30 plugs, just looking at the wires connecting trailers on Google Maps streetview. Even this is scary getting to, EV trip planner suggests you need 17 kW to get here from Skagway. However, if you get there, and get a full charge in Whitehorse... Opps, dealer doesn't seem to have a charging station handy... But there are several RV parks with 30 Amp service (probably TT30).
TT30 can support 24 Amp 120V. About two and a half faster than the 12 Amp 120V cable that comes with the car. Maybe 9 to 10 miles of range per hour of charging, or 2.4 kWh or so. But you need a special TT30 adapter, and you need a portable 24 Amp or more capable charger that will support 120V at that current.
So at best case, drive to Carcross, charge for 7 hours, drive to Whitehorse, get the work done, charge for 4 hours at one of several RV parks, drive to Carcross, charge for 4 hours, arrive home with half a battery. Adventure!!
Doesn't leave much margin, not to mention lack of alternatives. Oh, and how busy/fast is the traffic? I'm not at all sure if I believe the speed estimates in EV trip planner. Seems slower than I would expect.
