Damaged i MiEV for sale...repair or use for conversion

We retained the ownership of my wife's i MiEV after it was hit last yea, intending to use the parts for a conversion. Initial plans were to convert a 1963 Holden EJ, but finding a non rusty one at a reasonable price was proving hard... Next idea was a W168 Mercedes A Class... Sadly, life has got in ...

Re: Australian and New Zealand based i-Miev Owners.

I was stationary as was the car behind me. 4x4 behind that hit the row of stopped cars at around 60 kmh pushing the car behind into me and me into the car in front. A Jeep then hit the Nissan 4x4 to make it a 5 car pile up. No airbags went off, chassis rail bent, quarter panel, boot floor, tailgate,...

Re: Let the Hacking Begin

Looks like I will be getting to "hack" an imiev shortly...
Seems like we will be cutting a deal with insurance that means we retain the wreck, and the plan is to view it as a gift wrapped EV conversion kit.

Re: Head Rest

I've been in an imiev crash myself now....
Rear ended while stopped at a red light.
Got a bit of whiplash from it but not too bad.

Now I get to find out how hard it is to use imiev salvaged parts in a conversion....

Re: Australian and New Zealand based i-Miev Owners.

I bought a 2010 in late 2013, my wife bought a 2012 in January 2014. I have done over 20,000 km on mine, my wife did over 15,000 on hers before it was squeezed in a five car pile up.... We are working on a deal where we keep the wreck, and the plan is to swap the entire drivetrain into an EJ Holden....
