Thanks for making the video! Much appreciated. Removing the shift knob is no problem but no matter what I try I can't even start to lift the console. Either I'm weak or it has stronger clips. :)

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

So I was emboldened to pop off the housing around the shifter. Was not too hard to pop off the shifter knob in neutral, and pull the console out and up... Ah. So from your description and photo it looks like the top of the housing needs to be pulled toward the rear of the car first and then up. I w...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

Hey everyone, So I decided to take the wiring out of the car today and found the SECOND KEY FOB and the AUX/USB unit completely intact! The FOB was so exciting to find, they had it connected around one of the NFC wires by winding the wire around the fob about 15 times, very odd.... If anyone is goi...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

The highest range I had seen om my 2018 former taxi until the other day was 177km. After bringing down enough to go into Turtle mode, I did a full charge and got 187km. This morning after topping it up for a trip it reported 191km range. It would be nice if this trend continues!

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

As another data point, I bought one of these former Teo Taxi taxis. But it is a 2018 with 36k km on it rather than a 2016. It had most of the common issues mentioned previously with regard to wiring and missing items although the wiring tended not to be disconnected, rather it was just 'tapped-into'...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

Can anyone else who picked up one of these taxis report !ack on whether they get am radio reception, XM reporting the antenna is disconnected, aux is always connected, and the gps system is about 1+ km off where you actually are. I'm compiling a list of mods to try to help anyone looking at these c...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

... And I just signed up for the EV rebate class to get another $1,000 off (don't tell him that) :) This is the Plug 'n Drive Incentive program for used EVs. Anyone purchasing an EV to be registered in Ontario is eligible. I have received my certificate. :) I would also suggest joining EV Society (...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

I think most (all?) of these cars from Teo Taxi were purchased by dealers through Adesa auctions. As former taxis, they have the issues of commercial use (high mileage, more charge cycles, etc.) and would have had the white with bright green paint jobs of the taxi company. They also had radio equipm...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

Hi all, I live near Toronto, and have a 60km each direction commute, almost all highway. So 120km round trip... You will gain about 8 km/hr when charging Level 1 at work but probably a bit less than this in winter. I'm not sure how much less - perhaps someone with more experience can comment. But i...
