Still alive
Zoe has been working great. I have well over 10.000 km on the clock now and the only issue I've had is the "Check ELECTRIC System" error which occasionally pops up on the display, but apparently it's much less serious than it sounds and nothing to do with t...

EV meet-up and time for a Zoe

C-Zero 12V battery relocation
I don't think I've actually told you where I relocated the 12V aux battery in our C-Zero. I did put the fuel burning heater where the 12V lead acid battery usually is. From there, and the positive battery terminal, I ran a 16 mm2 red cable into the cabin th...

Heating my EVs
I'm sure I've covered the heating in both of my EVs, the cars at least, in previous posts, but I though I'd write a new one about them and how they've been doing. As you may or may not know, I heat both of the cars with ethanol. In Finland it's easy to get ...
