Having recently purchased my 2011 52,000 mile iMiEV I would like to know if there is an existing owners club for the iMiEV and its clones? I think that it would be interesting to organise opportunities to meet with fellow owners at some national events.
Looking forward to reading your responses.

Paul, any chance you could read posts on AH capacity and report on your battery. You may need to purchase or borrow dongle. I

Welcome along Paul. Your probably best to look for a local or regional EV Club to be honest. Theres usually one you can join or look out for an EV meet up in your region or a green event of some kind with an EV element to it. We had an Ion for a couple of years and loved it.

Reality is that the i-Miev is not ideally suited to the longish journeys necessary for "national" get togethers : online forums are more realistic.

Well I did a Windsor to Edinburgh run last year just to get a decent service in Tweedmouth. I don't believe there are many MiEVs around but would be up for a coffee somewhere if en route.
Being semi retired I have time anyway and would consider a 200 mile round trip OK for a day return.
I am near Windsor but tour to West Wales,up the A1 and the South West but usually in a Soul.

That's one thing that's stopped me attending a number EV (not i-Miev specific) events that are on the order 70+ miles away. It's too much of a hassle to get there in the Ion with charging stops included (especially if I tried to take impatient family including 3 year old) and I'd feel like a traitor arriving in a 21 year old stinky petrol V6. :p (Although it would be a very comfortable and effortless journey :D )
