Plug and Play!

By Bret Bodas, November 20, 2008

Automaker Mini, with help from BMW, have developed the Mini E. It is fitted with a 150-kilowatt electric motor that produces 204 horsepower, a high-performance lithium-ion battery pack (good for 150 miles on a full charge) and a single-stage helical gearbox that sends the power out to the front wheels. From a standing start, it will hit 60 mph in about 8.5 seconds; and reach a maximum speed of 95 mph.

Apparently, those who want one of these need to have a garage to park the car in and willing to pay around $800/month, one year lease.
