Re: MG ZS EV

You can also change the charge rate on the unit itself via the touch sensor and into the menus. That sensor is an option now on all kits. I have a touch button but I couldn't get it to work. The command to enable it was not recognised. I suspect the front button function has been completely removed...

Re: MG ZS EV

7kw EVSE's are available from OpenEVSE for under $500. Be aware however that they aren't 'portable' in the same context as a 10 amp or 15 amp plug-in EVSE as they need around 30 amps at 240v, and there wouldn't be a regular GPO in the country that will allow as much draw. Very rarely one might find...

Re: Intel on Ioniq 5

Yeah price needs to be competitive. If people think about it, a current Ioniq is a very compelling choice at $50k. It's range is only a fraction shorter than a base model 3, but the price is $30k less. That buys a lot of floor mat. The next iterations of Hyundai's EVs will be longer range and there...

Re: BlueLink

I'm still curious why Bluelink got canned in Australia when it is still available elsewhere. Presumably the issue was more to do with compliance / regulation than anything technical? Australia never had Bluelink in the first place. We used a barstardised version of Auto Link Premium in conjunction ...

Re: local council put in tesla-only charger

If you know what you're doing, it's a quick switch to put into "legacy Mode" to make it suitable for all type 2 vehicles. (and others with adapters) I would imagine that the council got it for free from tesla and probably don't know any different. I carry a set of torque screws in my car for just t...

Re: Ioniq motor replacement

I agree, there's a bearing-like noise there. Hopefully motor bearing can be replaced and the motor can find its way back on the second hand market - would make a fun conversion powerplant :) My Kona drivetrain has developed a very slight milling noise. Not concerned just yet. That vid on the other ...

Re: Kona BMS recall: Anyone had the BMS module replaced?

Sounds like you are confusing the BMS (Battery Management System) from the Battery pack itself. You will be waiting for a full battery pack to arrive from SK. I haven't heard any issue with the BMS causing issues.

Re: Our second car is going to be the MG ZS EV

Tesla HPWC will charge other vehicles when set to "Legacy Mode". It's a simple matter of switching a dip switch. No that's not entirely true. The later versions (such as the ones supplied with Model 3) of the charger ignore this DIP switch setting. I take it that a 2020 one won’t charge a non Tesla...

Re: Our second car is going to be the MG ZS EV

We have just traded our Vitara on the 2021 ZS EV - in red. Due late January apparently. Any tips gratefully received.....apps charging etc (we have a Model 3 SR+ with wall charger) We are now free of the oil industry. I doubt the HPWC will charge the MG as they are supplied locked to Tesla with M3.
