Mini has unveiled and all electric Mini Cooper SE. The premium hatches’ electric motor produces 135 kW and 270 Nm. This allows the car to accelerate from zero to 60 km/h in 3.9 seconds and from zero to 100 km/h in 7.3 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited at 150 km/h.
The model-specific lithium-ion battery enables range of 235 to 270 kilometres. Mini claims that this battery pack does not have any constraints in terms of luggage compartment volume. The Mini Cooper SE can be charged at a household socket, wallbox or public charging stations, fast direct-current charging possible at up to 50 kW.
In terms of exterior design, the Cooper SE has bright yellow body accents on the front grille and side mirror caps and alloy wheels which hints at the electric nature of the car. Standard features included signature Mini LED headlights, two-zone automatic AC and a 6.5-inch infotainment with navigation. An 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment is available as an optional extra. At the centre of this fully digital screen, the road speed is shown in figures with a peripheral scale band. The speed band is also displayed in the light ring of the central instrument – in red (SPORT mode), white (MID) or green (GREEN and GREEN+), according to the mode selected. You can also personalize your Mini by choosing from a number of available packages.
The new MINI Cooper SE will be available for sale in South Africa, in limited quantities, from the first quarter of 2021.
