MINI E – the quiet thrill
Everything old is new again. The younger generation may not realize it, but there were quite a few cars of the early 1900’s that were electric. Are they truly the future?
It was a quiet thrill to drive the rare MINI E over the weekend. Yes, the lack of the typical sounds of an internal combustion engine is initially startling. You know that the sound will be absent, but when you start it up, it’s time to remember that you are not in a golf cart. It is a fun drive and contrary to some of the professional writers/drivers out there, I thought it was great.
Only time will tell whether or not these will be the blockbuster seller that is envisioned. Ahhh quiet…..
