Car Magazine got a few pictures of an electric Mini driving by. The car had a stamp with 'hybrid' on it, but there is no tailpipe, which means (unless there is a tailpipe somewhere else) that it really is an electric MINI being tested.
Good news for those who want an electric car, certainly. But I wonder what the range would be like unless you have a really big battery (the Volt's battery, which will give you 40 miles on all electric power, is about 6 feet long). If you stick a really big battery into a MINI, where are you going to put the passengers?
Anyways, Jalopnik pointed the article out, but are reporting it as a hybrid because of the sticker. Am I missing something?
Car Magazine believes the electric MINI will be unveiled at the 2008 LA motor show in November.
