From June 2009 to June 2010 I had the privilege of Driving an All Electric MIMI E for a year, it was a great experience, and got me hooked on electric cars. I've since moved on to other electric cars which I will blog about.

This isnt the MINI E, but it is a prototype MINI thats a Extended Range Electric Vehicle similar to the Chevy Volt that means its electric and runs on bateries for a limited range then a gas engine kicks in and generates electricity which powers the motor for longer ranges.
This MINI is also super fast they quote 0-60 times of 4 seconds, its also really cool how the electric motors are in the wheel.


  1. Hey - thanks for reaching out to me. It's nice to meet a fellow Field Test Participant. Can't wait to get behind the steering wheel!

    I'm adding your blog to my blogroll and will definitely keep in touch!


  2. Thanks Elia,
    hope to be in contact with other MINI E drivers in the coming months
