It seems like just yesterday that the MINI brand showcased its MINI Electric Concept car at the IAA Cars 2017 show in Frankfurt, Germany. This cutting-edge vehicle possesses the MINI brand’s iconic looks and thrilling performance, with one major difference: it runs on 100% electricity.
Needless to say, the MINI Electric Concept was the talk of the event, and the excitement carried over to the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, where the MINI Electric Concept was showcased for an American audience. This vehicle’s appearance at both shows prefaces the MINI brand’s upcoming presentation of an all-electric series-production model in 2019 – an automobile that will represent the next generation of urban personal mobility. Our MINI Cooper dealers serving Peabody, MA are impressed with the MINI brand’s vision for the MINI Electric Concept vehicle, and how it will positively impact city driving via its powerful, zero-emission electric motor, finely-tuned suspension, exceptional steering and handling, and aerodynamic body design.
Of course, the advancements made by the MINI brand will come as no surprise to fans of the automaker. It was 10 years ago that the MINI E was introduced as the brand’s first all-electric car, one that was subject to a comprehensive field trial during which it was piloted by 600+ private drivers worldwide, in everyday traffic conditions. The insights since gained by the MINI brand have been invaluable in the design of the MINI Electric Concept and the company’s forthcoming all-electric production vehicle.
Just like a MINI Cooper S, the MINI Electric Concept stresses functionality, character, excitement, and style. The concept car, of course, has its differences, including 3D-printed aerodynamic inlays and MINI E badging. But it’s a MINI vehicle at heart, one that will be on the road before you know it!
