haute news: the mini is going electric

BMW will introducing an electric version of its iconic MINI at the November LA Auto Show. Equipped with a 572-pound lithium ion battery, the MINI E reportedly has a range of 150 miles after an 8-hour charge. 204-horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque, 0-60 in 8 seconds and the top speed has been limited to 95 miles per hour. The entire car weighs in at a bit over 3,200 pounds and regenerative braking is used to extend the range. Body modifications are minimal, with unique badges and paint separating the E from its gas-powered siblings. On the inside, the gages are new: a multi-function unit in front of the driver, though the speedometer is still front and center in the middle of the dash.
