Mini Electrifies
#1
MINI has announced plans to electrify, and is in the late stages of development with a new plug-in hybrid MINI. It seems BMW is (more than most) embracing electrification with both hands.

Does anyone remember the old MINI-e trials, when MINI took out the back seats, stuck in massive battery packs and issued 100 cars for trial? Apparently the battery pack was large enough to offer 200-miles, but they restricted it to 100 for a reason I'm not sure of. If anyone knows why, it'd be great to hear. Ultimately, as we know, the BMW i3 was the real result of the trial. It'd be great to see an all-electric MINI in the future and the announcded PHEV is certainly an encouraging step towards this.
