MINI has published a teaser image of an electric safety car on its Twitter.
The fact that MINI is developing a high-performance electric vehicle is not news at all. Back in December, it released some photos of such a prototype.
The latest teaser clearly points to electric mobility: absence of tailpipes and rear fog light in the middle of the diffuser instead, a promising hashtag “#ElectricThrillMaximised”.
The most noticeable and interesting detail is bright lights. They identify the vehicle as a safety or pace car.* This may mean the MINI to be the safety car for Formula E, given that BMW has provided safety cars (i series models) for a few years.
It’s only our assumption, since we do not know yet when MINI will unveil the model, and what it’ll actually be. The Formula E season has already begun, by the way.
