Tell em they're dreaming.

No matter how they swing it, the prices will be compared to the petrol version of the same car.

Re: Hyundai Australia Kona EV info

The basest of base Model 3 is likely to start at $60k in Australia thanks to the exchange rate, and the fact Tesla is releasing tricked-out performance versions well ahead of the cheaper options. The Kona is a Model 3 competitor in that it's an electric car with a long driving range, but that's abo...

Re: 2nd Hand LEAF

The new battery finally arrived from Japan and was replaced about a week ago. Hoorah! So we're back to new-car range of 130 km or more. The guessometer claimed 160 km when it left the workshop. They couldn't tell us whether the replacement has the same old LMO chemistry or the newer NMC chemistry. ...

I've got a bunch (36x) of CALB SE130Ah cells in Port Macquarie... Are you sure that they are 130 Ah? What size are they? Definitely SE130AH - can't measure them now, my garage has limited space so they're packed up at my Dad's where there's more room and tools. Here's a photo though of the 130 Ah c...

Re: Help required with school assignment

What an assignment! I've got a bunch (36x) of CALB SE130Ah cells in Port Macquarie, that came out of a conversion as they were end of life for pushing a full sized car around. After measuring internal resistance, the worst ones were set aside and the remaining set up in pairs ready to be strapped up...

Siemens Versicharge 7.2 kW EVSE is available to go with the car too. VC30GRYU.

Car can charge from a 15A GPO or from the EVSE - but it's nice for compatibility with other EVs.

I got to see this in the workshop when the build was nearly done - snapped a few photos as I was really impressed with the build. It would be a hoot to drive I'm sure.

Not sure on what MMAU is claiming, but looking at the screenshot from EvBatMon... about 12kWh. Voltage is 80 series cells, 40Ah. 300V * 40Ah = 12kWh.

My employer has two '17 PHEV exceed's incoming as fleet vehicles. We've had one of the the '17 compliance cars (new look, no chademo) for two months or so.

First one is being delivered tomorrow, so I guess they are hitting the road now.

How does it go for public charging? does it communicate with the EVSE so as not draw more current than the installation can provide?

Sounds like a great achievement!
