Brits Looking for Drivers of Free Electric Mini-Es
ty drivers are being sought to take part in the second phase of trials of the electric MINI.
People living in a triangular area between Andover, Oxford and west London will be eligible. Those interested should fill out the online application form at www.electricMINI.co.uk.
The Government-backed trial, run by a BMW Group-led consortium including Southern Electric and the South East England Development Agency, will evaluate the technical and social aspects of living day-to-day with an all-electric car.
The 20 drivers selected will lease the two-seater MINIs – the space usually occupied by the rear seats is used to house the lithium-ion battery pack – from September 2010 for six months. Southern Electric will install a free home charging point for each car, as well as a network of public charging points, so the battery can be recharged away from their homes.
