  1. EV battery (and drive train) for off grid camper

    Off Topic and Banter
    there are a few people who have torn apart EV batteries for use in off-grid campers/RV's, I was wondering whether you could transplant the whole of a gen1 leaf or i-miev drivetrain into something like a sprinter van including the battery, charger and motor attached to the engine working in...
  2. Ion ESP/ASR warning lights

    General Groupe PSA EV Discussion
    Wife got a couple of warning lights on the Ion yesterday. When she got home I checked them out and it was the two ESP/ASR system lights that were on as a fixed light (not flashing). Funnily enough this morning they are now off. So checked the manual - see attached photo. ESP - Electronic...

  5. Goodbye to my written off I-Miev

    General Mitsubishi EV Discussion
    I only had my 9yr old 2009 plate I-Miev for 8-9 months, but it was an absolute adventure from the moment I collected it in Nottingham last year and brought it home to Scotland. After doing over 10,000 miles in it and pushing it too its limit in all weather and a daily 100 mile commute, it has...

    Other EV Makes and Models
    Is there anyone on this forum with expertise who can facilitate cell replacement on old I-Miev cars, that are fully working but have lost battery?

  7. I-miev rear seat

    General Mitsubishi EV Discussion
    Just taken possession of a 2011 i-Miev to replace our lease Zoe. It is in excellent condition except for one niggle I would like help with. The driver's side rear seat will not fold down and previous attempts in the car's past have stripped the release lever. Does anyone have experience of...

  9. Has my 8-yr old I-MIEV just recovered lost cells?

    General Charging Discussion
    So my recently acquired 8-year old 2009 Mitsubishi I-MIEV has a 16kW battery. I believe normally about 14kW would be useable, however I have only ever had approx. 10kW of useable battery. Last night I deliberately came home in it with very low batter (2 bars). I then left the heating on to try...

  11. IMIEV/C-ZERO/ION brake pipes corrode due to a lack of underseal

    General Groupe PSA EV Discussion
    The one problem with these cars is that the brake pipes corrode due to lack of underseal. The parts are not expensive, but the whole battery pack has to be removed to change them. THIS IS A £600 JOB!! If you are looking to purchase an I-Miev I would advise asking if this has been done! The...
  12. anyone thinking of fitting a clock in their Ion/CZero/i-miev?

    General Groupe PSA EV Discussion
    First posting on this forum, apologies if I make a mess of it! I've had my Ion for over two years now, and I love it deeply, but as all Ion/C-Zero/i-miev owners notice early on, our cars don’t come with a clock. I’ve looked on this and other forums but came up with nothing which ticked all my...
