Electric Minis on sale next summer

Nobody knows exactly when, how many will be available, their price, charge time, range, or pretty much anything about the electric vehicles BMW is planning on selling. But we do know that they plan on selling them, probably in about a year. Not really big news unless you were one of those people planning on investing in an electric car sometime in the middle of 2009. Oh wait, that’s me!

Let’s hope (for my sake) that they’re affordable. They might beat the rest of the auto makers, who are by and large planning to make their big electric push in 2010. [via Gas 2.0]
