The Mini E and its entirely electric engine:
There are some issues...a lack of backseats and the fact they'll only manage 100-120 miles per full charge...though this won't be a problem for commuters. There's also the fact there'll only be 40 in the UK for testing...It's pretty amazing though that they've designed an eco-friendly car that's still 100% Mini. In other words great fun to drive. (Yes...despite not having passed my driving test I have driven a Mini!) I'd get applying soon if you fit the criteria. Check out details on the Mini E Field Test website.
