The pure-electric Mini Cooper S E has been teased ahead of its reveal in July, with the company showing a few fleeting details of its plug-in hatchback.
That's despite leaks revealing the car's entire design. We know the Mini Cooper SE will have plenty of yellow detailing, with inserts on the grille, wheels, mirrors and flanks. It still gets a 'bonnet scoop', though.
You also get a smattering of cartoonish, power plug-styled 'E' badges, the most prominent of which is displayed on the front grille. The same detailing featured on the Mini Electric concept, so it's no surprise to see it here.
The latest BMW i3 has a 42kWh battery pack, but those same reports have suggested the plug-in Mini will get the 33.8kWh battery from the older model, good for a range between 177km and 185km.
As for pricing, we're expecting the S E to slot between the Cooper S and JCW. In Australia, the three-door Cooper S is priced from $40,700 plus on-road costs, while the flagship JCW kicks off at $50,400.
Mini's plug-in push began Down Under with the PHEV Countryman S E All4, priced from $57,200 plus on-road costs.
