Mini Cooper electric car testing

There has been a lot of buzz lately about BMW building a electric MINI for the US market. Some sources have it being available as soon as 2009, while others say it will be 2012. Recently CAR magazine in the UK spotted a test MINI, presumably electric.

Furthmore, the MINI electric is supposed to make its US debut at the auto show in LA next month. Based on the already cult like following of the MINI, this should be a home run for people who want an EV car but without the standard “Prius” looks.

This would definitely be a sweet EV car. I love the Minis already but I would have a really hard time not buying one if it was electric!

They really need to get the weight down on these first. For their small size they are pigs! But I agree and electric model would be nice.
