After 36,000 solar-powered miles, MiniE driver ready to make the switch to BMW ActiveE (and an SUV)
The ActiveE is not cheap, and so Norby's wife will be the main driver for the single ActiveE the family will get. Norby made a video about his sunset (get it?) with the MiniE and talks about how even though Julie is not the early adopter type, the ActiveE will suit her just fine on her 45-mile roundtrip commute. Norby writes:
The video is available after the jump, and we particularly like the edit of some 1950s (?) informational movie in the middle. Well played.
I wish we could afford two electric BMW ActiveE cars but at this early stage, we simply can't afford two payments. We also have yet to wear out our small 2008 SUV. It's Julie's turn next and she is very excited as she waits for her new car, the ActiveE. I'll get to drive it at night and on weekends so I'm not to bummed about it.
