Mini E

Wed Dec 11, 2019 10:57 pm

Waaay too long after the test fleet of Tesla-batteried Mini E cars were parted out, a replacement arrives at essentially the same pricing that our I-MiEV launched at in 2011 (a $29k base model and $35k Premium edition). Of course, today that gets you twice the range, more than twice the power, and far better handling. About the only stat that the i-MiEV would still lead the subcompact EV class In is cargo space (and anime appeal).

2012 i-SE "MR BEAN" 110,300 miles
2016 KIA SOUL EV, 90 kW, 27 kWh, 34k miles
2000 Mazda Miata EV, 78 kW, 17 kWh
1983 Grumman Kurbwatt EV,170 kW, 32 kWh
1983 Mazda RX-7 EV 43 kW 10 kWh
1971 "Karmann Eclectric" EV 240 kW 19 kWh

i wonder what cells does it use for the pack. Was there a previous mini E that used tesla cells?

Are these related to or built by BMW? Maybe i'm thinking of the Smart Car--didn't it use a tesla pack.

i bought a module out of a Fiaat 500 e that uses Samsung SDI cells that i think bmw uses also.

Too many mini cars, i'm getting confused by them all
