Mini Cooper Electric to reach up to 400 km range


Mini has announced the first official key data for the upcoming Cooper Electric. The fifth generation of the 3-door Mini will be available for purchase by the end of the year and is to be produced in Leipzig from November.

The fifth generation of the 3-door Mini will come as Mini Cooper E with 135 kW power and Mini Cooper SE with 160 kW power. In terms of battery capacity, the Mini Cooper E will run on a 40.7 kWh battery, and the Mini Cooper SE reaches 54.2 kWh energy storage capacity. The new models are thus expected to achieve ranges of between 300 and 400 kilometres. The technical key data of the Cooper Electric thus correspond to the values leaked in advance.

According to the manufacturer, the new Mini Cooper Electric is “in the starting blocks” – together with the Mini Countryman, which will be produced at the BMW plant in Leipzig from November 2023, and for which the first official data was revealed a month ago. From 2024, the production model of the Aceman, which was presented last year as an electric concept, will complete the new Mini family.

While the manufacturer also indicated that the electric Mini had made it to Canadian markets, it is unclear whether it will be available in the United States as well, particularly as US American drivers tend to prefer larger vehicles. On that note, “Mini redefines the brand’s hallmark go-kart feeling, consistently perpetuating the concept of urban driving fun that has been so successful for more than 60 years”. However, even if it is just serving the Canadian market, the BMW factory in Mexico is likely to play a role in production for North America. Mini even writes that it was “able to draw on development expertise within the BMW Group in order to achieve further improved driving dynamics in the new MINI Cooper Electric”.
