MINI Electric review

NGC verdict 08.12.2008

As the first product of 'Projekt i' for BMW, a remarkable electric Mini not only introduces a clearly defined market sector but provides real-time responses to shape the Mini's future and Iain Robertson drove the $1million car exclusively.

Unveiling an innovative new car at the Los Angeles Motor Show is hardly a great way to make motoring headlines in the UK. Yet, when that new car is as revolutionary as the Mini E, creating a test drive opportunity became a priority. Hence, my drive to and from Munich, BMW's headquarters and an 'electric' drive in a remarkable Mini.
