MINI WITH A BIG FUTURE
Built in Britain and guaranteeing 4,500 jobs at the firm’s Oxford plant, the new Mini Electric is the BMW Group’s big gamble on an emissions-free future. So far few details of the technical specification of the Mini have been released, but expect it to share much of the technology from the BMW i3. That car has around 180 miles of range. While the details may be sketchy, the design you see here – Union Jack tail lights and all – is likely to be very close to the production model that’s slated to arrive in 2019.
