The original Mini is still so charming and fun; it's great to see a fully functional restomod like this in the Big Apple. And the conversion to electrons isn't bothersome one bit, as the car's feather weight and fun driving characteristics lend themselves so well to the transformation. Mini gave practically zero details on the car, like it's range or the size of its battery pack. All we know is that a "go-kart feeling" was mentioned in the press release, which means it's a true Mini, through and through.
