    Interesting read HERE

    Are we going to get an E and a ES? Similar to i3 and i3S?

    The verdict looks promising though

    I can definitely see one of these on the drive at some point in the future. I love petrol engines but I'm also very excited about electric performance. It wouldn't be cheap but an electric MINI for the mid-week and a GP for the weekends would make a rather ideal pairing.

    EDIT: The Autocar article looks very good indeed. I'm pleasantly surprised by the relatively minor weight increase and the minimal impact that things have had on the practicality of the car. The only negative that came to mind as I read the article was the rate of progress - if things have already improved to the extent mentioned then it won't be that long again until the current tech is significantly out of date.

    Ali, according to the article it was at the BMW Driving Academy in Maisach, Germany, just west of Munich.

    Yep, you're right Pete. Just from the top photo above it looks like Hammerhead but the ambient colours are all wrong. Dunsfold is far more bleak. Maybe the German test track has been inspired?
