If you’ve been following the BMW MINI E program unveiled officially on November 19th, 2008 at the Los Angeles Auto Show you’ll know the process for being selected as a potential MINI E driver is a multistep process. The window to apply for a lease of a MINI E was from November 19th to December 24th, 2008, via an hour long online questionnaire.

Achieving selection status was just one of the first steps to MINI E driving sweetness. In the past couple of months I’ve been passing other qualifications. One of these items on the MINI E deployment checklist regards the residence where one is to park and charge the MINI E. MINI wants to insure their MINI Es will be parked in an enclosed garage and that the residence’s electrical system is up to the task of charging the car.
