Re: Quantifying Regeneration

OK, I have a Hall-effect clamp-on 200A ammeter with a a six-foot cord which enables me to read amps while driving. Put the clamp on one of the wires going from the battery pack to the controller, and took our iMiEV for a drive. Here are the ammeter readings correlating to the Power Gauge markings: (...

Re: Hello from northern New Mexico: i on order for May deliv

Hi TaosEV - welcome to the Forum! Wow - you got to drive the Impact and I'm sure it hurt to give back the Honda EV+. I think you'll find the iMiEV eminently suitable for your everyday needs and its range and speed and peppiness and interior space will be quite a contrast with the Zenn, without the o...

Re: Actual mileage per charge

Hi bradley, congrats on being a future iMiEV owner. Methinks you're about to experience a paradigm shift. Ask anyone how many miles per tank they get with their internal-combustion-engine (ICE) vehicle and you will undoubtedly get a quizzical look and an "I dunno". My answer for the iMiEV ...

Re: Maximum Range Remaining

So can anyone explain why it shows 76 miles remaining when I car @240 volts (at home), and it reports 56 when I charge @120 volts (at work)? The car charger has shut off the charging process in both cases. At home its usually charging longer since the battery has been run down more (like two bars o...

Re: Cargo Cover?

In case someone is interested, in lieu of a cargo cover here's a photo of the two boxes: http://www.katiekat.net/Vehicles/Mitsi/MitsiBoxes.jpg Since I'm averse to anything loose moving around in the car, these boxes stay locked into position fairly tightly, with the aft seatbacks vertical. Great for...

Re: Maximum Range Remaining

idanby, you're close! When you get your photo, you need to reduce it significantly and then load it somewhere on the web where it can be identified and referenced with the "Img" style selection.

Re: Cargo Cover?

Hi Jenn. Interesting idea to tint the rear window. What about the heat from the rear-window defroster? One Rubbermaid container won't do it, as it will move around. I don't know about you, but I NEVER carry any loose item in the car and with my driving a single container would simply fly all over th...

Re: Dash Displays - suggestion for improvement

idanby, I agree with you on the HVAC control location. Dunno why they didn't stick with the original MiEV horizontal pattern. Regarding the steering - I happen to like the steering turns ratio the way it is as I drive a lot of winding roads; however, I don't think the issue is that it is too fast (i...

Two Months and Two Thousand Miles

Our thoughts, after two months and slightly over two thousand miles… The iMiEV has more than met our expectations (and I have no vested interest in Mitsubishi) … Background We already have long-term electric-vehicle experience: a couple of Corbin Sparrows have been our daily drivers for the past few...
