Re: Ran out of gas but depleted battery got me home

It's beginning in the UK, but on our motorways you probably only need about a 10 mile range boost to get you to the next services, where there should be a charging point. I'm not sure how well this concept would work on the prairies. :) In most places 10 miles doesn't even change the view :) I thin...

An increasing number of breakdown trucks are carrying large batteries that can be used to provide enough charge to get an 'empty' EV to the nearest charging point.
Were are you seeing this? It's a good idea. What would it take, time wise, to do this much charge?

Re: Ran out of gas but depleted battery got me home

Cool to know. Hope I don't see the same thing :) Living in a rural area I would be so afraid to own a pure EV. Run out of "gas" in one of those an expensive tow is the only option. At least with the PHEV you can still put a gallon of gasoline in and make it home or to a charge point. With all the ch...

Re: Battery Health Check procedure - correct method?

The displayed range is a guess at best. It's all dependent on what temp of the battery is, use of climate control, what kind of driving you do, terrain, traffic, speed, etc. The car's computer generates this value based on past driving ... the meter is called a "guess-o-meter" ... lots of links on t...

Re: 2018 Canadian PHEV wont run in ev.

As far as the relay upgrade goes, it is my understanding that is just a beefier relay and should not make a difference. They also had to replace the fuse/relay compartment cover with one which was a bit taller since the new relay bumped against it. Do you know for sure there were software changes wi...

Re: What fuel consumption can I expect on 50mile run on motorway?

I may be late for the party around this discussion ... but I travel about once a month to a nearby community 100km away. We live in the mountains and the road is a bit hilly, certainly not flat. I travel, usually with the cruise on, at a steady 105 km/hr. What I try to do is to use the PHEV default ...

Re: Cheap car to give driving lessons

For the sake of your sanity; the sake of your relationships with your spouse and/or children; the safety of your fellow citizens ... never teach family members how to drive.

Enough said.

Re: Check engine lite code p0a45

The car does not have a transmission ... so you're safe in assuming that it is not the transmission :)

Power tailgate locking

Is it possible to lock the car and close the power tailgate with one action? On my 2020 (Canadian) I want to do the following: - from inside, pop open the tailgate using the console switch, - remove a heavy object (a saxophone case) with one hand and hit the close button on the tailgate, .... all go...

Re: Can you run the air conditioner without running the engine?

You may be able to keep the running lights off by enabling the electric park brake before starting the car.
