Most Miles On A MINI-E

At the 2010 Detroit Auto Show, Mini USA announced an extension of the lease program, allowing current Mini E drivers to retain their cars for a bit longer. Tom Moloughney took advantage of the extension logging 54,000 miles in 22 months (20,000 of those in the first eight months.) Moloughney's MINI-E has at least 20,000 more miles on its odometer than any of the other 612 electric prototypes produced.

It has been charged more than 1,000 times and its battery pack is showing no signs of degradation. In its first year of use, Moloughney's Mini E averaged 88.4 miles per charge. Surprisingly, that's only 1.2 miles more than its second-year average of 87.2 miles per charge.
