Antaris, thank you for posting. Clarification - is that 72 replacement fuses or 72 inverters? Either way, an average of 12/year in one dealership is a frightening number!
kiev, nice cottage business for you if you can suss out the problem.
Purely speculating, inadequate IGBT protection in the design? Google "IGBT Protection Methods" for tons of hits. Would that blow the fuse?Edit:
Been thinking about this, and the numbers simply don't add up. 72 fuse/inverter replacements in six years nationwide
would be an unacceptable failure rate, IMO, out of 2108 i-MiEVs sold in the US. (number sold came from InsideEVs.com).
