Are they heat pump or resistive cab heating?
Resistive heating for us. Other cold markets get heat pump.

Re: Hyundai Australia Kona EV info

The story I got about the delay was that it was due to an issue with the GPS navigation system. There is no homologation delay as can be seen here: http://rvcs-prodweb.dot.gov.au/pls/wwws/pubrvcs.view_app_details?sCertID=48794&sMakeModel=HYUNDAI+OS Homologolation and certification are two different...

Re: Prelude conversion project - some questions

In regards to the IGN and SRT wires go for the higher gauge wires like coil feed and starter motor solenoid feed but fit appropriate fusing for the items connected. That will avoid any volt drop with lighter gauge circuits.

Re: X1 vs S6000?

I'm going to test drive the X1 next week. I guess the main competition in my mind the ZEV S6000 . The biggest concern other than the price is the small wheels and form factor of the X1. I just don't see it being a good commuter for me (22km each way, 80kph zones, some long steep hills). Leaning tow...

The Kona EV will have 2 retail models (Elite and Highlander) and a special fleet model that will sit under the elite. Both Elite and Highlander models will be fitted with an 8" touch screen featuring Apple Car...

I have ordered one...Or perhaps preordered one..:-)

The first batch of cars for WA will hit the wharf this month according to the dealer. With a little snooping that means the 19th Feb.

$50K for the Elite spec and $55k for the Premium/Highlander spec plus ORC in WA.

There are EVSE's available to do this like this.. https://www.khonsevse.com/product/portable-evse-charger-2/ You would of course need to swap the euro blue plug for a 32A version.

Re: Auxiliary Battery - Why?

I notice that the I-Pace, Tesla and many other pure EVs still have an auxiliary 12V battery. For the I-Pace, it's an AGM battery, not Lithium, so it's likely to only have a lifetime of ~ 5 years. Worse, it appears that if the aux battery runs down, the whole vehicle is disabled. Presumably, they've...

Re: Replacement Battery Options for 2012 i-MiEV?

The new battery packs have LEV50N cells which require software updates to the BMU and then calibration with the CMU's. Nicely packaged on a CD but useless unless you have an MUT-III diagnostic tool and the applicable modules for I-Miev.
