TopSpin writes “BMW’s limited roll out of the electric version of its Mini has met with complaints from early adopters including less than advertised range, cold weather charging problems, bulky batteries and connection issues. Richard Steinburg, BMW’s manager of electric vehicle operations, assures everyone that the manufacturer is ‘learning quite a bit as we go.’ Drivers are paying $850/month for the privilege of helping BMW learn how to build EVs, while also helping BMW meet alternative fuel mandates so that other models can continue to be sold in select markets.”
