Re: Re-Imagined: Mitsubishi i-MiEV Rendered As a Tiny Nissan EV

Those comments are all over the place :lol: . Zephod, I've come to really like my Chevy Bolt. My theory behind its design is that Chevy wanted to quietly sabotage their EV, so they bought an i-MiEV and copied it, thinking that the worst selling EV in the US would be a good start. Turns out, if there...

Re: Strange things with quick charging

The blower will run pretty much during any DCQC better than 15 kW. A/C will kick on when cells get warm (can't remember the temperature threshold, but a single cell hitting it will trigger the A/C). On mine, they usually shut off at 67%, sometimes toggling on/off a few times before fully shutting of...

Re: Global Warming's Terrifying New Math

To meet these claims, new charge connectors would need to be developed. I calculated that a true near-300 mile range, highway driving, would require at least a 75 kWh battery in a Chevy Bolt. To dump 75 kWh in 5 minutes, a 900 kW charge rate is required, which is 2,400 amps at 375 volts. Current 50 ...

Re: Best charging practices

My commute is 23 miles, which usually leaves me with around 11 bars (9-10 in the winter, usually 12 in the summer). I fully charge every night when I'm driving the i-MiEV the next day. Since you have level 2 charging at work, giving the car 2 hours of charging per day ought to keep it from fully cha...

Re: Pics: New '17/18 interior, 2DIN and paddles (!)

How can I get one? 8-) A/C during charging, nicer looking interior, and regen paddles were all on my wish list.

Re: Tire shop hillarity

I know someone that bought an I-MiEV recently and was complaining about really bad range. When I first saw it, I checked battery capacity, and while it was on the lower end, it wasn't bad enough to cause such a low range (struggling to get 50 miles in the city). Chalking it up to being stiff from no...

Re: Problem With Putting Car Into Park

I've had mine not quite latch all the way into Park a few times. Pushing the lever to the right locked it in.

Re: Is my battery dying ?

Shipping Yuasa batteries by air? That ought to go over well :lol: ;) (Dreamliner incident?). In all seriousness, though. DBMandrake, per your signature, your car is a 2011. When most of us here in the States bought our cars, there was an addition to the owners manual after it was printed in the form...

Re: Investigation - fast 12v depletion while stored

Been a while. I went to get my flash drive with music out of the I-MiEV. The car's been sitting since April 3. I went out to the car, it unlocked and started just like normal. I started it up and let the battery charge up a bit. Tonight, I plan to go out, unlock the car, open the door, close the doo...

Re: How to shift gears

The US I-MiEV most definitely goes to full power in all 3 drive modes. ECO extends the pedal travel required to go full power by roughly twice that of Drive or Brake. My guesses on why there are two sensors are either to facilitate the different drive modes (which is easily done in software) or, mor...
