Mini Cooper EDecember 10, 2008 at 1:35 pm | Posted in Transportation | Leave a comment
Evidently, BMW is getting on the electric bandwagon with the release of a new Electric Mini, the Mini Cooper E. 0 to 62 in 8.5 seconds and a 2.5 hour recharge for 150 miles – although I doubt you’ll get 150 clicks if you floor it all the time.
It’s just a 2 seater as the batteries take up the back seat – but there is cargo space. And only available on a 1 year lease, and only in the NY and CA areas. Not sure what that says about their expectations of the car.
Check out the photo Gallery in this Newsday article.
No references I could see on the Mini web site.
