It Takes Two Hands

I mentioned earlier in a post that these cars have near full power at 1 RPM. Over 200hp and 162ft lbs of torque that are just 'on'. Powerful front drive cars are notorious for torque steer and the Mini E has it in abundance.

A careful throttle will give you very manageable steering, but step on it and you better be prepared to hang on. It does not take away from the driving or EVing experience, but it may require you to adjust your driving style if you are a casual driver, like start keeping both hands on the wheel in a 10-2 driving style.
