The BMW Group has begun accepting applications to participate in MINI-E Munich trials. Applicants must be residents of Munich or the surrounding area and have access to a private parking space. The monthly lease fee is €400 (US $517) (almost $300 per month less than in the US.) The application period runs until June 20, 2010, with the vehicles to be delivered in September. More information and an application form is available online at www.MINI.de.
