Where else but at Popular Mechanics would you see a test drive of an electric MINI?
>What may come as a surprise to anybody interested in driving electric is that you can have one of these vehicles right now, for about $50,000. The week after they let us drive their electric roadster, Hybrid Technologies brought a lithium ion-powered Mini Cooper by our New York offices for a test drive (see video) to show us, not the future of electric cars, but the present. Hybrid avoids the cost of developing a ground-up electric vehicle by ripping the powertrains out of standard vehicles and replacing those guts with electric innards. (Watch video of the test drive, story continues below.)
For the 100% premium, you will get a car that can go roughly 200 miles on a charge and has a top speed of 120MPH!
