Re: terms of baterry warranty

My 2012 UK IMIEV came with a 4 year traction battery warranty, and unless this has changed (which would be news to me as I enquired last April), then there is no 10 year traction battery warranty by Mitsubishi in Europe... or if it does exist, it's not all EU markets. It is North America that gets t...

Re: Failed traction battery. How many weeks does Mitsubishi make you wait?

All those tax breaks don't come free... congestion tax? Why so many people? Maybe if the UK leaves the Euro and the rest of the countries in Europe follow suit there wouldn't be a need forcing people to go electric through taxation. The current technology should not be forced on anyone. The battery...

Re: Failed traction battery. How many weeks does Mitsubishi make you wait?

^ Re the PHEV fail: If you live in a country that actually has a progressive taxation system to promote green vehicles, I would say his argument might be quite different. That PHEVs and BEVs get decent government grants, annual personal tax and annual business tax relief makes the PHEV pay for itsel...

Re: Failed traction battery. How many weeks does Mitsubishi make you wait?

Do the battery warranty terms state 'vehicle not covered if modified in any way' - or words to that effect?

This is a common wriggle-out clause.

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 ...

Re: EV prices in the next 3 years.

Naturally, we consider the i-MiEV far superior to the Smart, if for no other reason than because its interior is voluminous and thus it makes a great workhorse. Not to start a thread on this, but I am curious about how the two compare, in your opinion (apart from the DCQC, of course). Well one has ...

Re: Mouse in the Miev!

Get a can of air duster (or an air line) and spray all around the car... hopefully it will leave? Whether it comes back is another story, but there arent that many places to hide in there.

Re: how to remove the center ventilation unit

OK, so I managed to fix this in about 30 mins, as I can't stand anything broken - the design is a bit odd, as the two vents are clipped directly into the main dashboard moulding, rather than clip into a frame which then fits in to the dashboard - must be a design characteristic that is part of keepi...

Re: EV prices in the next 3 years.

It's likely that you spend much more than $1,000 per year on gasoline. Eh, $1000 sounds about right to me. Average driving is said to be 10,000-15,000 miles a year... let's assume 10,000 for simplicity. A typical ICE car gets 25 MPG -- that's 400 gallons/year. And the price of gasoline is hovering ...
