2020 Mini Cooper SE revealed

Mini has revealed the Cooper SE, its first ever series-production electric vehicle. Power in the electric Mini comes from a 135kW/270Nm electric motor on the front axle, allowing the three-door hatch to accelerate from 0-60km/h in 3.9 seconds and 0-100 in 7.3 seconds. Top speed, meanwhile, is limited to 150km/h. The motor is fed by a 32.6kWh lithium-ion battery pack which the company says is ‘model specific’, allowing for a claimed driving range of 235 to 270 kilometres.

2020 Mini Cooper S E teased

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.
