First off let me say that I like electric cars… and… that this one is going to be almost impossible to get your hands on. The Mini E ($TBA) is going to be released early next year in the Southern California, New York and New Jersey markets… only 500 units… and…as a lease only. Bummer! The Mini E will go from 0-62mph in 8.5 seconds and has a range of about 150 miles. I hope this doesn’t end up like the EV1.
