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.

MINI sent out a email news letter to people in the MINI E Field trial called PLUGGED-IN, this is suppost to be a weekly email to keep us plugged-in on whats going on with MINI E Field Trial. Im really glade to see this as we are all getting a bit anxious to get out there Driving. They emphasize the Field Trial nature of this program and refer to potential Drivers as Pioneers as in a previous email.

So whats the status?

Well inspections for Wall chargers are proceeding on the West Coast, and will start shortly on the East Coast. There is a problem with the production on the cable for the wall box, but they plan to go head with installation of the wall boxes and add the cables when they become available. They expect to start delivering Cars in May, so Im guessing I wont get mine until June :(

Also its official the big MINI lettering we've seen on the sides of cars used at shows and on test drives is just for shows and will not be on the Field Trial cars.
