Hybrid Technologies is greening standard vehicles by ripping out their powertrains and replacing them with electric components. Their pimped out lithium-ion powered Mini Cooper, which was taken for a test drive around NYC by Popular Mechanics, is one example. You can buy your own conversion kit for around $25,000, or wait for the day when Mini actually makes an electric option.
