Re: "Secret Box"

Scary looking things - are they between the bulkhead and the outer part of the dashboard etc. ?

They'd have to flip the whole car, not just the dash, otherwise steering left would make the car go right ;-)

I think I will try and find a PDF of the Mitsubishi manual - my Peugeot manual makes no mention of this, nor of the cubby under the steering wheel - heaven knows what else I am missing info on ;-)

"Secret Box"

A user on the SpeakEV forum (a mainly UK based general EV forum) has posted about a secret compartment in the iMiev dashboard. If you put your hand into the recess above the glovebox and feel the top, you should find an oval opening, which you can put your fingers in to pull down a flap. It is prese...

Re: 3-Wheel Battery-Electric Vehicles

A little more info on the Morgan EV3 from the Geneva Motor Show:

It would be interesting to find out what changes are made after the 10 "test" customers have had the car for a while.

Re: 3-Wheel Battery-Electric Vehicles

Oh, is that Morgan EV3 tugging at our nostalgia heartstrings! Talk about targeted upscale marketing... Pretty sure I'm not in the target market - they're only making 19 of them, and that sounds like it will be very spendy. I do like the extra headlight in the nose/grill. I keep checking the factory...

Re: 3-Wheel Battery-Electric Vehicles

Still have to wonder what % of max power can be regenerated by a rear-wheel-drive three-wheeler, without locking up the rear wheel as weight is transferred forward. Our i-miEV sports an amazing 125A/155A ≈ 80%. As more and more of us get exposed to high regen, going 'back' to a low-regen environmen...

Re: 3-Wheel Battery-Electric Vehicles

Actually - if I could get a Morgan three wheeler ;-) http://www.maxim.com/rides/morgan-ev3-three-wheel-beauty-2016-3 They do a "lite" version of the EV3 - cheaper, slower, but probably much cheaper to ship from Malvern to where you are ;-) https://www.morgan-motor.co.uk/mmc/shop/index.php...

Re: Our Gas Free Miles Travelled

My iOn is 3 3/4 years old, and now has 25,551 miles on the clock, and is still serving us very well.
It's coping with the extra weight of a 4th passenger without a problem (a dog in the boot).
