Mini E an electric car for me


Mini E concept – LA Auto Show – Coming Soon, Mini’s Electric Kool Aid Test – List – NYTimes.com

A reason not to bail out companies like GM.

My favorite quote from the NYTimes piece:

While General Motors has been plodding along and burning through the dollars developing its Chevrolet Volt “extended-range” electric vehicle (now due in late 2010), Mini, with help from its parent, BMW, took a mere 10 months to develop the Mini E.

Why does our auto industry find it so hard to respond to the needs of its potential customers? Not only has Mini responded they have done it quickly.

The battery takes up a little too much space but mini will work it out. I want one.
