Re: Radio button ilumination

I have a UK Peugeot Ion with exactly that radio - the main radio display is bright and the buttons not lit when the lights are off, and when they are on the main display dims and the buttons light up.
So there's definitely something wrong somewhere with your radio or radio wiring :(

Re: Charging experience in the UK

Some early i-MiEV's in the UK only did mode-1 charging, and used a cable without an EVSE 'brick' - could it be that yours is one of those?

Re: UK iMiEV tyre supplier needed

I recently had a pair of rear tyres fitted by KwikFit mobile - Yokohamas I think, and it looked like other suppliers like ATS, Hi-Q, and National had them too

Re: Fully Charged

back of the envelope calculations, so most likely wildly inaccurate: Extrapolating from the recent Tesla mega battery thing installed in Australia: Dinorwig total capacity 9.1 GWh Tesla Australian mega battery total capacity 129 MWh so it would take around 70 mega battery installations to get to the...

Re: Is my battery dying ?

The car theoretically has a battery warranty until June 2019, however I'm not sure what mileage the warranty is good for - I think it may only be 60k miles, and I will be pushing close to 60k miles by then. I also don't know whether excessive degradation is covered, (say 70%) or whether only outrig...

Re: Fully Charged

Musing, as a contrast, a similar-capacity battery storage system (if enough battery cells were available) would - 1. Cost how much? 2. Consume how much surface area or volume? 3. Recurring cost, both maintenance and capital replacement? Good questions, that I would like to know the answeers to as w...

Re: iMiEV as workhorse

I've been thinking about getting a new TV, but I don't want to pay for delivery. So, I measured the available space in the car, then went around measuring boxes in Best Buy. I think I might just barely be able to fit in a 55", but it'll be tight. I recently bought a 55" LG TV, and wanted ...

Re: Riversimple and Fuel Cell Discussions

Look how tiny this car is compared to the Prius-sized Mirai - I simply can't see how that would ever gain the requisite approval in the collision safety department to go mainstream, not least because I think you need to supply 2 vehicles for crash testing (definitely 1). I think there is a very low...

i-MiEV in film trailer

An i-MiEV (though to be honest the bonnet badge looks like the one on my Peugeot iOn) can be spotted 7 seconds into this film trailer (for "Ready Player One"), along with a Renault Twizy, and a (non-EV) Nissan Cube:
