The All Electric Mini Cooper

BMW released the first images of the all electric Mini E. There has been buzz about it before and it was simply a matter of time before the public got to see it for the first time. It comes with a 204hp electric engine, regenerative braking, and an astounding range of 150 miles.

The Mini E will use lithium-ion battery technology. Unlike the new Honda Insight, the Mini E will not have a gas engine. The car will only use the batteries to power the car. The top speed will be limited to 95mph to further save energy.

The Mini E will not be available immediately. BMW will first conduct a limited test run of 500 to research the market for a vehicle of its kind in cities such as New York, Los Angeles, New Jersey, and possibly London. I think most readers of this site would agree that such a test is uneccessary. If there are any executives at BMW reading this…”we want one!”
