  1. Mini electric makes huge fun. It is hard to understand why there is a mini even as a burner. A mini is an ideal urban car, which could run the electrical rank to a zoe smoothly, if there are not the price differences. But Mini is different league. He should receive a little more range in the future.

  2. Looks really good but still burning platform, even here again as long as the entire vehicle is not planned on emotion is the nix ..
    Alone a vehicle completely has its own E platform can bring up to 100km and the room gain in the vehicle.
