He's giving nothing away about the how is he??

No motor shots or battery details

Great production values on the video and some nice interior details however

An electrified version of the original Mini has been revealed at the New York motor show to emphasise the brand’s electric ambitions.

Based on a late version of the first Mini that has been completely restored, the car’s original four-cylinder engine has been swapped for a pure electric powerplant. Mini said the finished car mixes “the brand’s unmistakable character whilst embracing zero local emission technology”.
