Thought this interesting, iMiev battery upgrade from Australia and they’re looking for partners:
Very interesting, and great to see 3rd party development and expansion for i-MiEVs. Doubling the range is a considerable boost to the car's usability for many people. I think I heard elsewhere that they have to fake the car's measurements to access the additional range. I still wonder if the original capacity calculator would eventually open up to the whole pack. I know it's a different beast entirely, but one of my old phones managed to nearly completely adjust to a battery more than 3 times the original capacity. Runtime was amazing (3 days of hard use), but it took all night to charge.
Kinda curious on that one-pedal system they have. Would the ABS system be able to independently apply the brakes, and do it smoothly? On my Bolt, it can apply the brakes on its own, but using hardware that the i-MiEV doesn't have (an electric brake booster, and possibly extra pump hardware on the brake lines). When it activates, it makes a loud, very rapid pumping sound. Of course, when this activates, the car comes to an abrupt stop.
