Default Mini Electric Concept

http://www.carscoops.com/2017/08/min...-with-new.html



A rather lame concept tbh, just weird colors and wheels that look like they came from a 1980ies Fiat added to the current car. I suspect though that the "Union Jack" rear lights will make it to the current model's facelift, as well as probably a similar DRL signature in the headlights. Otherwise we know now that there will be an electric MINI, which is hardly surprising GIven BMW's pioneering role (in Europe at least) with the "i" series, it#s actually surprising that there isnt a EV version of the Mini yet....

New Minis look worse (and more bloated) with every generation

Pointless concept without technical details. Where is the battery pack? And where the motor? FWD or RWD?

I strongly second that...

I'm starting to think they should pull a Scion and disappear again. I realize that's probably unlikely but I get no excitement from the brand. An EV should have been on sale from them for a while now...they've got 2.5-ish vehicles in their lineup total.
