Re: What Other EV's Have You Driven?

We have just bought this week our first I-MiEV but have previously driven a 1976 Enfield 8000 - restoring one too Congrats, and welcome to the club. I've obviously been getting a lot of seat time in the Model 3, now that I own the first Model 3 I've ever driven. I really haven't had any experience ...

Re: i-MiEV Repair around Seattle

Thought this interesting, iMiev battery upgrade from Australia and they’re looking for partners: https://youtu.be/Wy2vFrsMrPQ Very interesting, and great to see 3rd party development and expansion for i-MiEVs. Doubling the range is a considerable boost to the car's usability for many people. I thin...

Re: 12v Battery - All You Ever Wanted To Know

So, Question 1: Is there any more info on this battery-draining quirk? Question 2: I've seen some posts here about the relatively easy and longer life i-MiEV 12V batteries have. In my ICE cars, 5 years was pretty much the limit (likely imposed by the need to start an ICE in Boston winter weather). ...

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

I stopped by my local dealer this morning to see where I’m at on the list. Looks like I’ll have a good wait. He said check in a few weeks. I’m anticipating Spring at the earliest, which is fine as I’m not in a big hurry for the new packs. While I was there, FedEx showed up with two new packs, so rep...

Re: How to add Tesla's OBC to imiev?

Buried on this forum are results from testing different charging methods. If the car is aware of AC charging in progress, it has a limit somewhere around 5 kW, and if the battery receives more than that, the car shuts down charging. To make faster charge rates work, the car either has to be kept in ...

Re: Free used rear Dunlop Enasaves

Previous posts peg him in Seattle. I have enough old tires floating around as is. I’ll pass.

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

Apparently, the owner of the 2020 Bolt that burned is auctioning off the keys and owners manual.

Re: 2012 SE Purchased

You should be able to make an account on Mitsubishi’s website, add your car, and get complete history and recall information. I’d also check with your local dealer to see if floor mats can be ordered. Congratulations. At 38 Ah, that battery was likely replaced at some point, but that just means a yo...

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

It sounds like new packs are arriving. As I suspected, when GM says “Module”, they mean the entire battery pack. I saw two reports on chevybolt.org of pack replacements. Not that I want to rush into a new pack, but I think I might stop by my local dealer and see what the timeline is.

Re: Either my car or my home charge point is playing up... which one?

Koorz does this on occasion when I charge from level 2 (240 volts) at work. Can’t figure it out. Charges perfectly from level 1 (120 volts). Took it to the dealer when it first happened but they said everything’s good. I suspect something with the charger is going out of spec and shutting down. It d...
