Pasadena, California resident Mark Winkworth is one of the 450 individuals in Southern California and the New York/New Jersey areas that made it through the MINI E screening process. After having received the word that he had been accepted back in May, he'd been waiting (im)patiently until this past Friday. At that point he got the call from his local dealer that car #053 was ready for pickup.
Mark quickly discovered the impressive acceleration that comes as a result of the torquey electric motor. Over the next 12 months, Mark will be documenting his experiences driving the British-German-American electric car at his new blog, So far there hasn't been much to report except that his neighbors are very interested in how the car performs. We, too, will be following the exploits of Mark and other MINI E drivers over the coming year.
