The eMini exudes fairground feel to it

you Believe in folklore, then the Last will be First. However, in the BMW Group it is the other way around. At least, in terms of electric mobility. Because after Mini has played about ten years ago, the pioneers and with a small-scale the technology for the revolutionary i3 tested, have drawn Bayern in their British subsidiary to quickly restore the plug-in and more petrol-and Diesel-fed. But now, finally, they must also be in Oxford on the electricity and bring the end of the year the Mini Electric on the market. With at least half, more likely a whole Generation of late, he has to roll up the back of the field and its place in the load column of the first fight.

the British, put on three properties that have also made the normal Mini for the duration of burner: strong character Design, which will differ only in Details, such as a closed grille and a rear apron-without tail pipes, and a playful interior with plenty of built-in British humour during the programming of the infotainment system in the LED Jukebox and a driving behavior that is close to the go-kart or better on the bumper cars.

Unusual silence

Because even if the Mini sounds at the Start like a space ship before Lift-off, he feels the Kickdown like a Cooper S at the Start of the Rallye Monte-Carlo. While a new traction electronics prevents Scratching of the front wheels, instead thereof, he would not let the traffic light sprint even a M3. And even if the car is feels much heavier with the batteries in the floor is a bit taller than the normal three-door, is he fed up and stable on the road and, as usual, ragged around the corner.

From 0 to 100 pass little more than seven seconds, and that in 150 cases, interferes with today already nobody. A lot more you have to get used to the silence after you've just made the Mini a bit of a ruckus. And of course, the brakes take some getting used to. Because the Mini has programmed two different recuperation stages for the E-Motor and makes the car either endless sailing and so much energy, that it actually is after a few metres to a stop and the foot brake.

Bubbly and fun, and all without a guilty Conscience – so the city will be the year of the market, and behind the wheel it actually feels like in the car, the scooter, the Fun with the shoving, you can be better. Finally, the Mini E will cost probably around 35'000 Swiss francs, if, at the end of the year, the first copies to come on the road.

If the customer's daily average of 40 kilometres, you come up with a battery charge by the week.

The technology for this dates back to this time – at least this is a kind of poetic justice – the latest evolution of the BMW i3. Of him, the Mini E takes over the 96 Lithium-ion cells with a capacity of 33 kWh, which are mounted in the center tunnel and under the rear bench, so that the already scarce interior space is not diminished, and also the electric Motor for the front axle comes from the i3. He comes on around 190 HP. Exact Figures don't want to back out of the Mini. But if you can take the i3 in fact, as a benchmark, then the battery-powered Brite would be a good 200 miles – significantly more than the Smart ED, but less than rivals like the Renault Zoe, it's been there for years, or the Peugeot 208, which would put the city first.

you know, of course, also in Oxford and Munich. But you comfort yourself over with a look in the statistics: Because the Mini is the Smart the maybe urbanste car, the customers per day, on average, less than 40 kilometers on the road – and come up with a single battery charge, in the ideal case, through the entire week. And as for the late Start, so the Manager just hope that you will come to the market, if the business with the electric car attracts at last. And that you can turn to the vernacular, the word – and the Last in fact, be the First.
