Mini has already uncovered SE electric vehicle during a photoshoot but they are still continuing with series of teasers. In this post, we are going to show a clip of Mini Cooper SE and depicts as “muscle car”. Mini Cooper SE is company’s first mass-produced electric vehicle. It showcases how it tows Boeing 777F freight aircraft with an unladen weight of approximately 150 tons. As you would have expected, the film was made for promotional purpose and we have attached 45 seconds video for your viewing pleasure.
This video marks the commencement of series of social media videos that will portray SE electric vehicle in an exciting and entertaining manner. Mini’s first EV is going into production at BMW Group’s Oxford plant in UK from November 2019. Cooper SE is based on Mini Hatch which is also known as Hardtop in US. Mini Cooper SE promises to combined emission free driving with company’s typical go-kart experience. If automaker’s words are to be believed Mini’s electric motor will offer “spontaneous power delivery with a high level of torque available directly from standing.” This is all Mini is gong to divulge about the new SE electric vehicle.
Mini Cooper SE is expected to share electric drivetrain with BMW i3S and we expect rear-wheel drive setup. Hence, Cooper SE could come with 44.2 kWh battery that powers the electric motor. This electric motor is rated at 181 hp and 270 Nm of torque. If this report turns out to be true, then we expect it to offer 170 miles of driving range in the WLTP cycle.
