BMW started leasing the Mini-E last year to drivers in the U.S., who found that driving distance for the two-seater ranged from 75 miles in very cold weather to about 100 miles. The company first leased the car for $850 a month and recommended drivers get a 240-volt home charger to cut charge time. A production version is expected next year.
