Re: FS: Mitsubishi i-Miev - PARTS only

I am in Melbourne and I need a heater housing complete with levers for a MY2012. I will first need to check with the dealer if the earlier model one is a replacement.

Pronunciation of i-MiEV

Hi AC, this is all very interesting, but i am going to go with Q4, as I call my i, an eye me ev. Also the Japanese for LEAF is not really relevant as I believe it is also an English Acronym. "Leading Environmentally-friendly Active Family car" according to WIKI, although I thought it was Low Emissio...

Black imiev Morley Mitsubishi Make an offer

There were 90 already in the country when they dropped the price and then distributed them around the dealerships. Hippie403 is correct Mitsubishi currently do not plan to continue with the car, although they still sell in the US. I can't believe they have not all gone. $20,000 and six months to con...

iMiEV tyre wear status

Hi, AC, enjoyment of the driving experience when entering roundabouts might do it, that and hard left turns. Although I must confess the skinny fronts do not give me the confidence to chuck the i into a corner. I usually wait until I am in a straight line before amping it, which I try to limit to on...

iMiEV tyre wear status

Looks like your right front is scrubbing, AC Motor, that could be the rear wheel alignment, you would expect the left front to get more wear if roads you use have a lot of camber not the right, unless you continually get crosswinds. Main point, I got a i-MiEV on loan a year ago, the ride and handlin...

8 year 100k mile warranty in Canada & US

The longer Battery warranty in the US is mandated by Federal law, that is one reason why the cars were sold at a premium, if you remember in 2010 20KwH packs in the US were quoted at $10,000. (this is also the price from Mitsubishi spare parts) I am surprised about Canada unless they have a law too,...

Petrol Prices.

Buying a I-miev

Looks like a lot of things are covered here, the i-MiEV 'fuel gauge' has 16 bars on it and each bar equates to about 1KW, the manual tells you never to use the last 2 bars. However from the specs, at empty you would only be at 80% DOD which is probably the safety factor built in. On another point, t...

EV Run to Adelaide AGM and Festival, 2010

Hi Coulomb, Dave has 2 on board chargers but they both charge the lithium pack. The Lithiums feed the lead acid, which power the motor and protect the lithiums from excess discharge. The total capacity should give 100km maximum range, but he was getting over 130km, so there is some sort of synergy i...

Australian Design Rules for Electric Vehicles

Australian Design rules are not 100% applicable to private vehicle imports. So if you are importing for your private use, the vehicle does not have to meet all of them. It will still need to be registered if you intend to drive it on the roads. Therefore it have to inspected by your local state regi...

Another 3 wheeler EV hybird

It could be more stable than a four wheeler, due to the weight at the rear being over the rear wheel, looking at the pictures, the front track looks about the same as a small FWD, to tip it you would have to lift a front wheel, when was the last time you lifted a wheel when cornering? Depending on t...
