Re: Battery only cars

I don't know much at all about Mercedes but that was a total roll reversal. As long it achieves what you future plans are. We purchased a couple of battery bikes and take them on a few of are weekend trips on the back of our convertible. They have certainly been fun and shown us a lot more of our lo...

Re: 116D to 2 series Active tourer

Wellcome and you'll enjoy your new ride. No winter tires required down under in New Zealand only chains for our Ski fields every so often and the odd 1 or 2 times on some of our South Island roads.

Active Tourer is only sold in petrol now as most small BMW's diesels have gone.

Re: Found a surprise 12v power socket

You are correct as my RHD 225xe has 1 under the glovebox. The owners handbook which is LHD only shows 3 power sockets.

Re: Battery only cars

Your correct the whole place is a swamp but that doesn't go for 98% of America. What I've been told you get a lot less power drop by being underground with the lines.
Florida is off the world media, but it would be interesting to hear from Ev owners in the areas of Florida which were badly hit.

Re: Battery only cars

Hand pump in a 44 gallon drum of petrol works well. A haven't notice a truck load of 44 gallon drums of power.
America should have there power grid under ground by now.

Re: Battery only cars

The only government costs we have is yearly $100 licence fee for my 225xe and a $35 warrant of fitness inspection after 3 years from new. Insurance isn't compulsory. Mercedes has not had great media for service and reliability. I found the i3 steering not great which it shows up in tight areas. It's...

Re: Battery only cars

Hi there, yes it has been awhile. You would remember my experience with the I3 and how poor it drove as a drivers car. Wait until the i3 sport arrives this may be a better drivers experience. At least your can carry spare petrol in an i3. My 225xe has covered 17,000ks and 11,600ks of this was batter...

Battery only cars

With no power for possibly weeks in Florida. I bet all those who brought electric only cars are kicking themselves now.
You need to have a petrol engine as well in any plugin car.

Re: Space conditions in F45?

Thank you for your answer, Kiwi, which was not helpful at all. Your answer also proves that you didn´t read my post thoroughly. I´d choose the 225xe if I could, but it was not on the list from my company. The list is in my post, you can see it over here. Concerning environment, I could also tell yo...
