Re: Future battery replacement

The bigger problem will be putting an expensive battery into a 10 or 15 year old MIEV. - I bought the car because it was cheap, not because it was the finest EV on the market. - Its a cheap little basic economy car. The only reason it had such a high sticker price is because it has a $20,000 batter...

Re: This is The Next Electric Vehicle I Would Like to Purcha

One of best and useful addons could be CanIon android app with appropriate OBD reader. It's like (what Malm said) being blind no more.

Re: TFLcar clueless i-MiEV review - video

I understand such spoiled blonde, accustomed to fast, luxury cars. For such people I-MiEV feels like real shit. Their mentality is completely different. They are not willing to even consider the possibility of waiting somewhere for two hours to recharge the battery, or, for example, driving without ...

Re: Battery degradation

So the question is, what kind of battery degradation have you observed in your own iMiEVs over the years and miles driven? I'm only interested in actual user reports, not hearsay or guesswork. How far can you go with your pack now compared to new? After two years and 50.000 kms I lost 8% of battery...

Re: Battery degradation

Secondly, for those who have had noticeable range reduction I am interested to learn if it has been reflected in any loss of 'fuel gauge' bars - like the aging LEAFs are showing. If all the initial loss is happening below turtle mode capacity level then I guess it will not show up in the bars. Obvi...

Re: Do you feel ICE drivers bully the iMiev ?

In two years having C-Zero and more than 50k km I have not had such unpleasant situation on the road. It seems to me, due to the strong publicity of electromobility drivers become tolerant and understanding to slightly slower EVs. Or maybe the reason is just more relaxed living here.
