What to replace i-MiEV with?

What about the Hyundai Ioniq Phev and EV? Is there a chance we will see them here soon? http://forums.aeva.asn.au/smileys/smiley24.gif The Hyundai dealer in Hobart has said they will be getting a charger installed later in the year for the introduction of the Ioniq. Optimistically, you may think th...

Plugshare - outlet types

I would say plugshare has sourced that information form tesla directly (location of destination chargers) so they've assumed that the information is true and correct and can't be removed or edited. That seems most likely - I'm aware that happens with Superchargers (Plugshare import details directly...

Slightly unrelated - what's going on here? https://api.plugshare.com/view/location/101159

It has a Tesla destination charger, but the box isn't ticked on the edit page. (If I tick it, the main box then tells me it has two Destination chargers!)

Ah, those icons. You can filter of course, click "more options" and choose just J1772 for instance.


Well, true.. but then it comes back to the same issue about people knowing what "3112" means and so on!

Well, the 120V site has gone! When I say "more icons" I mean the blue/green/orange icons. a 10A (2.4kW) socket and a 22kW destination charger are both green, and a 50kW Chademo and a 130kW Tesla Supercharger are both orange. But they are significantly different, in both deliverable energy rate and w...

Plugshare - outlet types

Does the naming of the various plug types on Plugshare annoy anyone else? "Wall outlet (3112)" - can refer to either a 10A or 15A outlet. The "3112" won't mean anything to most people. "Caravan mains socket" is a outlet not used any any caravan park in Australia (to my knowledge). "Blue Commando" - ...

I think due to the rate of new chargers appearing, it would be best not to re-invent the wheel. Plugshare is the best site out there, there is also Openchargemap but I don't believe it is as thorough.

I'm interested to hear what they say as well. When this happened in the US, Nissan supplied dealers with 3G hardware to be installed in place the 2G one.

Thanks for the calculations there photomac.

There's no mention of GST in your pricing?

I wonder if they mean crowd funding in the traditional sense, or large scale crowd funding at the corporate level (ie.
