Re: EVSE Upgrade

Here in USA, our 240 outlets are in fact two hot out of phase 120 legs that together make 240. But in EU and UK, are all the plugs inside the house for TV, refrigerator, clocks, etc single phase with one 240 hot and a neutral plus ground? A EVSE made for a EU mitsu or leaf: is it a level 1 from a s...

Re: Best charging practices for battery longevity

I think that the charging to 12 bars is one that more should adopt - It's a shame there isnt a dial charge stop in the car, where you can preset the max charge. Just thought that that would be a good idea - the remote is not the best device out there, but I suppose it does work.

Re: Motor Warning Light Comes On Shortly After Restart With Nearly Full Charge

I normally take a pic on my smartphone now before I take a car in for service. Proof that all the lights are off!

Re: EVSE Upgrade

I wonder if the charger from a 240v market may be the best option in the US??? So, UK runs 240V AC all domestic, and Europe is essentially the same, but technically varies between 220-230V AC. Does a Leaf Type1 charger work on the IMIEV - if it does, you could, as long as your domestic sockets could...

Re: New traction battery under warranty- will that new battery have its own 10yr 100k warranty?

No - The car comes with a 10 year, 100,000 mile battery warranty. Your new battery will have a few years left and/or another 61,000 miles Don I respectfully disagree, the battery like any new part warranty, should cover from the date of installation. But this could be wrong. Any warranty is on the ...

Re: Considering a 2014

for what its worth, I'd go for the white one over the black. My parents IMIEV is black, and it always looks filthy and the richness of the black colour isn't up to prestige standards. My silver one, and other white ones around seem to be far easier to keep clean and maintain the paintwork... my 2c. ...

Re: Strong front damage C-zero. (3/4 front left)

Though it would appear that there is a fairly strong safety cell in the 'engine bay' in the front of the car, as has been said there isn't that much metal to the sides, hence the intrusion to the passenger foot-well, which is already pretty small. As has also been said, you are lucky you escaped wit...
