First results from CABLED consortium

13 October 2010

The first six months of data from 25 drivers of Mitsubishi i-Mievs have been released today.

The CABLED consortium, which like EEMS Accelerate is part of the TSB's Ultra Low Carbon Vehicle Demonstrator programme, has today released results from the first six months of its trials.

The results, which are from 25 drivers of Mitsubishi i-Mievs, confirm that 'range anxiety' has rapidly decreased as drivers get used to the vehicles. It also confirms that most drivers charge the vehicles at night, and consortium partner EON has been able to gather useful, detailed data from the meters it installed in the homes of project participants.
