BMW Unveiled its All Electric 2020 MINI Cooper SE – TyreCafe

by Editor News


BMW has unwrapped the MINI Cooper SE, the brand's first-ever electric car. This is also BMW's electric car after the i3 and is in fact based on the same platform. Visually, this car has the same Mini design language and is in-line with the standard Cooper S that draws power from the petrol motor.

Many changes have been done on the MINI Cooper SE to get its electric nature. The car comes with bright yellow body accents on the front grille and ORVMs. The good looking alloy wheels have been inherited from the 2017 MINI Electric concept. The exhaust system is not present on the Cooper SE, while the underside has been covered to reduce aerodynamic drag. The interior is based on the conventional version and the same dashboard with the circular-themed infotainment system.

Mini Cooper SE gives 184 bhp of power and 270 Nm of peak torque from the electric motor. It can sprint from 0-60 kmph in 3.9 seconds and 0-100 kmph will come up in 7.3 seconds. The range of Cooper SE is 235-270 km from its 32.6 kWh battery. According to BMW, the car can keep up with sports cars for the first 200 feet and the top speed is electronically limited to 150 kmph.

To keep the batteries safe, the Mini has an 18 mm higher ground clearance. The optimum weight distribution of the car helps the Cooper SE remain agile around the corners. Comparing it to the standard version, the Cooper SE is only 145 kg heavier over the Cooper S automatic due to the weight of the battery.

The 2020 MINI Cooper SE comes with LED headlights, two-zone automatic climate control and 6.5-inch infotainment. It also gets an 8.8-inch touchscreen unit and leather upholstery. The electric MINI uses Type 2 and CCS Combo 2 plugs for AC and DC charging. BMW says that the hatchback will charge up to 80 per cent in 35 minutes at a maximum capacity of 50 kW, while the standard charging option will take two and a half hours to reach up to 80 per cent with a capacity of 11 kW.
