james bluntBack in May, singer James Blunt was one of the first to receive a brand new electric Mini Cooper. The EV was created under a partnership with Hybrid Technologies and NASA. Now, it’s been announced that HT is ready to put the conversion process into commercial production — allowing us to drive some of the first all-electric lithium powered cars early next year. From AutoBlogGreen,

“Hybrid Technologies, the company that is converting the Mini Coopers, built in England, to EVs, says the cars will go up to 80 mph (128 Km/H), do 0-60 in a quick six seconds and have a range of 120 miles/190 km per charge. The conversions are now taking place at Hybrid Technologies Mooresville, North Carolina plant.”

Much like anything else with lithium under the hood, these vehicles don’t come cheap. Expect to throw down $60K to impress your friends, save the earth, and silently creep on unsuspecting deer and neighbors. Or just spend $20K and pick up the new 53MPG Mini Cooper D. Either way, you’re beautiful.
