There Is Something To MINI-E Range Anxiety

Matt Saunders at Autocar decided to drive 578-mile trip across England in a MINI-E. Here is how autobloggreen synopsizes the trip:
The trip can be condensed into something like this: drive about 70 miles, stop to fire up the laptop, search the web for the nearest charging station, hop back into the Mini E and drive to that station, plug in and wait five hours, hit the road and repeat. It's a daring trip that pushes the Mini E beyond its intended use, but Autocar has proven that it can be done. The Mini E made the 578-mile trip across England in 74 hours with an average speed of just under eight miles per hour. Painfully slow, but successful.
