Re: Next EV?

My B-class lease ends in 8 months. I can’t go back to a gas burner, just can’t, so I’m going to have to find an EV replacement (the RX hybrid is my wife’s). I would be interested in either the Kia Niro EV or Hyundai Kona EV. Surprise, surprise - neither will be offered in North Carolina (I emailed b...

Re: Brake light activation during 1 pedal driving?

I will say that compared to other EVs which do illuminate the taillights when using aggressive regenerative braking (e.g. Tesla, BMW i3), the regen on the B-class, even in D-, is no where near aggressive enough to be considered one pedal driving. So I’m actually kind of glad the brakes don’t light u...

Re: Level 1 EVSE fault

I almost don’t care if the warranty covers it. I can get by without it and dealing with Mercedes has been such a hassle where I live that it’s not worth trying to get a new charger. Just gotta tough it out until I get another EV in October. My bigger problem is what EV to get to replace the B-class....

Re: Level 1 EVSE fault

Thanks for the advice. My car still charges fine with multiple other Level 2 EVSEs so I think it is just the Level 1 unit that came with the car is busted (didn’t realize it was called Lear - I couldn’t find any branding anywhere on it). I think that I will probably just make do with public charging...

Re: Brake light activation during 1 pedal driving?

Can confirm that the brake lights are NOT lit by regeneration in D- at any speed. Source: my wife, driving behind me on city roads and highway roads, when I asked her to check specifically for this. I drive in D- at all times, and I do wish it was a bit more aggressive for true one-pedal driving.

Level 1 EVSE fault

The level 1 charger that came with the car is throwing a funny error message after I plug it in, and won’t charge anymore. The top light is blinking red, and the bottom row of four lights blinks a repeating pattern of 3, 2, 1 lights. At first I thought it was the 110v outlet at the parking garage at...

Re: New to me

I’ve been very happy with the car. No battery issues, though the range is pretty comparable to a first-generation LEAF. Not long range, and without quick charge capability, it’s really limited to being a commuter car. But it’s a very comfortable, solid, and peppy commuter car. My kids love the back ...

Re: website outage

Sigh, I miss EVAccess for iOS. It’s been gone from Apple for a while. The Mercedes web app is so terrible. MyB isn’t much better.

Re: MyB available at the App Store

Former EVAccess user here, but it’s broken permanently. Switched to MyB. Does anyone know how to display the time that the charge will be completed? All I really get out of this app is a current charge percentage and whether it’s charging currently.

Re: Sunglass holder

My 2014 (totaled) had a sunglasses holder, and my 2016 does as well. I have prescription sunglasses and I use the holder all the time. It's a shame if it's been taken out of the 2017. I wonder if it's part of a trim package.
