Re: i-bargains

As to used Leafi, there are more than just a handful on the Phoenix craigslist and listed at Phoenix dealer sites around the $10k mark, but they have on average 30,000 miles or so. I saw one at $8,500 or so with 41k miles. Lease returns I imagine. Prices and mileage are probably typical of markets ...

Re: i-bargains

Odd that leafs are cheaper than Miev's.

Missed out on a $4500 2011 leaf :0 Still had the battery warranty even.

Re: Search issues and aftermarket wheels

Too bad you can't put the Honda Insight re92 size all the way around.

Nothing like the worlds most efficient tire.

Re: Chrysler TEV minivan

There is only one guy who can fix the stock electronics, I would recommend tossing the stock bms, charger and motor controller. Next if memory serves that is a rare HV SEPEX motor not Ac. (And yes I have thought of buying a nife powered tevvan too but the things usually need the stock control boards...

Re: Chevy Bolt production version

Not according to their website: Our most affordable car yet, Model 3 achieves 215 miles of range per charge while starting at only $35,000 before incentives. The uncertainty with the Model 3 is if it will qualify for the full Federal EV incentive, as Tesla is closing in on the 200,000 vehicle thres...

Re: Chevy Bolt production version

There seems to be a lot of mis information in this thread but mainly about the model 3 not the bolt. 1. The model 3 will not be cheaper even in base form than a base bolt and it won't include supercharging in the price (typical tesla after tax break misconception) 2. Supercharging is not included in...

Re: Range Extending the IMIEV yet again

Next... On my volt it was more like 5 miles, at low speeds (25mph),
so I suppose it depends on the DOD your 16kw pack actually allows and the efficiency your DC DC provides.

Re: Range Extending the IMIEV yet again

Does this mean by adding a 40Ah standard lead acid car battery in parallel with the stock 12V i-miEV battery that range will be extended by 1/2 kWh (12V X 40 Ah = 0.5 kWh) or 0.5/16 or 3%=1.8 miles? No, there are multiple problems with that... There is something called a 14v 7 cell lead acid batter...

Re: New I-MiEV's --- Maybe, maybe not

^ yup... that's true they could sling most of the electrics and specify what works for a USDM... It's about time that all of us used the same technology... but that would require the US to go to 240v ac... which would cost a bomb, but it would be really useful for the future. Since we are split pha...

Re: New I-MiEV's --- Maybe, maybe not

Perhaps we need to say F U to safety, just ground per the standard and setup our cars to be more ignorant and accepting of grounding issues.

My old EVs, you just plugged them into normal cable, no ground fault and it the thing charged fine without any problems.
