Re: Future battery 16KWH replacement

If one only owns one vehicle, a large pack is ideal. Personally, My imiev takes me to the office daily, is taken with us on camping trips, and very often is used to haul 8' long construction materials. Many pick-up trucks can't do that! Tesla has called me several times, and my response has always b...

Re: Bosch Power Xpress EVSE

I also purchased a SPX Power Xpress about 5 years ago for my 2012 iMIEV. It has worked great for that period of time. A couple of months ago I purchased a low mileage 2014 iMIEV and went to charge the new car with my Bosch SPX Power Xpress. To my surprise the SPX Power Xpress wouldn't connect and ju...

Reduced Tax credit/changes this year?

When I was recently searching for another Mitsubishi i-MIEV, I looked at new and used cars. A used 2014, with low mileage is what I ended up buying, but there were some attractive deals on new ones too. I was surprised when I reviewed the changes to the EV tax credit that must have taken place this ...

Re: Search issues and aftermarket wheels

I recently purchased a "like new" 2014 with very low mileage, but it didn't have the standard OEM aluminum wheels. After doing some basic research, I realized the stock Toyota MR2 Spyder wheels that I had sitting around, could work with the right combination of front wheel adapter and tire...

Re: Purchased today, over the week-end :)

Made a deal on a blue 2014 last week and drove 2200 miles over the week-end to pick it up, in Florida. It was well worth the trip, as the car is a "cream-puff". It appears to hardly have been used at all. It was an early 2014 that didn't arrive with the cast aluminum wheels. If anyone has ...

Re: IMIEV chassis pictures, with body removed?

I currently haul my 2012 MIEV, in my toy hauler, for long trips. My main goal is to keep the vehicle "street legal" but reduce the weight. I love the idea of an electric off road vehicle or ATV, but these things are way too expensive. In some states, the doors can be removed, as long as th...

IMIEV chassis pictures, with body removed?

With the used IMIEV prices falling to $6K or less, I've been considering buying another one for a daily driver and making a project car out of my 2012 ES. I'd like to remove the body and build a tube frame car that I can take with me on trips in my toy hauler. I've only been able to find a low res p...

Re: Solutions for windshield fogging in cold weather?

During the first (3) years of iMIEV ownership, i tried many things to keep the window defrosted as I was at the limit of range, for my daily commute. Running the heat/defroster was simply not an option. The building owner of our firm wouldn't allow outdoor receptacles to be installed and the city th...
