According to Jalopnik MINI will loan New York City 10 MINI-E's to be used for a year in the City's "SCOUT" (Street Condition Observation Unit) program to scour the streets for potholes and graffiti. The object of this free loan is to put the MINI-E's through harsh, real life, situations for a year. The BMW press release cited by Jalopnik advises it is anticipated that the vehicles will each log about 100 miles per day.
