Re: 3-Wheel Battery-Electric Vehicles

A little more info on the Morgan EV3 from the Geneva Motor Show:

It would be interesting to find out what changes are made after the 10 "test" customers have had the car for a while.

Re: 3-Wheel Battery-Electric Vehicles

Oh, is that Morgan EV3 tugging at our nostalgia heartstrings! Talk about targeted upscale marketing... Pretty sure I'm not in the target market - they're only making 19 of them, and that sounds like it will be very spendy. I do like the extra headlight in the nose/grill. I keep checking the factory...

Re: 3-Wheel Battery-Electric Vehicles

Still have to wonder what % of max power can be regenerated by a rear-wheel-drive three-wheeler, without locking up the rear wheel as weight is transferred forward. Our i-miEV sports an amazing 125A/155A ≈ 80%. As more and more of us get exposed to high regen, going 'back' to a low-regen environmen...

Re: 3-Wheel Battery-Electric Vehicles

Actually - if I could get a Morgan three wheeler ;-) http://www.maxim.com/rides/morgan-ev3-three-wheel-beauty-2016-3 They do a "lite" version of the EV3 - cheaper, slower, but probably much cheaper to ship from Malvern to where you are ;-) https://www.morgan-motor.co.uk/mmc/shop/index.php...

Re: Our Gas Free Miles Travelled

My iOn is 3 3/4 years old, and now has 25,551 miles on the clock, and is still serving us very well.
It's coping with the extra weight of a 4th passenger without a problem (a dog in the boot).

Re: heating with charging cable connected?

If you had a diesel heater installed , and got the fan running, you could get the cabin warmed up or I could just run an extension lead outside and chuck a 3Kw domestic fan heater in there for a while. My EVSE has to have its own separate circuit from the distribution box (that's what the wiring re...

Re: heating with charging cable connected?

The results of my test yesterday evening - I was wrong - the blowers work, but no A/C or heat :-( I also found that I couldn't lock the door while the car was switched on and plugged into my charger. I just realised I only tried the remote lock button on the main keyfob to lock the doors (I had the ...

Re: heating with charging cable connected?

That would be great if the UK models did, as the US ones certainly don't (the fan will run, even the A/C light will come on, but neither heater or compressor will run). The heated seats works, though. I will check this again this evening, but it definitely seemed to warm the car and clear the winds...

Re: heating with charging cable connected?

Hello Don, Thanks for your answer. Unfortunately we don't have a remote. The car is from 2011. Probably they didn't have it back then. I hoped, I could just heatup the car by inserting the key and turn it to the acc. position and switch the heating on, but that doesn't seem to work. I found very re...

Re: Chevy Bolt production version

I don't know, 7,500 miles to rotate the tires seems perfectly reasonable to me and not pandering to the dealers ;) To me, tyre rotation seems to be a USA thing - never heard of that happening with any car I have had serviced in the UK - is it done just to even out the wear on the tyres so they all ...
