Munich. The next generation of the MINI family is now being launched with the MINI Cooper Electric. The new edition of the iconic MINI 3-door is geared towards electric driving fun and is available at two power levels. With its thrillingly agile drive, the MINI Cooper Electric stands for locally emission-free premium mobility of the future.

Originally launched in 2020, the all-electric MINI Cooper SE saw a 25.5 per cent increase in sales in 2022 to become by far the most popular MINI model, with over 43,000 units of the locally emission-free MINI being sold worldwide last year. One out of five MINI on the road now is electrically powered. The enormous ongoing success of the original MINI was recently demonstrated by the production anniversary of the one millionth MINI 3-door of the current – fourth – generation. Likewise fully electric, the vehicle was delivered to Canada.

Electrified go-kart feeling with maximum torque right from the get-go.
In the new MINI family, full torque is available from the get-go in both the MINI Cooper E with an output of 135 kW and the MINI Cooper SE with 160 kW. It accelerates without delay and without shift interruptions. The lithium-ion high-voltage battery is installed in the floor of the MINI Cooper Electric for optimum road holding and weight distribution, while also increasing the vehicle’s stability and agility. In this way, MINI redefines the brand’s hallmark go-kart feeling, consistently perpetuating the concept of urban driving fun that has been so successful for more than 60 years.

MINI was able to draw on development expertise within the BMW Group in order to achieve further improved driving dynamics in the new MINI Cooper Electric. The vehicle has been firmly anchored in the company’s brand history from the market launch of the redesigned generation of the MINI 3-door in 2001 through to the upcoming fifth model generation. Continuous advancement in the areas of technology, efficiency and power delivery reflects careful handling of the popular MINI model’s tradition-steeped history and now once again raises driving fun to a new level.

Improved range and maximum flexibility
The battery capacity in the MINI Cooper E is 40.7 kWh, while in the MINI Cooper SE it is 54.2 kWh. This gives the new models a predicted range of between 300 and 400 kilometres, thereby noticeably extending the radius for excursions within the urban setting and beyond.

With its hallmark MINI space concept, the MINI Cooper Electric demonstrates the maximum flexibility of a purpose-built vehicle. Offering maximum variability, the design of the interior allows the luggage compartment volume to be expanded and includes four seats.

Together with the MINI Countryman to be produced at the BMW Group Plant Leipzig from November 2023, the new MINI Cooper Electric is all set and ready to go for the all-electric future of MINI. The MINI Aceman will complete the new model family from 2024 onwards.

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the automotive market in Germany. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures are already calculated on the basis of the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC values listed have been calculated back to the NEDC measurement procedure where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the definition of taxes and other vehicle-related levies that are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle- specific subsidies. Further information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures is also available at bmw.de/wltp.

For further details of the official fuel consumption figures and official specific CO2 emissions of new cars, please refer to the following web site www.dat.de.
