Happy Thanksgiving everyone, I hope you had a great holiday.
I have already experienced how much fun it is to drive BMW’s MINI Cooper and soon I could be driving one of the most environmentally friendly efficient cars at the same time.
I had read the news that BMW was soon to introduce an all-electric version of the MINI but I wasn’t going to get my hopes up. The new electric-powered MINI E, however, as displayed at the 2008 Los Angeles Auto Show, just blew me away. If they can keep the costs under control, this car will be a true winner. It can go 0 to 62 in 8.5 seconds, travel 150 miles on a single charge, and reach a top speed of 95 miles an hour.
The first version will carry two passengers and will require an additional “fast charge” box that will reduce charged time to about 2 ½ hours.
