The new Mini Cooper electric reflects Mini’s fresh design approach, known as Characteristic Simplicity. This design language focuses on the brand’s essentials, showcasing a clean and modern look. The redesigned tail-lights at the rear can be personalized, while the blacked-out pillars create a floating roof effect. The car’s dimensions have seen adjustments to accommodate the battery, resulting in a slightly shorter overall length. Exterior highlights include circular LED headlamps, 17-inch alloy wheels, LED tail lights, a new grille, revised bumpers, a contrasting black roof, and stylish yellow accents on the ORVMs and alloy wheels.


The interior design of the Mini electric takes inspiration from the original BMC Mini of 1959, embracing a minimalist approach. It features a round instrument cluster positioned above a row of toggle switches. The curved dashboard boasts a unique knitted textile surface and houses a groundbreaking 9.4-inch OLED infotainment touchscreen, making it the first circular screen in a production car. The instrument cluster is replaced by a sleek, reflective panel for the head-up display, more streamlined steering wheel. The cabin also incorporates textured surfaces for added character. The SE electric’s interior includes a 5.5-inch colored MID, an 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and a Nappa leather steering wheel.

The Mini Cooper electric will have two distinct variants. The base Cooper E gets a front-mounted motor generating 184hp and 290Nm, paired with a 40.7kWh battery that grants it an impressive claimed range of 305km, a substantial improvement over the previous Electric model.

It packs a larger 54.2kWh battery, extending its claimed range to 402km. These models come with various Mini Experience modes, each offering unique displays and powertrain characteristics, including a new Go-Kart Mode. Additionally, they feature new digital driving sounds.
