Approval for Road Use

License plate number: LU135719

Finally I managed to get the approval and the official license plate on Wednesday 13th December 2017.  I am very happy that everything went well in the second round. The chief expert tested the Electric Mini even on the motorway and reached a maximum speed of 120 km/h.

This is the link to the corresponding agency / authorities:



So far I did some test runs in Lucerne and its surrounding. I can summarize the first impressions and outcomes as follows:

Consumtion0.14 kWh/km
Range (calculated with consumption and battery capacity)73 km
Acceleration / SpeedNo problem to follow traffic
Problems1.) Voltage drop during heavy acceleration in 3rd gear. Converter starts to limit.
2. ) Battery pack needs to be better balanced

Keep you posted ….. take care …. Erich Butler
