They actually make an all electric version of the Mini Cooper. However, they are not mass produced. They were released for a limited time a few years ago in California for a test run, but BMW never released them nationwide for sale. There have been photos taken of the electric being driven around in Europe, but BMW has yet to make a formal release.
The Mini E, a new electric car in development, uses a 201hp AC motor and lithium-ion batteries. It’s not yet on the market; an experimental fleet of 500 cars have been launched in California, New Jersey and New York. The factory claims the Mini E can accelerate from zero to 62mph in 8.5 seconds. It was successfully test driven at the Los Angeles auto show.
