Isn't ZEV Certification just for new cars manufactured?
This thread looks to me like either somebody playing lawyer on the Internet because their 2014 batteries are down to 89% capacity, or else they are fishing for a class action suit and trying to put together a case to waste the BMW legal department's time.
After having perused the 2015 warranty book a few times, I can find no mention that the BEV i3 is classified as a ZEV under CARB for warranty purposes. REx cars are classified as "Type IIx ZEV" under CARB. As a matter of fact, the nice table on pages 28-29 has a whole lot of references to footnote #1 (refer to the manufacturer's new vehicle limited warranty statement on page 17-18) for the items covered under the California Emissions Warranty Parts List on a BEV car:
BMW's lawyers like the term "conform at the time of sale" in the warranty book, with a 2/24K federal conformance warranty that surely will be over on just about every 60 i3 by now.
The REx models appear to fall under CARB Type IIx ZEV, but I'm not going to dig any deeper into the docs since I don't own a REx or have any interest in it.
Let me throw in my obligatory disclaimer that I am not a lawyer, and didn't sleep in a Holiday Inn Express last night.....
