Mini looking for 500 electric car drivers

As we reported 2 weeks ago, BMW is making an electric version of their popular “Mini Cooper” car. Now more information is available about their lease program. They are keeping advertising of the program fairly low key so they don’t have to turn too many people away.

The lease is only available in at 8 dealerships in California, New York, and New Jersey. The car requires special technicians which are only located at this small number of locations. The lease will include all maintenance and parts.

Formal applications will be taken for a 3-4 week period starting mid November, and delivery of the car will be in January. The cost of the year long lease is still not determined, but expected to be in the $500-600 range.

Interested? You can contact MINI here

Too bad I can’t get one in Texas, I would seriously apply for the lease.

I think this could be a big winner for BMW once they roll it out nationwide. The MINI is already a niche car for people that would probably like to go electric.
