Why Does The Dealer Want Me To Agree To A Price Before A Test Drive?

  Why Does The Dealer Want Me To Agree To A Price Before A Test Drive? This week we are discussing shady test drive procedures, delivery miles that were more than promised and treating yourself—to a reasonable car. © Image: Jason Torchinsky (Jalopnik)First, why would a dealer make a buyer agree to a price prior to a test drive?“I recently tried to buy a Nissan Leaf and the local dealer only had one available and told us we had to sign a paper agreeing to the price before we were permitted to drive it. We declined that offer and they said, we could only look at it.

The 2020 Cooper SE features two regenerative braking modes: One mode allows the car to coast much like a normal non-EV car when you lift off the accelerator, and the other, more aggressive mode almost eliminates the need to touch the brake pedal. Mini says the SE can be fast-charged to 80

Whether or not the Mini Cooper SE price represents a good deal will depend a lot on how the EV keeps up in the range wars. Unfortunately, U.S. range estimates for the Mini are not available at this time. The EV is rated to travel 235-270 kilometers (146-168 miles) on the European cycle, which is typically more generous than the EPA's rating system.

Walking around the 2020 Mini Cooper SE development mule -- yes, the new electric version will be called SE -- it's difficult to spot many differences Mini did say the SE will hit 62 miles per hour in 7 to 8 seconds.

The Mini Cooper SE ( Mini Electric outside the US) is cat-quick on Brooklyn’s tight 1.5-mile Formula E racetrack.

What we do know is the little Mini makes 181 hp and 199 lb-ft of torque from its electric motor. Routing power to the front wheels, the car is estimated by the automaker to hit 60 mph in 6.9 seconds. Hopefully that's a conservative estimate, because that number would make it slower than many mainstream EVs we've tested. Top speed on the Mini is 93 mph.

The all-electric Mini Cooper will come with a reasonable number of standard features, including LED headlights and foglights, a 6.5-inch display with navigation and Apple CarPlay, heated front seats, leatherette upholstery, and active driving assistant with forward collision warning. AC charging is standard with up to 7.4 kW, and DC fast charging is also standard and can deliver an 80-percent charge in 35 minutes. Two higher trims will also be available. Mini says the EV will be available at its dealerships across the U.S.

The Mini Cooper SE makes its North American debut at the 2019 LA Auto Show.

What’s Next For Federal EV Tax Credits? .
They’re set to phase out during 2019 for Tesla, with General Motors on its heels. But there’s a chance Congress will extend the credits or perhaps even eliminate them. Federal tax credits of $7,500 were enacted in 2010 to help spur sales of electric vehicles, which was a priority for the Obama administration. Unfortunately they’re not permanent, and are scheduled to phase out during the calendar year after an automaker sells 200,000 EVs. Tesla has already reached that milestone, which means if you don’t take delivery of a Model S, Model X, or Model 3 by December 31, 2018, you won’t receive the full credit.
