Embrace the unexpected. Experience a new enjoyment. The first all-electric MINI heralds a supercharged evolutionary step that fuses MINI go-kart feeling and iconic design. Switch on to a new urban electric lifestyle.
We’ve taken MINI’s hallmark handling and assertive sporting style and added a new power source for added driving fun. The moment you take your first corner, you’ll feel that the all-electric MINI is MINI at its most intense – empowering you on a whole new level.
At traffic lights, it’s not just the horsepower (hp) that counts, but the torque (Nm) at your disposal. The all-electric MINI gives you that full torque, immediately. Whereas a petrol engine has to build up a number of revs to generate torque, and route that power through the transmission before it reaches the wheels.
So the moment they go green and you press the accelerator pedal, the torque kicks in instantly to deliver thrilling agility and stirring acceleration.
ONE GEAR. NO SHIFTING.
Even with the direct high torque and high revs of the electric engine, your all-electric MINI doesn't need a clutch, and you can accelerate immediately – at any time and at any speed. It’s all about keeping things simple, and delivering – 0-100 km/h in 7.3 seconds – with no lag and no gearshift interruptions.
A TRUE MINI.
The all-electric MINI is the original icon, now re-energised for the roads of tomorrow. It’s powered by a high-voltage, 96-cell, 32.6 kWh (gross capacity) battery pack that’s mounted under the floor, between the front seats and under the back seats. Positioning the battery here gives the all-electric MINI an extra low centre of gravity, which not only improves stability and handling – but makes cornering even more fun.
You feel the sensation of being close to the road. Its wide track and tightly-tuned suspension system hold you firmly and tightly on the ground as you attack every bend.
Blending aerodynamic lines with new eye-catching signature details, the all-electric MINI is designed to complement vibrant city life – and maximise your driving experience. Confident yet charming – it embraces tradition, and points towards a bright, exciting future.
AERODYNAMIC FRONT GRILLE.
The sleek, captivating front grille has been given a very modern interpretation, embodying both MINI history and the future. It's almost fully closed – which improves the aerodynamics considerably. It’s furnished with a striking yellow accent bar and ‘MINI Electric’ badge to give it a fresh character. This is all stunningly underpinned by the iconic, minimalistic front light rings.
17” MINI ELECTRIC POWER SPOKE 2-TONE.
Radiating intrepid temperament and an aura of urban confidence, these elegant light alloy wheels represent MINI at its most intense. Exhibiting a style uniquely their own, the distinctive, asymmetric trim is almost entirely closed in design – further enhancing the all-electric MINI's aerodynamic properties.
MINI ENERGETIC YELLOW.
The striking Energetic Yellow accents give your all-electric MINI a highly distinctive presence on the road. They stand out, but subtly, and are proud standard bearers for your preferred form of power.
LED HEAD AND REAR LIGHTS.
Like the MINI, the Union Jack transcends time and signifies a long and rich history. The all-electric MINI LED rear lights form a two-part motif that alludes to the iconic emblem. The intricate precision and depth of the design provide an extra dose of individuality. At the front, adaptive MINI LED headlights with Matrix technology automatically adjust brightness and beam pattern for specific conditions, such as oncoming drivers, adding a safety to your drive.
Dynamic yet gentle, the all-electric MINI offers you an entirely new driving experience. The near silence you enjoy takes the stress out of city driving. So you can focus on the essentials like how good your music sounds on the Harman Kardon-designed hi-fi system.
ONE-PEDAL-DRIVING AROUND TOWN.
You can drive your all-electric MINI almost entirely with just one pedal for both accelerating and braking. The motor is directly coupled to the wheels, so when you lift your foot off the pedal, it works like a generator and lets the all-electric MINI slows down more quickly than a petrol-powered car would. You put some power back into your battery every time you come to a stop at the next set of traffic lights.
NO ENGINE NOISE.
The all-electric MINI is so quiet that we had to install a noise-emitting acoustic protection for pedestrians to warn other road users of its presence. There’s no need to rev your motor and apart from a faint hum when you accelerate, the only noise comes from outside. And only then at speed.
LESS NOISE. QUALITY OF LIFE.
The negative effects of too much noise go well beyond hearing. It can lead to stress and weaken our ability to focus and concentrate. Your all-electric MINI is the epitome of calmness and tranquility, offering you a sanctuary for relaxation and reflection.
Connecting you and your all-electric MINI seamlessly.
The premium cockpit technology makes driving as convenient as it is electrifying. Especially built for the all-electric MINI is the new digital instrument cluster. It consists of a 5.5" colour screen, resplendent in a sumptuous Black Panel design, that nestles neatly behind the steering wheel.
This is perfectly complemented by the high-resolution MINI Connected touchscreen in the centre of the dash, from which you interact with your MINI. It’s packed with innovative MINI Connected apps and services specifically orientated to electro-mobility to keep you firmly in control.
MINI eDrive Services were specifically developed for the new all-electric MINI and make electro-mobility particularly easy and convenient. For instance, it provides useful details such as available range, charging status and the closest charging station.
It also tells you how to increase your current range by taking into consideration your individual driving habits to establish the most efficient route. So whether you want to drive it like a sports car, or cruise with extended range, you're completely in control.
ALWAYS BY YOUR SIDE.
No matter where you are, you’ll always enjoy a seamless connection to your all-electric MINI via the MINI Connected app. Features like interior pre-conditioning and the door lock/unlock function can be remotely activated. You can check battery charge status and range from your smartphone. And you can even control the charging process when your MINI is connected to the power grid.
The app also provides traffic reports, weather forecasts, nearest charging stations and general points of interest. You can plan your trip including traffic reports, and send your destination to your all-electric MINI’s navigation system.
