Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

Back to the weekend, considering I had nothing but time - I started doing a tear down to try and get all taxi equipment out. I'll share photos in a separate post in the future, Did you manage to get the roof brackets off? I've had no luck so far. Mechanic quoted me 400$. Says the interior lining ne...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

I also tried to remove the metal block form the roof and broke an Allen key too, so I assume those screws have threadlocker applied to it. I'm going to adventure in unknown territory and remove the roof trim, hopefully over the weekend. Does that mean even a mechanic wouldn't be able to unscrew the...

So here's some information that might be of interest. I live in Montreal, where Teo taxi was operating. Yesterday, I was looking for a place that could remove the taxi gear for me so I called up a taximeter installation company. Believe it or not, first place I call happens to be the place that was ...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

I started doing a tear down to try and get all taxi equipment out. I'll share photos in a separate post in the future, but I've torn apart as much as I can and while intuition got me as far as it did - a proper manual would be a god send at this point.

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

Driving that little you can get away with L1 charging. Does the price include the stock (or a replacement) L1 EVSE? I hadn't actually thought to ask, but I do plan on calling later today for clarification. Be aware that the AUX, USB port and left 120W "cigarette lighter" are likely not fu...

Re: Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016

Hi FueledUpRooster If it's the same tires as I saw on a few models in Toronto, those are not crappy winter tires, but upgraded all weather tires (Think snow tires you're allowed to use all year round). I'll leave it to others who know more about which tires are actually best for these EVs .. appare...
