Re: Chademo speed and max soc

Unless I start somewhere above 60%, mine have always stopped around 80%. I don't know why Mitsubishi chose this behavior, maybe to encourage folks to not sit there for an hour when 20 minutes will do.

Re: I-Miev hot rod, anyone?

If you were in North America, I think a lot more of us would be mad as there are so few of them. World/Euro-spec I-MiEVs are quite numerous.

Re: I-Miev hot rod, anyone?

Pretty cool!

What's the backstory on the donor car? Was it a wreck?

Re: How does the Air Con work?

The temperature knob controls the heater element and, if enabled, the A/C pressure (how cold the coil gets). With the temperature on the green dot, the car won't heat or cool the air unless the A/C button is lit. Even then, the A/C compressor runs minimally, just enough to dry the air. Unlike a conv...

Re: Aptera Petition to adopt Tesla Charging Standard

As it stands now, we have 4 connectors for EVs in the US. CHAdeMO is being phased out, yet new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEVs and Nissan LEAFs (among a few others) are still sold with CHAdeMO. There are many trips I used to do in the I-MiEV that now cannot be done unless I spend 10 hours at level 2 stat...

Re: Rough ride. What's up with our 2014 iMiEV?

Front shocks? That would be my guess as there’s not much to cause the suspension to get stiffer. Maybe sway bar bearings would be my next guess.

Aptera Petition to adopt Tesla Charging Standard

So, Aptera just sent out this petition in hopes of having the Tesla connector adopted as the US Standard. Since I have all the connectors in my fleet, I can definitely support this as Tesla's setup is the best (despite my frozen charge port issues, but that's more vehicle design than charge port). C...

Re: 2012 ES i-MiEV hatchback

Nope. No such beast in these cars. Yet another advantage to simplicity.

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

Still have mine and drive it occasionally. I got my new battery a week ago. Not much difference in range yet, but I’ve only put one cycle on the pack so far. Since my car has never received any software updates, I noticed a few things that have changed with the latest software. 1. Windshield washer ...

Re: Turtle Light at high SOC

Turtle Light is coming on in the second video (side-by-side with CaniOn) because of the cells hitting the low-voltage cutoff of 2.8 volts. The car is limiting power to keep the voltage from dropping too low (and what a good job it did). While low temperature is a factor, increased cell resistance is...
