Are Mini Es available on the used market? I have never seen one for sale. My understanding is that they were all leases. Did BMW destroy them after lease termination?

BMW repurposed the MINI E batteries as energy storage units. I was shown an installation at a BMW facility in Silicon Valley.
BMW did a project with UC San Diego: https://www.energy.ca.gov/research/e.../ev_batteries/
