Munich. With a slightly larger track width and longer wheelbase, the new MINI Cooper SE impresses with noticeable dynamism in every season - driving fun that is guaranteed on snow and ice. The spontaneous power development of the 160 kW/218 hp electric motor is transferred directly and precisely to the high-quality chassis technology. The usual direct steering behavior ensures agility, and the integrated braking system ensures maximum safety even on wet and slippery roads.
“The MINI Cooper SE electrifies the go-kart feeling typical of the brand and underlines MINI’s exceptional position in the competitive environment. “Thanks to the fully electric drive concept, the new MINI combines maximum emotion and a minimal footprint and presents itself as a strong symbol for the future of the brand,” says Stefanie Wurst, Head of MINI.
On frozen climbs or downhill sections, Active Slip Regulation optimizes traction and brings up to 330 Nm of maximum torque to the road in a controlled manner. The high-voltage battery with 54.2 kWh capacity and a range of up to 402 kilometers in the WLTP test cycle is installed in the vehicle floor and contributes to a balanced weight distribution. This means that the MINI Cooper SE has a low center of gravity and, in combination with its suspension and damping properties, maneuvers particularly smoothly on the road.

MINI has been continually reinventing and developing the successful concept of the iconic 3-door car for more than 60 years. The classic Mini -thanks to its extremely short body overhangs - impressed with its maneuverable compactness. The classic Mini became a legend in the 1960s when it achieved overall victory three times in the Monte Carlo Rally against significantly more powerful competitors. And just as the classic Mini models moved safely and quickly on snow-covered roads 60 years ago, the current MINI Cooper SE drives safe on snow and ice today.
