Since BMW revealed the first info on the Mini E back in October there were 9500 people that signed to get info about the car. But only 500 people will have the chance to actually drive it. The lease price was set by Mini USA at $850 a month.
The Mini E is supposed to be capable of 150 miles on a single charge. The recharge will be done using a special wallbox which will need to be installed in a customers garage. The recharging time is 2 hours and a half.
The MINI E’s electric drive train produces a peak torque of 220 Newton meters, delivering seamless acceleration to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 8.5 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 152 km/h (95 mph).
