Mini Cooper SE is the first all-electric car from Mini.
Powered by a 184bhp electric motor and has a driving range of 270km.
Will make its public debut at Frankfurt Motor Show in November.
The British automaker, Mini has revealed its first all-electric vehicle post its launch. The 2020 Mini Cooper SE follows the classic design and adopts various elements from 2017 Mini Electric Concept.
However, the styling and shape are carried from a conventional car. So now the grille has a silver and green finish along with chrome as well as sports E badge in place of S badge. The electric car has modern alloy wheels that are followed from 2017 Electric Concept and there is no aggressive diffuser or sporty exhaust tip. Other exterior features include a bumper with E logo on the tailgate and Union Jack LED taillamps. Charging ports are available under the fuel filler cap.
Coming to the Mini Cooper SE interior, the cabin is recognisable and thoroughly futuristic. The upcoming Cooper SE features an all-digital instrument cluster, and three driving modes including Mid, Green and Sport. The boot capacity is around 211 litres, however, the ride height is increased to 18mm due to battery pack mounted to the floor. All other interior features will be the same as in the conventional variant.
The electric Mini Cooper SE will be powered by a 181 bhp electric motor that produces a torque of 270 Nm. The top speed of the Mini Cooper SE is 150kmph and it accelerates from 0-100kmph in just 7.3 seconds. Under the WLTP test cycle, the Li-ion battery pack (32.6 kWh) is expected to have a range of 235-270kmph. In 11 kW charging, 80% of charge could be easily achieved within two and a half hour, although full charging takes around three and a half hours. Around 80% of charging could be achieved within 35 minutes through 50kW fast charging. The British carmaker has claimed that this electric Mini Cooper SE is quite heavy than a standard car and its characteristics are retained.
It is expected that the Mini Cooper SE will be seen in public at Frankfurt Motor Show at the end of this year. The electric Mini car will be available on sale in the coming year and more likely to make its Indian debut in the upcoming years.
