Re: Charging the I MIEV @ 6.6 Kw instead the nominal 3.3

Supply of 8, 10, 13, 16A EVSE is country regulations depending in EU. In some EU members (like CH), only 10A is allowed. First cars in Slovenia were delivered with 16A EVSE. In last months only 10A EVSE was possible.

Re: iMiEV Battery Cell Balancing

Joe, if you're asking for default battery maintenance, the manual and service officer say for the first year: Obligatory full charging at least every 15 days! (My friend is really pro in Li-Ion batteries and found that very strange.) After one year or 20.000 km (which comes first) cells balancing!?!...

Re: iMiEV Battery Cell Balancing

Well, I think there are two possible reasons for differencies: A) PSA (Citroen + Peugeot) just don't know what they are selling! B) Battery in EU version isn't the same as the I-one. I prefer answer A. When I took test vehicle in last august, nobody was able to answer some simple questions about reg...

Re: RANGE INDICATOR ON CITROEN C-ZERO

Is this correct that you have in US 8 years or 100.000 miles battery warranty?

Citroen version offers only 5 years or 50.000 km (31.000 miles) :evil: I just don't understand why somebody downgraded original Mitsubishi terms when all vital parts are the same in all 3 versions.

Re: RANGE INDICATOR ON CITROEN C-ZERO

The power to the motor is reduced and the AC/Heat will turn off. This is one of things where C-zero and Ion differ from i-miev. When turtle lights on, power is not reduced, AC and heating still work. IMHO that sucks. Ion and C-zero should automatically turn off all major power consumers, just like ...

Re: RANGE INDICATOR ON CITROEN C-ZERO

Almost everybody suggest you stay between 2 and 14 bars. Citroen's manual says that at least once in two weeks you should fully recharge your battery. So, yes, turtle is your reserve of power. If possible, start recharging before turtle appears, or even better, before the last bar dissapears.

Re: Just closed deal over the phone - hopefully pickup tomor

Regarding the "B" mode; does anyone have reliable info to confirm that it is safe to drive constantly in it? Using B mode on flat roads presents a certain danger. Regenerative braking is faster without warning of brake lights, which can mislead drivers behind you that your speed remains u...

Re: RANGE INDICATOR ON CITROEN C-ZERO

Boris, you can expect anything between 60km and 170 km, depending on your driving speed, acceleration, using regenerative braking, heating, AC, tyres quality... My record with C-zero is 169km without turtle (you can add another 15-20 km max with turtle on) My low record was 68 km driving fast (mostl...
