Mini unveils the next-generation Mini Cooper Electric
Mini has said it is “reinventing an icon” as it unveils its next-generation Mini Cooper Electric.
The fifth-generation Mini Cooper was unveiled at the IAA International Motor Show in Munich.
It offers either E and SE output levels, offering 190-miles and 250-miles of electric range and will come in three colours – Blazing Blue, Sunny Side Yellow and Legend Grey.
The overall look is reassuringly Mini, with short overhangs, a short bonnet, and circular headlights – plans to replace them with the angular headlights of the 2022 Aceman concept seem to have been parked for now.
Pleasingly, the iconic circular instrument panel has been retained – but now it’s a 24cm (10-inch) touch screen with media centre and sat nav.
Go kart handling will still be a feature of the car – as one of seven Experience Modes that can be set to match the driver’s mood, and is accompanied by suitable ambient lighting (red for Go Kart, green for Green…)
The Mini Cooper Electric is priced from £30,000 OTR, and from £34,000 for the SE, with customer deliveries commencing in spring 2024.
