    I hope they bring it to America. Considering that BMW is making it, I hope it ends up being a genuinely nice car. Not some Smart Fortwo.

    Good news indeed.

    just wait for the PARIS auto show in four weeks in FRANCE.

    The socks of many EV wannabes will be blown of for good
    by a avalanche of economically drivable EV city cars by many experienced producers.

    Not sure if this is the same "Mega city" car since it is now in France.

    It sort of does here (they used to be distributed by NICE).

    Does anyone know more of this 200 mile regulation?
    What of cars like Mini-E, CODA, Leaf, etc, that don't beat 200 mile range ?!

    Never heard of such a thing.

    Maybe there is some greater ZEV credit for a car with 200 mile range.

    I think I remember reading about that 200 mile range thing a while back. Yet another way CARB was/is trying to favor HFCVs.

    Sounds like "must have" was too strong a phrase to use... More like "will have more incentives if it has"...

    So is this where the Mini E project is leading?
