First MINI E Delivered

The first MINI E has been delivered to a lucky owner in Southern California. Lucky for us, he has a blog!

The very first MINI E has been delivered to its very first customer. I am excited and humbled to report that the first MINI E was delivered to me this past Friday. As you will read below, these last few days have been a thrilling kick-off to my one year pioneering experience. There have been many pleasant surprises along the way including a very special car number – 111. Pictured above is my MINI E #111 on my front lawn near sunset this evening (more pictures will follow soon). However, being first to get the car means that I will be the first to return the car one year from now – but I’ll try not to think about that right now.

So far his impression is very positive. Click through to subscribe or read. I will be adding this to the MF News Room today as well.

Thanks everyone for sending this in!

    Funny you should say that. One day taking the kids to daycare, I smelled oil and though, “oh no, what’s gone south in my poor beat up Mini this time”…. Then I noticed that a MGB had gone past in the other direction, with that typical (for the era) slightly blue exhaust stream.. Made me laugh and think about how car smells have changed over time. Remember the smell of pink premium gasoline?

    Also, glad to see the Es finally making it into drivers hands…… Where’s Greg to say something negative about the whole deal? 😉
