The BMW Group has recently announced in a press release a new line of electric cars for their Mini line: the Mini E. The Mini E is a two seater electric powered car that runs on a rechargeable lithium ion battery. Those familiar with the Mini cars would love the familiar yet new design. The BMW Group will only product 500 of these Mini E cars by the end of 2008. Attached is the press release for more information.
Nice! Though don't jot it down on your Christmas wish list yet. Since production is only limited to five, BMW probably has filled up all their 500 orders. Nice looking car though. According to the specs on this baby, it has an acceleration of 0-100 km/h.
