What to expect

The New 2020 Mini Cooper SE Electric Vehicle is set to come with updated features that will wow you. For example, a 15-inch touchscreen infotainment system is standard in all vehicles while it was not available for all models before. Other features include a heated steering wheel for driving comfortably during cold drives and a lane departure warning. The new Electric vehicle also comes with new patterned 16-inch alloy wheels that are perfect for the vehicle. There is also adaptive cruise control, a driver assistance feature that assists the driver to keep a safe distance when driving behind another vehicle and maintain the designated speed limit in an area. The vehicle's interior also has a new design compared to the older versions. Get ready to experience these and more features.

Performance

The Mini Cooper SE is a fully electric vehicle; therefore, it is run by a powerful electric traction motor. The electric motor is powered by a 32.6 kWh battery pack with only 28.9kWh available for use. The electric motor is efficient in producing 181 horsepower and 199-pound feet of torque. These make the vehicle very efficient for use by city drivers. The electric vehicle comes with a tremendous front-wheel-drive drivetrain that enables it to drive comfortably in the city and its environs. The Mini-Cooper SE Electric Vehicle has a fantastic acceleration sprinting from 0 to 60 kilometres per hour in an astounding 3.9 seconds. As the new Mini Cooper is a fully electric vehicle you might also qualify for some federal reimbursements depending on the province you are in check out here if you qualify.

A fully charged battery has a range of up to 183km, which is very impressive. This range means that a fully charged battery can last you a long while if you are handling simple day-to-day errands every day. The lithium-ion battery in the vehicle charges at a rate of 50kW. This precedent means that it can charge on DC quick charge to a percentage of up to 80 percent in less than 35 minutes which is enough juice to take you on several errands. The battery has a warranty of 8 years, which is roughly equivalent to 160,000 km. The vehicle also comes with a regenerative charging system that turns the vehicle's kinetic energy into electricity used in recharging the vehicle's battery, hence boosting efficiency. This system also enables one-pedal driving that makes driving the vehicle even simpler.

The vehicle comes in four driving modes that make the vehicle more efficient. First, we have the Mid, which is the standard starting driving mode during normal conditions. Sport mode gives you a sharper throttle response while making steering more accurate and weighted. Green mode disengages the throttle so that you use less energy. Then we have the green plus mode, which shuts down normal car functions such as air conditioning. Two regenerative braking modes make it even more efficient. All these modes make the vehicle more comfortable and convenient.

Exterior

The Mini Cooper SE Electric vehicle is a compact vehicle with very aesthetically pleasing exterior characteristics. It is designed with a modern aesthetic in mind. It has three doors, two passenger doors and a rear door that accesses the cargo. The vehicle's grille is different from the custom grilles on standard vehicles, with the Mini-Cooper emblem at the top. Its headlights are circular and are at both ends of the front. The vehicle has its side indicators near the wheel. The front bumper and rear bumper have different colours than the body of the vehicle. The door handles also come in a different colour than the body and the side mirrors.

The vehicle's roof has a different colour to the body, which gives the vehicle a nice aesthetic. Its cargo area is an extended form like SUVs. The vehicle's wheels have a unique spoke pattern and are the perfect size for the vehicle's functionality. The Mini-Cooper is a small vehicle but can still hold an astounding 963 litres of cargo.

Interior

The interior of the Mini Cooper EV has a new design with more exciting features to make the rides more comfortable and safer. It has a 5.5in digital gauge cluster. This cluster displays information that is helpful to the driver, such as the battery level of the charge, your current driving range, and your navigation information. The lighting in the interior is ambient and brings a cooling sensation with up to six different colours giving you a wide range to choose from your favourites. The seats have a fantastic comfortable upholstery that is easy to clean and comfortable to sit. It is designed to make sure you are comfortable.

Safety

The vehicle's manufacturers have safety features that ensure the occupants stay safe while using their vehicles. The vehicle's brakes are active and can break suddenly during an emergency efficiently. There is also a stability control feature that controls the brake pressure. An adaptive cruise control controls your distance whenever you are driving behind other vehicles.

Comparing Mini Cooper EV to the original Mini-Cooper and its origin

The Original Mini-Cooper was built in 1959 with two leading brands: the Austin and the Morris. The original Mini-Cooper differentiates significantly from the 2022 Mini Cooper EV in that it did not have side mirrors. The technological advancements differ a lot, such as it did not have air conditioning, heated seats, heated steering wheels, or even the modern infotainment system. The 2022 Mini Cooper has a more powerful engine. The original Mini-Cooper was smaller.
