EQ 009 - Say Goodbye to Frozen Charge Ports

If you charge your EV outside in the winter, how do you prevent ice and snow from getting in your charge port? Is there a solution to prevent water, snow and ice from getting in your charge port when you charge your car? The answer is yes, and you can learn all about it in this video about the MaCapuche.com charge port cover that is available for a variety of EVs (see link below). In this video I show you what the port cover is, how to install it, how it protects when covered in snow and ice, and how to remove it, all on done my Kia EV6 GT-Line Pack 2. *** IMPORTANT NOTE *** I am NOT affiliated, NOR paid by Guillaume or his company called Macapuche.

Wheels for EVs and Winter Tires

Can you use any winter tire on an EV? Is there an advantage to getting a wheel designed for EVs? Are some wheels made for winter use? Fast Wheels is a Canadian company!?! Yes, it is! I answer these and many other questions in this video. I bought new Fast EV wheels for my Kia EV6 for winter use, and I bought winter tires. If you want to know why I chose these specific wheels and tires, and if you want to know more about Fast because they offer more than just wheels, then this video is for you. ===== EV-olution Links ===== * EV-olution T-Shirts: https://www.ev-olution.ca/shop * If you feel like buying me a coffee... https://ko-fi.com/ev_olution My Web site: https://www.ev-olution.ca/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ev_olution_inevitable Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/evolutioninevitible/ Fast: https://fastco.ca/ Fast EV Wheels: https://fastco.ca/Fast-Wheels/Alloy-Wheels?wheelCategory=17 Fast Wheels: https://fastco.ca/Fast-Wheels/Home Replika Wheels: https://fastco.ca/Replika/Home Braelin Wheels: https://fastco.ca/Braelin/Home HD Wheels: https://fastco.ca/Fast-HD/Home I chose the Continental Viking Contact7 for my Kia EV6: https://www.continental-tires.com/car/tires/contivikingcontact-7?season=winter&cartype= APMA: https://apma.ca/ Project Arrow Canadian EV: https://apma.ca/project-arrow/ Tyre Reviews YouTube Video: https://youtu.be/YNjVsdbD998 And their article on the subject: https://www.tire-reviews.com/Article/2022-Tyre-Reviews-Studless-Winter-Tyre-Test.htm ======================== Credits and other links: Subscribe Button by MrNumber112 https://youtu.be/Fps5vWgKdl0 Music by Joakim Karud: https://soundcloud.com/joakimkarud - Like a tulip master Ioniq 5 footage: Hyundai USA https://www.hyundaiusa.com/us/en Cast wheel footage: How It’s Made on Discovery Channel https://www.discoveryplus.com/ca https://www.facebook.com/HowItsMade Flow formed wheel footage: Leifeld Metal Spinning https://leifeldms.com/en/home/ PMG Blainville test track footage: PMG Blainville and DroneStudio https://www.pmgtest.com/ http://www.dronestudio.ca/ 00:00 Intro 00:35 Fastco is Canadian and make what? 01:55 Who is Fast? 03:20 Fast makes wheels for auto makers! 05:15 Cast vs Flow Formed vs Forged wheels 07:45 More than just wheels 10:06 3D Scan Measurements = Guaranteed Fit 12:02 Safety and tire pressure 14:26 CNC custom fit wheels 16:08 Are they strong enough for crappy roads? 17:03 Wheels for EVs 23:00 Project Arrow 28:44 EV-olution Hoodies 29:20 How do you choose the right wheel? 31:04 Wheel load rating 33:19 Tire installation on my Fast EV05 wheels 35:00 Advanced tire balancing machine 37:52 Weight difference and savings 38:39 Installation of wheels on Kia EV6 39:54 Color matching nuts 40:26 Why and how I chose the Fast EV05 41:00 Winter approved wheels 41:39 Top 3 winter tires and my choice 45:24 Happy holidays and thank you 46:24 Bloopers
Can you rustproof an electric car?

Can you rustproof an electric car?

Is it safe to rustproof an EV? Will rustproofing void the warranty of an EV? Can an EV antirust treatment be done at any shop? If you have an electric vehicle and have been wondering about rustproofing it, this video shows and explains the details about having your EV protected the right way. A giant thank you to Steve Bolduc for opening up a time slot in his completely booked schedule, for the treatment of my Kia EV6. The objective of this was to create a video to help clear up the confusion some people have about having an electric vehicle treated with rustproofing. Specifically because some dealerships are misleading clients about it. DISCLOSURE: I paid full retail price to have my EV6 treated. I was not paid, sponsored, or given anything to make this video. ===== EV-olution Links ===== * EV-olution T-Shirts: https://www.ev-olution.ca/shop * If you feel like buying me a coffee... https://ko-fi.com/ev_olution My Web site: https://www.ev-olution.ca/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ev_olution_inevitable Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/evolutioninevitible/ ======================== CREDITS: Music by Joakim Karud: https://soundcloud.com/joakimkarud - Like a tulip master - No Worries (feat.

New Tuxmat car mats - Still the best?

New Tuxmat car mats - Still the best?

I installed the new Tuxmat car mats and trunk liner for my Kia EV6. Are they as good, better, or worse than the best car mats I have ever owned, the 2019 Tuxmats for my previous car, the Kia Niro EV? Tuxmat car mats offer the most coverage, the best protection, and an amazing fit. I have owned many cars over the last 30+ years, I have owned a variety of car mats from auto manufacturers as well as aftermarket mats, including Weathertech, but Tuxmat car mats are the best I have ever owned. NOTE: Tuxmat ships to the US and Canada, but does not ship elsewhere :-( DISCLOSURE: I bought the front and rear Tuxmat car mats at full price, with my own money. I did, however, tell Tuxmat I was going to make another review video and asked for the trunk liner mat and got it for free. Thank you Tuxmat. ===== EV-olution Links ===== ** EV-olution T-Shirts: https://www.ev-olution.ca/shop ** If you feel like buying me a coffee... https://ko-fi.com/ev_olution My Web site: https://www.ev-olution.ca/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ev_olution_inevitable Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/evolutioninevitible/ Tuxmat Canada website: https://www.tuxmat.ca/ ======================== CREDITS: Music by Joakim Karud: https://soundcloud.com/joakimkarud - Good Old Days Subscribe Button by MrNumber112 https://youtu.be/Fps5vWgKdl0 00:00 Intro 00:37 Full disclosure 01:03 Very cool thing for kids 01:50 Unboxing and differences 05:56 Clean and how to remove original mats 08:51 Installation of car mats 15:24 Accessory bag - Clips and Velcro 16:47 Where I put the retainer clips 17:26 Will water be an issue? 18:39 Front seat rail clearance 19:42 Trunk liner unboxing and installation 23:18 What NOT to do with the clips! 25:42 Two days later, location of all clips used 27:54 Proper clip placement in trunk 29:04 Solution for sliding EVSE case 30:09 My opinion and the advantages 32:35 Trunk liner disadvantage 33:04 Not for older cars 33:38 Join the EV-olution 34:36 Bloopers
