3 i want this car!!!

"Now things get interesting: BMW, the corporate parent of Mini Cooper, has announced that an all-electric version of the Mini will premiere at the Los Angeles car show in January. Dubbed the MINI-E, the plug-in pocket-rocket will make 204 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque from a massive pack of 5,088 lithium-ion cells arranged in 48 modules, which hog all of the Mini's (already nominal) back seat space. Driving range on a full charge is about 150 miles; owners of the cars will get a high-capacity charger to install on their home electric grid that will allow a full recharge in about 2.5 hours. (Rumor has it that the battery pack is being furnished by Tesla, the maker of high-end electric roadsters.)" - Dwell Daily Blog


  1. they look fun to drive but i'm not sure i would want it as my everyday car. but if i ever need a car for a high speed chase through the streets of paris, then this is def it! lol

  2. this is a good car to go back and for to work in, or just to go out shopping for the weekend.

    i always wanted a cooper since the italian job, and this makes me want it more

  3. @1980 ---> why not drive like ur in a high speed chase in Paris ALL the time? lol

    @stew ---> yea, I've wanted one for a while too... I love that this thing gets 150 miles per charge and it takes less than 3 hours to recharge! that's like one class for me! perfect :)
