Written by Kanad Kalasur

Mini has revealed the 2024 Cooper E and Cooper SE. These all-electric versions of the popular brand will be the way forward for the company.

What’s new in the Mini Cooper?

The new Mini Cooper E and SE come with a new minimalistic design on the outside. This includes new LED headlights and tail lights. The cars also come with flush-fitting door handles. Meanwhile the company has removed the wheel arch claddings and the chrome elements to give the car a simple look.

On the inside, the same minimalistic theme is carried over. New for the interior includes a large circular central infotainment display, updated dashboard design, vertical AC vents, an optional head-up display and more.

The driver gets steering mounted controls while the cabin comes with premium upholstery.

Powertrain of the new Mini Cooper

Mini is offering a 40.7 kWh battery on the Cooper E. This variant is paired with a single motor that is rated at 184 BHP and 292 Nm. This gives the car a 0-100 km/h time of 7.3 seconds with a maximum range of 305 km on a single charge. The range numbers are based on the WLTP cycle.

Meanwhile, the more powerful SE variant comes with a 54.2 kWh battery and a motor rated at 218 BHP and 329 Nm. The Cooper SE will sprint from 0-100 km/h in 6.7 seconds with a range of 402 km (WLTP cycle).

Mini is also offering fast charge capabilities on the all-electric Cooper. Both the E and SE variants come with 75 kW and 95 kW fast charging capabilities respectively. This means, the 10-80 percent top up will take 30 minutes.

Mini Charged Edition

Mini has launched the new Mini Charged Edition. This is a limited edition version based on the Cooper SE trim. The company is importing only 20 units of the car and has priced the car at INR 55,00,000, ex-showroom.
