>Itâ€™s understood that BMW boss Norbert Reithofer will unveil the battery Mini at the 2008 Los Angeles motor show in November â€“ the perfect location for the carâ€™s public debut.
Hybrid technologies has been building an electric MINI for quite some time. Pricing for that car starts just north of US$50,000. Let’s hope BMW and MINI can bring this one to driveways for quite a bit less. This also jives with our production update posted in July.
Also worth noting are the blacked out headlights first seen on the One Millionth MINI. We’ve heard several rumors that these may be showing up later in the life-cycle of the current generation and this could be the first evidence of this. Could this be one of the many small exterior changes we’ll see in the mid-cycle refresh next year?
