I was saying to a friend that it will be interesting when folks start to trick out electric cars like hot rods - then I saw this Tesla P85D video showing passenger reactions as it accelerates - this is the explicit version so be prepared for a few F-bombs.
Report: A Longer Range, Current Generation, 2016 Nissan LEAF On Sale This Fall
A reminder that the EV car meeting is this Thursday at 4 pm at the fire pit at Harbour House. Come and share a refreshment and discuss updates in the EV world. I will be handing out the newly released "Etiquette Cards" to each qualified EV owner.
Hi Jim, looks like Nissan has built a vehicle to grid capable charger, but it may not be available outside of Japan. There is an easy DIY way to get limited emergency power from a leaf, through the DC to DC converter that powers the 12V system. Apparently it is capable of up to 1.7 KW, but I would limit it to say 1000 watts. Its easy to do, and can even be done with jumper cables and any common 12V inverter.
What did you had in mind?
Hi EV Folks,
I would like to initiate a project to investigate extracting power out of our Electric Vehicles for assistance during emergencies. The MIEV can do this with an optional accessory. I am interested in what we can do with other EV's, but esecially a Nissan Leaf. Is anybody interested in being involved with this project ? Please contact me at 7-5646 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
