Sorry about your i-MiEV and the kangaroo. That will sure not happen to me, since it will be very difficult to find one around here.

That's bad luck,
               though speed was low and it sounds minor and repairable. Open the bonnet and just make sure nothing has pushed back into the coolant tanks or brake fluid.

A pic or two of the damage would paint the picture more.

You never know. There is apparently a wild population of Wallabies near Paris, they might spread.

Joseph,

I see you spotted a red MX-5 with the WA number plate "198 VOLTS". I also see two other photos of this vehicle on that Facebook page. Whose it it? Any details? I can't seem to find any.

I thought I heard of somewhere in your part of the world where there was a small population of feral wallabies. Perhaps it was France or England.
Edit: Oops. Read on further and saw it is France.

Sounds like you need a bull bar and side bars fitted to your Imiev and I3 Image

something like this would be fitting for the ImievImage

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.
