Mini Cooper E

December 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.
