Munich. The fully electric MINI Cooper combines a modern, environmentally friendly drive with brand-typical driving pleasure. Like the entire new MINI model family, the MINI Cooper E is also available in three redesigned vehicle trims. The Classic Trim offers expressive body colors and contrasting roof finishes. The puristic design of the iconic MINI three-door model is particularly expressive in Sunny Side Yellow, with a contrasting roof and mirror caps in white.

In this trim level, the surfaces of the cockpit are covered with two-tone black and blue knit material. This creates a stylish contrast to the high-quality synthetic leather seats made of Vescin. They are available in grey or black with a perforated houndstooth pattern.

“With the new all-electric MINI Cooper E, we are offering a great entry-level option into the new MINI family. Its 184 hp guarantees exciting agility and exciting acceleration without any sacrifices.” says Stefanie Wurst, head of MINI.

Emotional driving pleasure and fast charging.
The direct handling of the sporty steering wheel brings maximum emotions to the cockpit. An increased track width and a longer wheelbase optimise dynamics in demanding driving situations. The brand-typical go-kart feeling is maximized by the direct power delivery of the electric motor.

With a capacity of 40.7 kWh, the MINI Cooper E battery (combined power consumption: 14.3-13.8 kWh/62 miles in accordance with WLTP; combined CO2 emissions: 0 g/m) achieves a range of 189 miles in the WLTP test cycle.

On the road, 28 minutes of charging with a DC output of up to 75 kW is enough to charge the MINI Cooper E battery from 10 to 80 per cent.

The 135 kW/184 hp electric drive can access the maximum torque of 290 Nm at any time. As a result, the vehicle accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in just 7.3 seconds.

Distinctive exterior with an urban orientation.
Typical MINI proportions shape the vehicle's silhouette. The compact dimensions make handling easier as well as the search for a parking space.

At the front, the MINI round headlights and the octagonal front grille form the characteristic MINI face. With optionally available unique light signatures, the LED headlights accentuate the distinctive appearance of the MINI Cooper E. Various, aerodynamically optimised designs are available for rim sizes ranging from 16 to 18 inches.

More comfort and safety in city traffic.
Active Cruise Control automatically controls the distance to the vehicle in front and continuously monitors the road. Therefore, potentially dangerous situations in heavy traffic can be identified at an early stage. The Parking Assistant automatically recognises parking spaces and takes over the automatic parking process at the push of a button.

CO2 emission information.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown were determined in a standardised test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version currently applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers transmission (automatic or manual) and the different wheels and tyres available on the selected model and may vary during the configuration.

The values of the vehicles labelled with (*), are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. More information on the transition from NEDC to WLTP test procedures can be found here.

These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. For plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles the figures have been obtained using a combination of battery power and petrol fuel after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. The CO2 emissions labels are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car (Fuel consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations 2001, as amended. They are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle.

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge. For further information you can also visit this link.
