Here's another "let's try and drive a Mini-E from one end of the country to the other" stunt... This time it's the BBC (quelle surprise). Mini adventure: how far can an electric car go? - Why do BMW keep lending the cars out for these stunts? - Why do Elektromotive keep getting involved? - Is it really true that the Mini can't do the last 87 miles? If it shows anything, it's that the mass roll out of 13A charge posts is a huge short-sighted waste of money.
