BMW Delivers Electric Minis to Mexico City
German automaker BMW has delivered 12 Mini Cooper electric cars, or Mini Es, to government officials, researchers and academics in Mexico City as part of a field trial of their mobility and power consumption, as well as road conditions in this heavily polluted capital.
Tuesday's delivery of the vehicles, to be launched on the Mexican market in 2014, is aimed at complementing studies on these new prototypes' response to real traffic conditions, BMW Mexico CEO Gerd Dressler said.
During the ceremony attended by Mexico City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard, the executive said the idea is for the cars' temporary owners to report back on battery performance, charge times, changes in their driving habits and use of the vehicle in Mexico City.
