BMW unveils an all-electric version of the classic Mini – its third electric Mini concept Fred Lambert - Mar. 28th 2018. Electrek

For a while now, BMW has been saying that its next all-electric vehicle after the i3 is going to be an electric Mini, but instead of unveiling the production vehicle, the German automaker has been unveiling electric Mini concept vehicles one after the other.

This week, it is unveiling the third concept electric Mini vehicle: “the classic Mini Electric.”

An all-electric Mini is probably the most long overdue electric vehicle.

Not only it’s an ideal segment to electrify due to its size and functionalities, but BMW’s early EV program, the Mini-E, BMW’s first EV concept, was based on the Mini.

Takes hours to charge...more about home charging

This applies to home charging, the efficiency of which is limited by the Domestic power supply connected to your dedicated EV Charger.

A view from America Court Nederveld. Clean Technica

I’ve been an advocate for EVs since restoring a 1994 USElecticar Chevy S-10 in 2009. I’ll admit my time horizon for wide adoption of EVs at that time was decades out. Little did I realize that two players would appear Nissan with the Leaf in 2011 and Tesla with the Model S in 2012. Hindsight provides the opportunity to see this as a one-two punch to the traditional auto business. Nissan targets the average car buyer in a traditional manufacturer/dealer environment. Tesla takes aim at the high-end luxury segment in a nontraditional manufacturer direct to consumer format.

The History of ICE

The vast majority of vehicle owners today obtain power from  an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE). The ICE is a genius and incredibly complex piece of engineering but it comes at a cost.

EVs – the problem and the opportunity

The ICE emit poisonous chemicals which are harmful to our planet and our people.

ICE vehicles are powered by controlled explosions in a confined space, when a car is powered at 6000 RPM that represents 12000 explosions in one minute, or 200 per second in a typical 4 cylinder engine, in a V8 that number doubles to 400 per second.
