The MINI Cooper SE is the first all-electric premium car of the popular British brand Cooper. The electric car concept was first presented in 2017 in Frankfurt. The presentation of the production version of the electric car took place only two years later in Rotterdam.
The electric car is equipped with a synchronous electric motor with 135 kW of power and 270 N⋅m of torque. The drive design is constructed in such a way as to provide the electric car with a high level of power delivery, when energy utilization is as efficient as possible and ensures a smooth running of the car. The car accelerates from 0 to 100 km in 7.3 seconds. The maximum speed is 150 km/h.
The Cooper SE is equipped with a high-voltage lithium-ion battery with 12 modules. The battery has a capacity of up to 32.6 kWh. According to the WLTP cycle, the battery capacity is enough to cover a distance of 240-270 kilometers.
Recharge the battery at 80% of AC power of 11 kW (through the Type 2 port) can be achieved in about 2.5 hours, and at 100% – 3.5 hours. Faster electric cars can be recharged at CCS Combo 50-kW fast charging stations. At this station, you can recharge the battery at 80% in 35 minutes.
Due to the convenient T-shaped battery, the designers were able to place it under the floor, not limiting the capacity of the interior and the trunk of the car. The volume of the luggage compartment of the electric car has remained the same as in the fuel version – 211 liters. If necessary, it can be increased to 730 liters, for this purpose it is necessary to fold the rear seat backs.
The control system of the electric car offers the driver a choice of four driving modes – “Green”, “Green+”, “Mid” and “Sport”. The first two are responsible for the economical driving mode and are perfect for travel within the city. During the last two modes, the movement of the electric car is sharper and more dynamic. They are best used for longer journeys.
The standard configuration of the Cooper SE includes an acoustic pedestrian protection system, dual-zone climate control, navigation system, climate control, as well as other elements, including wireless charging for gadgets and other devices.
The climate control system allows you to quickly warm up the cabin in cold weather, maximizing battery life through the efficient use of the heat pump.
Many functions can be controlled remotely using a specially developed app, such as doors, charging and climate control.
The design of the electric car Cooper SE is made in the corporate style of MINI – these include square rounded forms, clear roof lines and standard wide-spaced wheels.
The body surface of the electric car is optimized for better aerodynamics. For this purpose, the car is equipped with a closed hexagonal grille with yellow inserts, LED headlights and four-spoke 16-inch wheels with the original pattern. Optionally, the electric car can be equipped with larger disks – 17-inch.
Externally, the electric nature of the electric car is emphasized by the charging port, which is located above the rear right wheel of the car, instead of the cover for the fuel tank.
When decorating the interior of the first electric car of the brand, the designers did not refuse the usual style for Cooper cars. Its distinctive feature was the interior trim, ergonomics and elaboration of details down to the last detail.
The virtual dashboard of the electric car is equipped as standard with a 6.5-inch display, as well as 5.5-inch touch screen, which is located in the center, where in the fuel cars was a speedometer. Optionally, the multimedia system can be equipped with an 8.8-inch screen.
In addition to the familiar Cooper controls, engineers have developed a new gearshift system and a new electronic parking brake for the electric car.
The premium electric car from MINI Cooper will be offered in four different interior trims. Each of them will be distinguished by its characteristic features, such as the range of colors, the finishing materials for the seats, as well as all sorts of adjustment elements, buttons and other details.

Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)
A public charging station is required to use the highest possible charging rate. The EVSE/charging station’s charging capacity affects how long it takes to fully charge the battery. The table below shows all possible options for fully charging the Mini Cooper SE.
In Europe, plugging an electric car into an outlet is often as easy as plugging it into a household outlet, but there are differences from country to country. The table below shows the different ways to charge the Mini Cooper SE, but in some countries some chargers may not be available.

Fast Charging (10 -> 80%)
If you want to enjoy driving an electric car, one of the most important features to consider is the number of miles per hour the car can travel while charged. This is called the “range” of the car. All electric cars have a certain range, even if they are 100% charged. This is because they do not have an internal combustion engine to lean on if you need to drive a long distance.
