Re: MiniCab, meet i-MiEV

Road legal?

I love Kei cars, would love to have a kei truck with a dual range 5 speed and the very rare NA 3 cylinder Daihatsu Diesel.

Ah well, to dream

Re: Let the Hacking Begin

For a drive across the country a cheap 130lb diesel genset is a better option. (if such a thing existed)

Re: Let the Hacking Begin

Enginer :( What I would like to see from this company or really any like enginer is specifics on where they are tapping so the car will accept extra current, I could care less about the inverter that fails. Get the worlds most efficient 5kw diesel genset http://www.centralmainediesel.com/order/yanma...

Re: hub center bores different

If I got a MIEV I would want to convert the tires to G1 Honda insight tires AKA 165x65r14 all around Mainly because to this day they still have the lowest rolling resistance of any tire. Ah well, just a dream, I wonder if rims could be made like the oldies in the 1980's where one rim would fit a car...

Re: Help Me: I hate the "Golf Cart" comment

WTB $5000 MIEV

I had another in state $5000 MIEV slip through my fingers, this time an SE w/ only a tad north of 5000 miles, it was at a dealership in Lacross so I could have traded my aging Miles ZX40 (another rapidly devaluing EV) If anyone knows of a cheapy I am probably going to have to travel to get one and n...

Re: Range extender !

If you want better MPG, you just need to add EFI a wideband and $50 is aero streaming. Truly that trailer offers a missed opportunity to make your MIEV into a streamliner Also a VW is only a couple hundred bucks to convert to CNG if you want cleaner and cheaper. and yes all that has been done before...

Re: Interesting article about the used EV market

With the used Nissan leafs starting out at a retail of $6990 on up, I have to guess that Think & MIEV varients probably aren't too far from there in an auction or private party sale. The party has ended so to say as mericans figure "low" gas prices of nearly $3 means they should buy su...

Re: gas-powered i Fuel Economy

The gas-powered i would not meet US crash test results. Because of this, you could not legally or gray market import this vehicle for any use other than race track use. It has nothing to do with MEET, US Government, EVEN IF IT WERE 100% IDENTICAL WOULD BAN IT BECAUSE EACH DRIVETRAIN REQUIRES A NEW ...

Re: Range extender !

Indeed- it's relatively easy to rectify a consumer genset 240V alternator, Military gensets off liquidation sites are very cheap and they happen to come in configurations up to 440v and even in DC configurations. Of course our 3.3 kW onboard charger is only worth about 15 mph of charging I drive an...
