Eeny MINI – mighty car
BMW announced October 18th, 2008, they plan to lease 500 electric powered MINI Cooper’s in the U.S. in 2009. Although very few details as to how to lease one of these was announced, they did say they would be leased in New Jersey, New York and California. Due to the size of the batteries, they will be two-seat models. The fully charged units will have a 150 mile range. BMW will be gathering performance data and we can speculate that more of these will be available if they are well received. (Only time and the grid will decide).
