MINI is celebrating 10 years in India with the launch of the first all-electric car in the compact premium segment.
It’s been a decade since the first MINI arrived in the country. And now, with the electric car revolution gaining in prominence, the car maker has brought to Indian shores its first all-electric MINI 3-Door Cooper SE .
Being offered as completely built-up unit (CBU), the company saw that all available units were sold out during the pre-launch booking in Q4 2021. MINI India will be delivering the cars to the pre-launch customers from March 2022, earlier than promised. Bookings for the next phase of deliveries will start from March 2022, on the MINI Online Shop.
The company has stated that the MINI Electric brings with it the iconic character of MINI along with all the benefits of going electric. Promising zero emissions, it comes across as a combination of sustainable driving and thrilling driving performance.
Significantly, the new vehicle is the first series model exclusively available for booking on the MINI Online Shop. The MINI 3-Door Cooper SE brings instant torque, zero emissions and a low centre of gravity that enhances its legendary go-kart feeling.
All-electric MINI 3-Door Cooper SE comes for Rs 47,20,000
Offered for an ex-showroom price of Rs 47,20,000, the all-electric MINI 3-Door Cooper SE comes with a Smart Wallbox charger with a fixed charging cable and one-time installation.
The all-electric MINI 3-Door Cooper SE is the first model to combine electro mobility in an urban setting. The dimensions, design, space and interior ambience are based on the conventionally powered MINI 3-Door Hatch. Modern aesthetic aerodynamic lines with new eye-catching signature details add to the charm of the design element. Dynamic lines and a crisp, clean style combine with the wide track and short overhangs to give the MINI 3-Door Cooper SE its taut athletic presence, said the car maker. The car is available in four unique exterior colours – White Silver, Midnight Black, Moonwalk Grey and British Racing Green.
The interior comes with the exclusive MINI Electric Interior Surface and sports seats with Cloth/ Leatherette Combination Upholstery in Black Pearl/ Carbon Black. The new multifunction steering wheel in Nappa Leather integrates more functions yet reduces the number of control surfaces. The new 5-inch/ 12.7 cm digital Multifunction Instrument Display in a sleek Black Panel design provides key driving information. A 8.8-Inch/22.35 cm high-resolution, full-colour touchscreen is also thrown in .
Safety features galore
With 184 hp/135 kW and a maximum torque of 270 Nm, the electric MINI sprints from 0-100 km in 7.3 seconds. Dynamic yet silent, the all-electric MINI offers an entirely new driving experience. It is powered with a battery capacity of 32.6 kWh and a driving range of up to 270 km. MINI 3-Door Cooper SE ensures fast and hassle-free charging.
