Charger Plug

I installed the charging plug on my EV today!

I also went on a few drives today to collect more data and figure out what to do next. I have figured out how I am going to wiring in my heater, but next is getting the new EV plates. Once I get the new plates I am going to get an alignment and my rear suspension adjusted. I will also need a new inspection, so for fun I am going to bring it down to the Honda dealer and see what they do!

I am expecting to start full time commuting in the EV next week, or even this week if I get the new plates and heater running tomorrow.

I still have small things to do on the EV, like a proper AH counter, but for now I am extremely pleased and can't wait for full time commuting!

  1. Hi David,
    landed here from a link in Ecomodder, looks like you've just got to the exciting phase of your project, drive time. I'm curious about your reference to "getting the new EV plates". Could you elaborate on your state's vehicle regulations. I'm from Australia and we have inspection requirements to ensure compliance....but no subsequent changes to registration "plates", do yours offer a publicly visible indication of "EV" internals?
