Re: Single LEV50-cell wanted for our Citroen C-Zero

Mitsubishi battery warranty is 8 years/100,000 miles in the U.S. at least. For the i-MiEVs that were purchased in 2012, that warranty expires in the year 2020, unless you hit 100,000 miles first. A few of us (myself included) have had paperwork from service work at the dealer state that the warranty has been extended to 10 years/100,000, pushing our cars to 2022 or later. However, I haven't seen that replicated by any other source, including the owner's portal on mitsubishicars.com.

Just to get a idea how long was the entire process ?

Hello Don,

no change, only checked/corrected the mounting of the rubber thing.

4 hours + 1/2 hour delay to find the additional mounting points of the pack. Have a look to Benjamin Nelsons Video https://youtu.be/EmgRuhqba0I?t=1m3s. He is talking about this plates.

Don.....


My technicians told me -- without me asking -- that the warranty was extended to 10 years. Moreover, he is supposed to have formation soon as to replace a single cell.

Congratulations me68. For me, it was a surprise, the location of the 23.

The cell replaced in Malm's drawing is here:

Perhaps the front and back groups of LEV50-8's are reversed?

The battery pack is composed of ten LEV50-8 battery modules with eight 3.7V LEV50 batteries and six temperature sensors each, and two LEV50-4 battery modules with four 3.7V LEV50 batteries and three temperature sensors each, for a total of 88 LEV50 batteries and 66 temperature sensors.
The two LEV50-4 battery modules sit in the battery pack so as to have their battery management circuitry and temperature sensors mounted on top of the batteries, while the ten LEV50-8 battery modules sit in the battery pack so as to have their battery management circuitry and temperature sensors mounted on the side of the batteries.


So, I will have to think about this again.

Hello!

Please not! If you know it, please tell it. If not, it's only a sneaking suspicion from you.
