The new, and first, electric Mini, named the MINI E, has just been released. With zero carbon emissions and powered by a 100 % electric motor, it accelerates to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 8.5 seconds and has a top speed of 152 km/h (95 mph).

Up to 500 MINI E will hit the streets in the US shortly and you could be one of the first people to get a chance to drive it if you're lucky enough to reside in Southern California, New York City and/ or New Jersey.

Excuse me, "xero carbon emissions"? The electricity for the car has to come from somewhere, and in this country, about 50% of our electricity comes from coal-burning plants. So, the Mini E definitely has non-zero carbon emissions. Maybe there are no emissions where the car is driven, but it's generating emissions somewhere in the country.

C'mon people, it's only a dollar.
