Electric Mini’s coming to California?

I once saw a story online about someone that had modded a Mini into an electric version of the car, but it looks like BMW (owner of Mini) will be coming out with their very own electric Mini.

Although it hasn’t been officially announced yet, Automotive News is reporting that 500 all-electric Mini’s will be coming to California. 490 of them will go on sale and the remaining 10 will be show cars.

Mini spokesman Cypselus von Frankenberg did not confirm the story, but did say that “BMW will announce whether it will build electric vehicles or not later this year.”

No word on pricing or availability yet but hopefully we’ll hear more before too long. A Mini seems like the perfect car to be offered in an electric model.
