Electric Mini Cooper to launch by end of 2019

BMW AG’s first electric Mini will hit the streets by the end of the year, targeting urban buyers and giving the German manufacturer more ammunition to compete with Volkswagen AG’s ID.3 hatchback and Tesla Inc.’s Model 3.

The 32,500 euro ($36,400) car adds an electric motor and battery to the existing three-door Mini Cooper SE, which was developed with a battery version in mind, the Munich-based carmaker said Tuesday after unveiling the vehicle in Rotterdam. [Bloomberg]

What are we looking at here:
Range: 270 km (WLTP cycle) --> 180-200 km realistically
AC charging: 11 kW (it will take at least 5 hours to charge on a 3-phase plug, longer on a normal plug)
DC charging: 50 kW (yawn)
Top speed: 150 km/h (little slow there)
Price: R500,000 (in Europe) not including SA 25% import tax on electric cars

In summary: LOL
