Re: Purchased today, on the way home :)

Very similar case to me. I bought 90 miles away, charged at 70 miles away with a view that I would need to charge again, but managed to get home on that charge with 3 miles to spare - albeit with an incredibly light foot, on 50mph roads, not the highways.

Also have a '12 with 11K miles. welcome.

Re: New forum member with recent purchase

Interesting that your car is that early. It is possible that these early 2012 iMievs here in Norway is actually 2011-models, most likely unsold cars from other European countries. iMiev was the first car which really started the EV-craze here in Norway and the Mitsubishi-dealers could sell pretty m...

Re: Fully Charged

Robert LLewellyn is one of my hero's, he starred as Kryten (the robot) in the BBC 'Red Dwarf' sitcom, which was one of my favorites as a kid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IoHhim3CF0A The other Fully Charged videos are a really good watch - not from the technical point of view, but as a motoring m...

Re: New forum member with recent purchase

It's really interesting to hear of the different features and options on these cars in different parts of the world, and I'm amazed that you got a MiEV remote with your car (the Omron remote). That was something we thought only NA cars received. No, the European iMievs got the remote too. At least ...

Re: Steering Wheel Thumb Controls?

i have a 2012 SE Premium with radio station and volume control buttons on the left thumb, along with bluetooth phone buttons a little lower on the left side also. Now my right thumb panel is blank, except that i pulled that little cover off (#1 philips from the back side) and found a 4 pin connecto...

Re: New forum member with recent purchase

If you want to hear if from outside the car, start it into ready mode, shift to N, set the handbrake--then you can get out and walk around to hear the spaceship sound... It is absolutely a spaceship sound. It's also the kind of sound that would freak the lesser brave out on a dark country road in t...

Re: New forum member with recent purchase

Nice write-up. The pedestrian warning system audio can be disconnected at the external speaker under the car if you don't want to hear it. You will find that remote most valuable to pre-heat your car in defrost mode during the winter with the seat warmers switched on. I'll not fiddle with it, its o...

Re: Wife Drove Off While Plugged IN!

It's very fortunate the car wasn't damaged, that's all I can say. I cant understand this either, as my car will definitely not start if plugged in. perhaps stick a bright notice on the garage door with the relevant protocol. An occupational hazard, but not an insurmountable one it would seem. I aske...

Glad you now have an i-MiEV of your own. It's really interesting to hear of the different features and options on these cars in different parts of the world, and I'm amazed that you got a MiEV remote with your car (the Omron remote). That was something we thought only NA cars received. I was very s...

Re: New forum member with recent purchase

Interesting to hear so much detail about a RHD i-MiEV - I am jealous of your remote, seat heaters, extra transmission modes (though one day I will tweak/fix my iOn) and even your driving noise thing - there are a couple of places I drive where I could do with something like that. Impressive range a...
