Mini Electric Vehicle Teased For The First Time

2019 MINI Cooper E

Mini has released a pair of exclusive detail design sketches as an initial preview of the first fully-electric model from the history-rich British brand.

The production model will be rolled out from Mini's Oxford plant 11 years after the Mini E went on sale with 600 total examples made back then.

MINI has posted the first design sketches previewing the brand's first all-electric vehicle.

"Mini is an urban brand and the fully-electric version is the logical next step into the future".

The unique vehicle was created by Oliver Heilmer, Head of Mini Design, and his team for the wedding of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex.

The company says the grille's "hexagonal form is a signature Mini design element, but the closed-off interpretation is all new".

Robinhood Adds Bitcoin Cash & Litecoin Trading, Will Support Crypto Transfers
Beginning July 12, 2018 , Robinhood Crypto users will be able to invest and trade Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash. Fintech startup Robinhood is expanding its cryptocurrency trading product with two new token listings.

Mini has opted for a gloss black design which looks reminiscent of the grille on early Tesla Model S variants but it has added two yellow strips and a new EV badge on to it.

Due to the grille being closed off, airflow is improved on the zero-emissions variant.

Mini has released first official teaser images of its forthcoming electric hatchback after having been spied nearly production ready recently. It will go on sale in the worldwide markets sometime next year after unveiling probably in the due course of this year.

The closed hexagonal grille and freaky asymmetrical wheels appear to closely follow design elements featured in the bold MINI Electric Concept, revealed late a year ago in Frankfurt.

They share the same motif from the accent bar on the grille and have unconventional asymmetrical design accenting gloss black with yellow.
