Electric cars are becoming more and more popular with major manufacturers. From Tesla’s Model S to the Nissan Leaf, it looks like electric cars are on track to become a standard option, and even classic brands are taking a swing at this bold new shift. MINI, which is known for its whimsical British flare, is now planning to hit the streets and join the quiet revolution in the electric vehicle world.
The first MINI was created in England back in 1959 in response to high fuel prices after World War II. The small car was engineered to be fuel efficient and has evolved over the years into an iconic image. Today, MINI is no less sensitive to the needs of consumers and is tweaking its approach to fuel efficiency again.
