Volt servicing in Perth WA

Where do Perth Volt owners get servicing done? Is there anywhere other than Melville Holden?

Yes, while it wouldn't be able to carry as much mail or parcels it would be a lot more fun to ride and more practical. Having said that it's hard to beat the simplicity and most importantly the maneuverability of a motorcycle.

The full Hyundai Ioniq range headed down under

My guess on the Ioniq pricing is the Hybrid for $34,000 the PHEV for close to $40,000 and the EV for around $50,000.
Would love to be wrong though and have the EV here for $40,000.   Image

That is great news. http://forums.aeva.asn.au/smileys/smiley1.gif http://forums.aeva.asn.au/smileys/smiley20.gif I was thinking we would only get the hybrid and possibly the PHEV. Let's hope the price of the PHEV and EV are reasonable. My next car could be a Hyundai. http://forums.aeva.asn.au/smiley...

Hit a Kangaroo at 50kmh

I had a near miss with a big kangaroo in my dad's Leaf. It was on a very quiet country road after dark, glad I was traveling at 70kph instead of the 100kph speed limit! Sat at 60kph after that and a few km up the road I nearly hit an owl in the middle of the road. Sometimes EV's are just too quiet.

Nissan's 544km long range Nissan Leaf

The current model Leaf has a range of 225km on the Japanese test cycle so a 48kwh version could get close to double that figure. A 48kwh Leaf would have a real world range of 250km at 100kph which would be great if they don't cost too much.

Get a price - Gold Coast Nissan

I think Nissan need to be pricing these old stock Leafs for under $30,000 if they want to sell them. Think there should be some ex lease Leafs on the market soon too?
There were some well priced Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV's for under $35,000 recently. They had done some km though.

I have the Ozito mower too. Swapped out the heavy lead acid pack and put in a lightweight RC Lipo pack that I also use on my electric mountain bike. I use 4x 22.2V 5AH packs wired in parallel. It's great! So light and easy to manouver.

Antiscab could it be the stacked arrangement of the battery pack contributing to the heat buildup? Toyota changed their Prius packs to a single layer of cells with the NHW11.

It is good that they all have the same acceleration in all modes! I was surprised in my dad's 2010 in Eco mode to find it has restricted power even when you press the accelerator hard into the floor. Image
