MINI goes full electric with Cooper SE




Urban mobility with purely electric drive can now also be experienced in a MINI with the new Cooper SE.

As the first solely electrically powered model of the British brand, the Cooper SE features a 135 kW/270Nm electric motor driving the front wheels. An innovative driving dynamics system with wheel slip limiting close to the actuator give the new MINI Cooper SE the agile go-kart feeling.

The model-specific lithium-ion battery enables a range of 235 to 270 kilometres. The high-voltage battery is situated deep in the vehicle floor, ensuring there are no limitations in terms of luggage compartment volume as compared to the conventionally powered MINI 3 Door.
