2020 Mini Cooper SE

The Electric version of the Mini is coming out. Soon.

Sure, there were a few hundred EVs produced based on the previous generation a few years ago.
But Mini chooses to call this one their first full EV.

I think this should have come out a long time ago.
It borrows a lot from the BMW i3. (Which is 6 years old...)

Even the range is similar to the updated i3. Mini claims 235 to 270 Kilometers (147 to 169 miles)
So this is probably, basically, a Mini version of the i3...
For Mini fans.
Which is fine.

I just wished BMW had found the way to squeeze a bit more miles out of their 6-year-old technology. 
You can now get over 250 miles from cars like the Chevrolet Bolt, Hyundai Kona Electric and more.
