According to the Daily Mail the ‘Mini teased an electric version of the current hatchback, back in August and is due to launch the production-ready version soon…..Engineers at the car maker fitted the once-collectible model with 30 lithium-iron phosphate batteries to give it a range capable of driving from London to Oxford on a single charge!
