The Blade "Model S"?

Tesla won't be happy about that.

Also, I'm amused by the first row in that table.

Apparently the Blade vehicles have a value of "439" for "Unknown". That's much better than the I-MiEV's "n/a" and Leaf's "unknown" value for "Unknown". The Blade gives us 439 arbitrary units of something that we wouldn't get in the Mitsubishi or the Leaf!

It appears that the cabin air conditioning is vented to the batteries - but I'm not totally sure. They also speak of running the aircon when fast charging in later models.

Here he opens the battery pack. See the "don't try this at home, folks!" moment Image



I'm guessing that this is a Fukushima pack. What a waste. And there must have been hundreds of cars, not just i-MiEVs.
