Re: Global Warming's Terrifying New Math

I am not sure I totally agree that the battery is 50% of the cost of the car any more. The cost of batteries have been going down a lot lately and battery manufactures are investing big in new production. In fact, we will see 12 new giga factories in the world like the one in Nevada being build by T...

Re: Global Warming's Terrifying New Math

New research says we have five years before global temperature increase of 1.5 degrees C is unstoppable. That assumes zero increase of Co2 over said period.

Are we ready for 2 billion climate refugees let alone the couple of million Syrians ? And the world is still asleep at the wheel.

Re: Evgo network?

I believe there is a business model for DCQC systems. But you need to connect with other companies like Burger joints and fast food. What I would recommend is that these fast food sell their $25 dollar gift card and with this card you get a free charge. Think about it, you are running low of charge ...

The oil companies can say all they want. They may even slow the conversion to EV down a little but you just can not change the math.

Re: Question about a fault and the aux battery

Cometboy When I went through the battery replacement adventure two years ago, I had the MCU warning light come on (amber car with I). It makes sense that you would get this error if one of the cells is out of voltage range of (2.75v to 4.1 v). If you noticed that this happened mostly when the car wa...

Re: service at 24 month..how much should it cost?

Been driving the car for 3 1/2 years (54,000 km) and needed to replace the windshield wiper (left side) today. The only other out of pocket maintenance was the windshield wiper (right side) done last year. I guess I do not need to send any Christmas cards to my mechanic. :D

Re: Winter Driving – What’s Your Coldest iMiEV Excursion.

I don't know about anyone else but I have driven here in frosty Sudbury Ontario Canada at -37 C. Was only able to drive just less than 60 km before turtle mode. Thankfully I was just around the corner from my house. Feet were frozen and the windshield was hard to keep clear. Don't like doing it but ...
