MINI Electric Bows At The Frankfurt Motor Show – More Live Pics & Videos
The MINI Electric Concept was one of the stars of this year Frankfurt Motor Show, but the lack of specifications for the upcoming model still leaves us wanting more from the BMW Group.
But we can still speculate a little!
Taking into consideration the 114 miles/184 km of real world/EPA driving range for the most current 33 kWh version of BMW i3, we assume that when the MINI arrives in about 2 years, it will easily be able to achieve at least 120-150 miles (190-240 km) of travel – otherwise it risks irrelevance right out of the gate.
The production of the plug-in MINI will take place in Oxford, UK, while the drive-train will be produced at BMW’s Dingolfing and Landshut sites in Germany.
As there is no expanded details, lets instead check out the photos and videos of the electric Mini from its debut in Germany this week!
The yellow highlights certainly remind us of the Mini E from 2008 (around 600 were made in partnership with AC Propulsion for test purposes and gather data prior BMW i3 introduction).
There are also many details related to the British roots of the brand, such as the “Union Jack” found in the rear tail lights.
