I have a history and reputation as an owner of weird cars and vehicles… and Miev I bought yesterday fits perfectly.
I started foo months ago new contract and to commute to work for 35km in one direction. And I was thinking, why I do not fulfil my wish for an EV, and buy myself one on excuse that I’m saving big time. (Totally sold this one to my wife)
Company wants to give me car 24/7 but with GPS… no way, give me the money for commute expanse, and I will buy myself a car, electric one…
They pay me full commute expanses, so for 5y and all electricity that I will spend, I-Miev will be fully paid off. And I do believe after 8-9 y this will still be very usable car.
So I bought nice white one, used, 9.000 euros. 2014 with 60 000km. Form local Mitsubishi dealer. It has small scratches, but who cares… Anyway, I hate when I buy a new car that has no scratches and dents, and then after some time I see the first one… I hate that feeling when I want to kill someone…
Now, little about me:
My name is Mario Ivancic, I’m from Croatia. Living in a country 35km from capitol Zagreb. Now I’m working as IT administrator in a medium IT company specialized for printing solutions.
I’m schooled car technician, and I worked in car industry for 20 years. I worked for Peugeot, Citroen, and Renault. But after big automotive meltdown in 2010-2011 her in EU. I changed my career, and started to work on my second love, computers. I like cars very much, but computer geeks are paid better…
And yes I met Mate Rimac (factory is 50km from my home on other side of Zagreb), we know each other from 402 drag races in his beginning with electric BMW. In that time I was driving rare Peugeot. 405T16 and Mate was pioneering and destroying transmissions with electricity
Do not ask me if I can get hands on Rimac parts and batteries, I did not see the guy for 10y now. And he is now very, very hard to get guy... So answer is no, I cannot.
This is great forum, and I hope I will contribute to it.
Sorry on my bad English, unfortunately I learned German and Russian in School.
