The new MINI Cooper SE will be the first fully electric compact premium car, providing a sustainable driving experience and, at the same time, very exciting in city traffic. You simply cannot offer more efficiency.
The new MINI Electric is the first electric model from the BMW Group in which each driver can determine the level of recovery and the associated deceleration effect. Depending on the selected mode, the electric motor supplies more or less power to the high-voltage battery as soon as the driver takes his foot off the pedal. The braking effort, associated with the selection of the electric motor to activate the operation of the generator, is consequently high or low. The level of braking energy recovery, and consequently also deceleration, can be adjusted to the riding style and profile of the circuit. Timing switching ensures smooth recovery before taking wide bends and full energy recovery with corresponding deceleration before taking sharp bends without the driver's foot having to press the brake pedal.
The new MINI Cooper SE is the first premium compact car to offer an all-electric powertrain and a sustainable urban driving experience that also sparks enthusiasm. It is based on the conventionally powered MINI 3-door Hatch, but this model, as well as incorporating the striking design, offers some specific details. The 135 kW (184 hp) electric motor, which powers the front wheels in typical MINI style, provides the vehicle with impressive acceleration. The instant response of the engine to the slightest acceleration adds a new dimension to the fabulous go-kart feel associated with the brand. The new MINI Cooper SE accelerates from 0 to 60 km / h in just 3.9 seconds, and from 0 to 100 km / h in just 7.3 seconds. The presentation made by the British brand of the new MINI Cooper SE is of an average fuel consumption: 0.0 l / 100 km; average electricity consumption: 14.8 - 16.8 kWh / 100 km and an average level of CO2 emissions: 0 g / km marking the beginning of a new era in purely electric mobility, in which drivers will be able to enjoy a Near-silent, zero-emission urban driving in true MINI style.
The energy required to drive the vehicle with such power comes from a state-of-the-art lithium-ion battery that allows a range of 235 to 270 kilometers. Tailored suspension tuning and an extremely low center of gravity give the new MINI Cooper SE extraordinary handling agility and cornering dynamism.
The brand's first all-electric model will be manufactured in the UK at MINI's Oxford plant and will begin sales in 2020. Its drivetrain technology has been designed at the BMW Group's centers of excellence for electric mobility. in Dingolfing and Landshut. Standard equipment for the new MINI Cooper SE includes LED headlights, digital instrument cluster, electric parking brake, bi-zone climate control, heating system with heat pump technology, auxiliary heating and auxiliary climate control functions, as well as Connected Navigation. . At launch, the new model will also be offered with numerous driver assistance systems and four equipment packages, allowing it to be precisely tailored to individual needs.
