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.

Assignment 01

MINI sent out our first homework assignment, well if only school had been this easy. They've setup a web site for those in the field trial on which they will be asking us to fill out a journal, and upcoming survey's. Our first assignment was fairly simple, just needed to sign in and make a journal entry. From the picture above you can see some of the upcoming assignments, Subconscious Symbol Identification sounds foreboding, hope a psychiatrist doesnt see my answers, Im not sure I like the idea of BMW getting a peck at my subconscious. :)

Also got a notice that the wall charging cables are shipping to both coasts, so Ill probably have a working wall charger soon. Ill be glade to charge up quickly, but was sort of hoping for a second month with the lease payment waived.


  1. Yes, that 2nd lease payment waiver would be nice.

    Funny, I did not get a homework assignment. But really, a journal entry on THEIR web site? Can't they just crawl and copy all our blogs????

    BTW, I made it back from work with 5 miles/11% on the readout. I'll update my entry later.

  2. I did not get the homework assignment either. I'm getting estimted range close to 115 miles driving on back roads. I need to start blogging as soon as Verizon gets my DSL up. They are two weeks late.
