Thermal imaging cameras allow us to see heat (or lack thereof). In this video, Mitsubishi i-MiEV owner Ben Nelson uses a thermal imaging camera to explore what little heat exists within the i-MiEV
I take a look at the heat in the Mitsubishi iMiEV electric car using a thermal camera!
The Mitsubishi iMiEV uses a liquid-based heating system, similar to a gasoline car. Unfortunately, the heater takes some time to warm up, and isn't as efficient as it could be. Some other electric cars use heat-pumps, which are more efficient. Due to the typical winter weather where is live in the northern part of the United States, I'm planning on adding an aftermarket combustion heater to the car. That will let me use my existing electric heater or burn alcohol for additional heat.
