Overall, we dig the Rocketman's new look, but our biggest question is: why now and why the Rocketman? MINI could have easily applied this paint job to any of their existing models and would have achieved the same amount of publicity. Our best guess is that the Rocketman could potentially have been revived for a few reasons. One is that brands such as Audi
are investing heavily in the development of city cars and that the Audi A2 may not even be an EV at all. BMW will still launch the i3, but further city car EV development has been halted.
