All-electric MINI E plugs-in to Auto Show

All-electric E plugs-in to L.A. Auto

In a further sign that drive vehicles are headed for the BMW Group will showcase a battery powered version of the at next month’s Los Angeles Show ahead of a pilot that will see 500 of the cars on US roads in 2009. Based on the MINI Hatch, the MINI E initially appear in two-seater with rear seats to make way for the battery pack. than an in-hub motor an electric motor mounted the bonnet drives the front through a single-stage helical derived from the Cooper S, and all-electric, the full power from a standing start quite adequate acceleration of mph in 8.5 seconds with a top speed to 95 mph.

To conserve energy and help greater range (which is at an impressive 150 miles), the MINI E a regenerative braking system linked to the accelerator. Release the and the electric motor acts as a feeding the kinetic energy into the system. Getting to such a system takes a time as we learned during our of similar technology found in the electric scooter. but once become accustomed to staying off the it’s remarkably easy to it in the majority of driving situations.

In the of the MINI E, BMW estimate that if you can use it in traffic for around 75 per cent of all the car’s range can be extended by up to 20

If you do need to hit the anchors, the car’s system also comes a newly developed electric and the Electrical Power Assisted (EPS) is the same as the one used in MINIs.

The lithium-ion storage unit is made up of 5,088 cells into 48 modules and packaged three battery elements. It has a capacity of 35 kilowatt hours and transmits energy to the electric as direct current at a nominal 380

Recharging is via a standard power but a high amperage wallbox be supplied as standard that speed up the full recharging to just two-and-a-half hours. The is designed to be installed in the customer’s though only lockable or similar buildings will A full recharge draws a of 28 kilowatt hours of electricity the grid which translates to one hour per 5.4 miles and information on how charge is left in the system is to the driver via a battery level behind the wheel.

Design-wise, the MINI E still like a MINI. All of the car’s for the pilot project will the same dark silver on the panels and a silver roof a large yellow power logo. The same logo is emblazoned on the the front and back of the the charger port lid (a handy in-case you try to put petrol in), the and the dashboard trim.

The 500 MINI slated for the US trial will be at the company’s Oxford and Munich before being shipped to New York and New Jersey for testing by and corporate customers on a one-year The cars will then be to BMW for comparative tests. Because tools and qualifications are required for the vehicles, MINI will set up a dedicated service base for in each of the states.

So the options appear to be steadily for those looking into the ZEV lets just hope renewable energy infrastructure can pace so that we can enjoy zero-emissions motoring — no emissions at the tailpipe or the power — sometime in the not too distant
