BMW Set To Introduce Electric Mini: E Mini


The days of electric vehicles are finally upon us.  Come next year BMW plans to put 500 electric Minis on US roads.  The limited production number is a bit annoying, but in such a nascent market it’s probably financially warranted.  The all electric Mini, called the Mini E, will achieve a 150 mile range, an 8.5s 0-60 MPH, and a top speed of 95MPH.  To make room for the Mini E’s batteries the widely known 4 seater will be converted to a two seater.  Charging the vehicle will be as simple as plugging it to a regular outlet, although BMW will provide a rapid recharge box.

The Mini E is slated to arrive sometime in 2009 in California, New York and New Jersey for a 1 year test.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
