Priced at $4,300, the MINI EV comes as more affordable than the Dartz equivalent that is available in the European market. The MINI EV has already raked 15,000 sales in the first 20 days and a few months later, the car has received a whopping 50,000 orders for this small EV.

Inspired by the success of the MINI EV, the MINIEV Cabrio is hoping to replicate that performance. The concept car gets LED headlamps, coloured door inserts, six-spoke alloy wheels. The drop-top roof is made of fabric and can be kept at the rear seat. The integrated roll hoops protect the front occupant's noggings.
