Re: Are the 2012 models getting too risky?

Does the heated steering wheel come in the ES? Or was that reserved for the SE models in the 2012? I looked to see in Joe's post about the SE vs ES post, but I didn't see any mention of it. So I was curious if that was not available in the ES.

There was no heated steering wheel on any 2012 i-MiEV. I forget, was that a feature on the 2014/2016 i-MiEV? Need to update the post comparing the 2012 ES and SE and expand it to include the 2014/2016 models. http://myimiev.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=3228

Unfortunately, I don't have sales brochures for those years (did they even have them?). Need to poke around this forum to find that stuff...

Two 2014's here . . . ES is the only model offered for 2014, 2016, 2017. The steering wheel is not heated on either of ours. Twin seat heaters and DCQC standard though. :)

Thanks guys, not sure where I thought I saw something about a heated wheel. Maybe just mixing up stuff from looking at the Leaf stuff a while ago. I appreciate the feedback.

Not heated and not tilt/telescoping either, though I do read all kinds of 'For Sale' ads where they claim it is :lol:

I have been watching the ads for one with a "Flux Capacitor and a 1.21 gigawatt range extender", but haven't seen one yet... :D LOL
