Mini E alternatives
Latest model: Mini E 2010
The all-electric Mini E will be powered by a 150 Kw (204 hp) electric motor fed by a high-performance rechargeable lithium-ion battery, transferring its performance to the front wheels via a single-stage helical gearbox nearly without a audio and completely no-cost of emissions. Specially engineered for automobile use, the battery technology will have a range of more than 240 kilometers, or 150 miles. The Mini E will initially be made available to select private and corporate buyers as part of a pilot project in the US states of California, New York and New Jersey. The possibility of product the Mini E in Mini Europe as well is currently being considered. The Mini E will give its world premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 19 and 20, 2008.

Putting some 500 vehicles on the road under real daily traffic conditions will make it possible to gain widely applicable hands-on experience. Mini Evaluating these findings will generate valuable know-how, which will be factored into the engineering of mass-produced cars.
The BMW Group aims to start series production of all-electric cars over the medium term as part of its Number ONE strategy. The development of high-tech concepts for mobility in big-city conurbations within the scope of project i has a alike thrust, as its aim also contains making use of an all-electric performance train.
