All-Electric Mini Cooper On Sale Now!


Hybrid Technologies is officially selling electric Mini-Coopers! So, yes, you now can be on ojalafilms.com the road in a lithium-ion battery-powered automobile! Unfortunately, being the first generation, and a conversion car, it's not going to viagra fast be the best EV experience ever.

The car gets 100+ miles on a charge, has a top speed of 80 mph, takes 7-12 hours to charge and will live for roughly 1,500 charges. And, for all that, it'll cost you at least $65,000.

So, yeah, this baby isn't designed to usurp the internal combustion engine, but it is a lesson in what can be done. A year ago, when we first wrote about Hybrid Technologies' plan, the car would go 50% further, charge in half the time and cost $5,000 less. We'll have to wait and see if the upscale audience is really this interested in an EV. And if the major manufacturers can do better...for less.

not too shabby

That's just a bit over 4 years of battery life if you charge it daily.
That's almost 6 years of battery life if you only have to charge it 5 days a week.
It would be interesting to see what a replacement battery pack costs.

I want one!

The Mini has always been my dream car ...but it actually doesn't do that great on gas mileage. So now an electric version sounds perfect...that $65K price tag is a bit tough, though. A girl can dream....

Well its a 100 mile range, most people will charge it maybe 2 times a week for daily work commute. If you drive more then perhaps this is not a car for you. "almost 6 years of battery life" given the the best place generic cialis professional average driving distance of the average American driver thats not the case. Also remember the battery does not go dead after 1500 charges.

Well, it is cheaper than a Tesla roadster and unlike a Tesla, it is here and now.

At the end of the month I will have 20K in cash saved up to replace my aging 91 civic.

65K is a bit steep. If I had 65K for a car, as green as I am, I would probably use the money for a clean diesel ( or regular diesel, possibly set up to run on vegetable oil ) mercedes or BMW

Using your numbers, and if my math is right --- if I could get this car and use it for commuting to it's cool buy levitra in europe work only, it would last 83 years!!! smilies/shocked.gif

I commute 5 miles everyday (that includes to and low price viagra from work). After 20 trips, I would have to charge it up. If I charged once every twenty days, I would only have to charge it roughly 18 times a year. 1500 charges divided into 18 per year is cialis pills canadian 83 years!

So if I figure in other driving, I could still probably get 50 years out of it! How about that!?!? Never would have to by a car again....to me $65000 isn't bad after all....

And Harry, just think of the money you'd save on gas! Even for a 10 - 15 year car, and then maybe replacing the battery...

practicality
written by billy bob, June 17, 2008
making a normal car an electric car is flawed logic.

THey are just too heavy.

Electrical efficiency comes with weight saving, and the http://africa-info.org/levitra-50-mg saving is exponential.
this is one of cialis soft the reasons most electric cars are hideous. they are plastic bubbles.

if they can get the design right, using second hand plastics, then the public would be more interested in buying.

lighter cars do not just improve engine efficiency. lighter cars require less braking force = smaller / lighter brakes etc etc etc

the problem will be sharing the roads with daft behemoths. UK fuel prices will put a stop to that soon though!

So Do it Yourself
written by Jack Rickard, August 06, 2009
EV's are expensive, but they are a LOT of fun. We are providing videos of the entire process of converting a 2009 Mini Cooper Clubman to electric drive. We think it will do much better than the BMW with regards to range (the Clubman has more room for batteries) and performance as well. Videos at http://evtv.me/mini.html

The prices are really coming down on these. I know the Aptera sells for like 27k, although I hate the looks of it. I prefer the Tesla which is supposed to be working on a model to come in sub 30k which for me is the mainstream threshold.
