Finally I managed to get the approval and the official license plate on Wednesday 13th December 2017. I am very happy that everything went well in the second round. The chief expert tested the Electric Mini even on the motorway and reached a maximum speed of 120 km/h.
This is the link to the corresponding agency / authorities: strassenverkehrsamt.lu.ch
So far I did some test runs in Lucerne and its surrounding. I can summarize the first impressions and outcomes as follows:
|Range (calculated with consumption and battery capacity)||73 km|
|Acceleration / Speed||No problem to follow traffic|
|Problems||1.) Voltage drop during heavy acceleration in 3rd gear. Converter starts to limit.
2. ) Battery pack needs to be better balanced
Keep you posted ….. take care …. Erich Butler
