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.
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.
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 7.5 seconds – with no lag and no gearshift interruptions.
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.
