Re: Spare wheel for Kona

Aparently Hyundai in India sell the Kona electric with a spare. (Was watching an Indian video of the Kona electric and there was a quick reference and shot of it). Still to source one though. Cheers Bryce

Re: Home charging

Hi Chris-asking price, car details etc are all in EVNews ad. (Too much to retype here). Price obviously negotiable if you don’t want Vic rego, RWC, Zappy and BYO EVSE lead (as described in ad). Contact me through details in EVNews ad if intested. Cheers Bryce

Re: Home charging

Hi there - my recommendations (as an electrician and EVSE installer/tinkerer) is I'd go with a Zappy or similar: in your situation, that would ensure you get the most out of solar charging and keep your EV to the min CO2-e possible. Putting in dedicated EVSE with its heavy duty type 2 plug also avoi...

Re: VicRoads Club Reg

Hi there - speaking as the Vic branch secretary: for one branch to do that for (probably) one or 2 cars at most - it is way too much work to establish and maintain. (The cars after all must still be over 25 years old to be considered for a club permit). BTW: I am a member of another car club that ma...

Hi there - no, AEVA is not a CAMS registered car club, which I believe makes it ineligible for applying to maintain a Club Rego register. What sort of car are you wanting to CH plate? Would it be possible to join a car club for the marque and CH plate it through them? Cheers Bryce Secretary: AEVA Vi...

Re: Crossing the mountains

Hi Dave-did it in a Kona about 2 months ago. Bairnsdale to Myrtleford. Arrived with about 100km range to spare. (Was running heater over the mountain though. 0 and below and still lots of snow then).There is a type 2 AC charger at Hotham if you are nervous though.

Re: EV Sticker for Number Plates

The Leaf they sent them for is registered as a 2011 model. My 2019 Kona has not been sent any! BTW the Vic regs have actually applied for quite some time - I have been getting them made to the Vic reg specs (as in just like the ones they sent!) for about 7 years.

Re: EV Sticker for Number Plates

Interestingly (owning 3 EVs), I only received one set of stickers (for the Leaf). Nothing for the other 2. I wonder how accurate their records are... or were they were overwhelmed by so many EVs on their records that they had to send the sticker out in several batches? 😆

Re: AC Type 2 chargers - Understanding different combinations

Hi there-fact sheets are as correct as I can get them given the difficulty of getting some of the data 'officially'! All are currently right though. (I monitor for vehicle updates). BTW: As far as I understand it-all Type 1 and 2 plug cars can step up and down in a fairly granular manner. Cheers Bryce

Hi Patrick - I have offered them to the dealers, but they appear uninterested. :-(

Contact me for a pair. $10 a set posted. Profits to AEVA.

Re: Kona AC charging question

Any EVSE set to a lower limit will be fine. I built my 3.6kW portable EVSE specifically for caravan park 15A outlets. Worked perfectly on the EV Long Weekend tour with my Kona. 😊 BTW, from memory the Kona itself can be set for lower charge rates if you want it to.
