BMW proclaims Mini E users 'delighted'

BMW says early adopters of the Mini E in the US are delighted with their new electric car.

Details of a University of California study into the reactions of those taking part in the BMW leasing trial were released to coincide with the Washington Auto Show.

Only 57 of the 450 Mini E drivers took part in the report but the findings revealed that the car's limited range was sufficient for most trips, and that most households were using the Mini more than other vehicles available to them.
