Mini to focus on performance, not range

There are some new reports coming out of Mini's engineering department that say performance will be more of a focus than efficiency on the brands first EV. This should mean that the launch model will be an electric version of the Mini Cooper S E Hardtop. https://www.motorauthority.com/news/...erformance-car

2019 will be a big year not only for this EV but Mini as a whole, its their 60th anniversary, providing even more of a reason to do something EV-related.

Sounds to me like PR spin to try and downplay the poor real world range the Mini EV may have. Their new PHEV variants of the Countryman have been quite poor.

Being part of BMW helps.
Mini shouldn't have to worry about this for much longer as BMW's EV program progresses which over the next 3-5 years it will and drastically.
