Re: Mouse in the Miev!

There may be less heat overall but I think it's the constant heat available at all times as the vehicle is being charged that may be tempting to rodents. I also use the remote to preheat the car very often which also generates heat at times when there's no one in or around the car to scare them away.

Any noticeable benefits of replacing bulbs with LEDs?

Hi,

I checked on Amazon and it seems like I can get all lights in my 2014 iMiev converted to LEDs. Has anyone done this and is it worth it as far as power consumption is concerned?

Re: Cold Weather and Battery Warming System

I've now been through a really cold snap with out iMiev. The temperature went down to -11F. We did not have problems keeping the iMiev warm while driving. Well, warm enough at least :) But the heater seems to be designed for temperatures above 0F. But otherwise the iMiev seemed to like the cold and ...

Mouse in the Miev!

Hi, I have had many cars parked in the same location over the years. We got our iMiev right before Christmas and today as I was coming back from taking my daughter to school a mouse ran accross the dash. I jumped of course and the mouse ran and hid. I have never had a mouse coming into any of our ca...

Re: Re-surging interest in the i-MiEV?

We got ours during an ice storm Dec 23. Dealer forgot to charge it and I didn't know how to read the instrument panel so we stopped on the freeway after 12 miles. Dealer sent a tow truck. A flying start on our iMiEV ownership. Took it home on a tow truck. Been in love since :)

Re: Re-surging interest in the i-MiEV?

I'm Norwegian but live in Massachusetts. When I'm over there there's iMiEV's everywhere. They are the electric little car perfect for going around town. When we tried to find one over here we had a very hard time. The Mitsubishi dealer here wouldn't even consider it and kept ranting about the the Mi...

Re: Cold Weather and Battery Warming System

We got our iMiEV on Dec 23 heading straight into sub zero temperatures here in Massachusetts. I'm really interested in knowing how to best deal with cold snaps like this. I've come appreciate the remote which lets me pre heat the car but wonder how that affects range and if there's other concerns wh...

Re: Car preconditioning while charging?

Thank you for answers (and title). We got our 2014 IMiEV last night so very new to it. One additional question, is the remote supposed to come with the car?

Car preconditioning while charging?

Hi,

So I've got my iMiEV home and it's charging. It's a cold morning and I want to heat it up, seats and the car itself. Can I do that while it's on the charger? If so how? Do I "start" it with the key first, or? Bear with me, I'm new to this so this may be a silly question :)

Re: Should we get a 2014?

Thank you so much. That was a great crash course in how to stay in power so to speak. We live in Massachusetts but I'm a Norwegian so I'm very used to have EVs all around me when I visit there, There's iMiEV's everywhere you turn and both my sister and brother has one. It's just that they were never...
