B-mode for regular driving

Apparently some people have been informed to not use B-mode as their regular driving mode. As an experienced driver of electric vehicles I have always used the regenerative braking as my primary means of slowing down and no other manufacturer (to my knowledge) has warned against doing this.

Re: Fun with Data

Thanks for all the great information. I will need a level 2 charger primarily because I live about 20 miles outside of NYC and I swing dance regularly. I make that trip at night, then only have about 6 hours of charge time before I head off to work the next day. No charging at work (yet...) means I ...

Re: New owner near NYC

Thanks for the welcome! I'm looking forward to seeing more charging stations in NYC, and will probably get one for my garage soon, too. Let me know if there are any meetups or events. I love sharing info about electric vehicles.

New owner near NYC

Hello! Today I picked up my Raspberry iMIEV ES from Bell Mitsubishi. I live in Montclair, NJ just outside of NYC but plan to drive into the city frequently (34 mile roundtrip). So far I have put 8,500+ miles on electric motorcycles and it is exciting to finally be able to afford an electric car! My ...
