Re: EV subsidies - When will Australia learn?

I don't think we need subsidies. Just no GST or Stamp duty on electric car sales would probably do the trick. The rego on my petrol ute is still cheaper than the discount rego on my LEAF. It can actually cost more to register and an electric car because of the battery weight.

Re: Fitting CarPlay headunit and dashcam to 2012 Nissan Leaf

Is the charge level/timer, climate control timer etc all still programmable on the replacement head unit?

Re: Inverters not accepting generator power

You could try putting a load on the generator between it and the inverter. Maybe 1,2 or 3 150 watt flood light bulbs and see if that makes it happy, although that wastes a lot of power.

Re: Aftermarket iMiEV battery upgrade project

Just letting all you iMiEV keeners know that Graeme bought some of the 93 Ah cells for an iMiEV upgrade and they seem to fit OK. Took a bit of jury-rigging to have them fit into the cradles, but once the BMS tabs are added it looks quite viable. 93 Ah in iMiEV cradle.jpg 4s 93 Ah in iMiEV cradle.jp...

All DC fast charging will be software disabled.
Considering supercharging is billed on the Model 3, I can't see why Tesla would insist on this...
It will also be disabled from fast charging with a Chademo or CCS2 adaptor.

No active battery management in a 2020MY EV in Australia is just about inexcusable in my opinion. But in saying that the Gen 1 is a great drive especially on the highway.

Just not for long... :-)
It should not really be a problem in Tasmania.
