Why Won't Anyone Notice My Electric Car???

I think the mini electric car is fascinating and adorable.  If I saw it on the road, I would certainly notice the plug graphics and want to pull alongside it at a red light and ask about it.  I truly would.  Why won't anyone notice it??  I even passed two other minis today (the gas kind) and they didn't seem to notice.  I get more questions when I walk my labradoodle.  Even when parked in the Whole Foods parking lot, a place where I imagine there are other people who are interested in organic food, alternative power sources and buying green, there were no questions and no looks.  Today I could at least forgive people for not noticing my car, since there was something else quite unusual and beautiful to see in NY:  the sun.  Ah, well.  And here is a picture of the trunk, just so you can see that, unless you are John and Kate plus 8, there is plenty of room for a couple of bags of groceries.


  1. It's funny how we expect and want the car to be noticed. I also shop at a Whole Foods near me here in Maplewood NJ and no one has noticed a thing about my #486. A few people have looked at it for more than a moment, but no comments or questions.

    Maybe our motivations are askew?

  2. Hi I'm Robert from TwistyBlitz. I have just added you blog to my website.
    If interested go here...

    I am doing a 4 part MINI E post form my interviews with 3 west coast lessees at my blog and will be offering tshirts and badges at my online store this week.

    Hope you will stop by, RB

  3. The factory plugin graphic is a little abstract and most people dont realize what it represents, plus its on the roof and hard to see. Might help if you applied a customized magnetic sign on the side with a clear message about the Mini E being 100% electric. If i had one of the cars I'd do all I could to advertise its sll electric capabilities.

  4. Nice!! but you should have taken it's picture in more batter way so that i could comment on it.
