London, England: A number of engineers at the Oxford-based manufacturer modified a classic MINI car like Mr. Bean’s car with 30 lithium batteries. With this battery, the MINI can travel a distance of 65 miles or 105 kilometers with a top speed of 75mph or 120 kilometers per hour.
This old car has sold more than five million units which marketed between 1959 and 2000 and is now an emission-free car. MINI made in 1960 is an icon that this European manufacturer will be ready to produce electric cars at the New York Auto Show.
MINI said: “With this unique vehicle, the MINI sends a clear signal that demonstrates its commitment to maintaining brand character by using technology to generate zero exhaust emissions.”
In appearance, this classic MINI uses staining like an old style, red paint is fitted with white on contrasting roofs and white stripes, with a yellow Electric MINI logo in the brand emblem and on the wheels. “Classic electric cars remain true to the brand, both in terms of visual appearance and its driver’s characteristics.”
Currently, MINI is working on a three-door electric mini version for sale next year; marking the 60th anniversary of Sir Alec Issigonis designed for the first time. The new MINI electric engine is designed at BMW Group’s electric car plant in Bavaria, Germany, before being integrated into the car at Oxford Plant, which is the main production site for the three-door Mini.
