Re: 2018 Leaf spotted...

My CRX is pretty close to unserviceable, but I can't afford an EV to replace it. So I have to stump up to maintain it and sweath the two-wheeled options as long as I can. We would like to buy a used Leaf (maybe from Japan) in the first half of next year, but it's got to be under $14k. Very frustrati...

Re: AVASS Battery order details

The clearing account I'd set up had a payment of $525 in it referenced: "FERGUSON SOLAR BATTERIES". The amount looks like a half-payment but I have no matching records for it. Anyway, because of this extra payment I was able to pay the full shipping bill with $76 to spare. If not for this I would b...

Yep, that's correct. You are of course limited by speed now, so it won't be a particularly fast mover, but should move OK.

Re: Aftermarket iMiEV battery upgrade project

I think the first step will be to get your hands on an old iMiEV battery and pull it apart. Take your time and work out how many cells can be made to fit, without complicating the BMS placement and wiring. Then it should be a quick replacement job.

Re: Total Cost of Ownership - ICE and EV

The RAC report included the cost of finance, as if to suggest that borrowing money to buy a car is not only the done thing, it's encouraged.

I'd add the Kangoo ZE to the list of EVs available now.

Also hope to be able to add the Ioniq EV + PHEV and the Kona EV to the list by year's end.

Want to buy - reliable used EV $10k to $16k

Well the CRX suffered another ignition problem and left Kat stranded. $300 worth of towtruck later we're home, but she's refused to drive it ever again. Even if I find the source of the problem and fix it, 99.9% reliable is not reliable enough. So we're in the market for a used EV, preferably a Leaf...

Bump!
Jason is keen to move these buses on, and the price of $250,000 for all three buses and two DC fast chargers is negotiable.
Any tour operators? Coach lines of interest?

That's only for linked (third party) images. To add an image to this forum ensuring it's never lost like all my Photobucket images, it's best to resize to 800x600 pixels and upload as an attachment.

Anyway, more about the electric Pajero!

That should be enough to do 220 km around town, and a comfortable 180 km on the highway.

Wonder if they offer battery upgrades...
