Re: B-mode for regular driving

Since the shift lever does nothing but disconnect the electrical circuitry, it would be really nice if we just had a button for that . . . . so that we needn't push the 'shifter' back and forth. A paddle on the steering wheel would be ideal . . . . press (or pull) it when you want to coast, release...

I wish buyer would have by default option to choose the current for charging their car regarding capabilities of his home grid.

On the other hand, the recomendation (in a February 2012 letter to US owners) that the battery be taken down to two bars and then left alone to fully recharge, and that this be done once in the first year and the...

Re: iMiEV Battery Cell Balancing

For me it is hard not to make a full load. My daily commute is about 50-60 km (30-40 mi), in a mountainous area, which eat half or more of the battery (so I recharge daily) Because electricity is much cheaper at night, I leave it plugged in to charge with a timer. The charger put in little more than...

Re: iMiEV Battery Cell Balancing

And same for Peugeot: To optimise the service life of the main battery, recharge it completely every 15 days. For a recharge to be complete, follow the procedure for a normal recharge (domestic power point) without interruption, until it switches off automatically (charging lamp goes off in the inst...

Re: B-mode for regular driving

Euro clones, Peugeot iOn and Citroen C-Zero, have only one forward speed, "D", and I think is similar at iMiev's "B", with a lot of regen.
