2020 Mini Cooper SE: Electric hatch teased with plane tow

Mini has amped up the tease for its first mass-produced electric model, towing a Boeing 777F cargo plane to show how much torque is on offer. The new Cooper SE was hooked up to a Lufthansa cargo plane weighing around 136 tonnes at Frankfurt airport, and filmed for a clip posted on social media.
