The new electric mini has 100 cars on the road. It takes 850 a month to lease one and if you use a 220 volt charger it charges in just about 6 hours… A normal 110 outlet takes 24 hours to charge fully. The driving radius/distance is 100 miles. I personally drive a mini so my interest in this electric car is heightened by the idea of using solar/wind to re-charge the car eventually. Using electric would give me an option to getting to a more carbon neutral position with my transportation. As a Realtor it’s very challenging to try to use public transportation.  See article here.
