Re: The end of an era!

Thanks, guys! I'm not decided on my next car just yet. I'll leave that till after Christmas. Can't wait to get back home to NZ, escaping the winter for a summer holiday.

The end of an era!

After years of chaotic adventures in my little iMiEV clone, I parted company with the jellybean. :cry: https://youtu.be/FogonMBZpPU The car has gone on to a new, loving electric car home. I will miss it, and the great community who joined me on my many electric car journeys and crazy modifications. ...

I installed a kitchen in my electric car

I'm telling myself it was because camping season is approaching, but in reality I installed a kitchen in the car because no one else has done anything like it before! :D Here's a video of my bizarre creation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFhVLbQPpcI It has a fridge, cooker, a sink, and running wa...

Re: Video: Summer maintenance (hah) and racing a train across the country.

Thank you both for the kind words. I don't know how my wife puts up with me. :D

True, the iMiEV isn't really suited to long distance driving but I love a challenge and the car performed perfectly. That traffic though... Sheesh!

Video: Summer maintenance (hah) and racing a train across the country.

Hello, fellow iMiEV (and fauxMiEV) drivers! It's that time again: I've churned out another "Kiwi EV" video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8l4WzUqThd4 In this new video I carry out summer maintenance (hah), ride my electric bike and then race a train across the country. :-) I had a lot of...

Highway cruising

The speed limit here in Slovakia is 130 km/h. The speed limiter on the car is 136 km/h. It's destiny... https://www.facebook.com/KiwiEVadventures/videos/1503534403023224/ :D It was also very satisfying overtaking car after car with them seeing "Electric vehicle" as the red blur scuttled al...

Re: Kiwi in Slovakia

Malcolm, that's the nicest thing I've read in a long time. Thank you. I'm really glad the videos have been entertaining and useful for you. I still don't know why I do them. I make no money out of them, and I couldn't make them regularly enough to make any money off them, so they're just a "cre...

Re: Kiwi in Slovakia

You're very kind, thank you!

My wife is a saint... most of the time. I think her patience ran out a little on the last trip skiing however. :D

Re: Future battery replacement

My battery's fine, but I got wondering whether a swap-out with new cells would be cheaper than an entire battery replacement in the future. So, out of sheer curiosity, I emailed Lithium Energy Japan last week for a price on buying 100 brand new LEV50 cells. I expected to hit a brick wall but you nev...

Re: Kiwi in Slovakia

Sorry Joe, I completely ignored your question. My apologies. To answer your question, yes I was a little overly conservative as I was scared! One of the biggest problems with driving at reduced speed (90km/h or under) is that the trucks in Slovakia get up very close behind you at flash their lights ...
