our opinion on the 100% electric Mini

Mini continues to electrify its range. After the launch in 2017 of a rechargeable hybrid version of its Countryman SUV, the brand returns with its first 100% electric model. Marketed in France in March – just before containment – this Mini Cooper SE makes its real launch this month at dealerships. Available only on the three-door body, this electric Mini looks a lot like … a normal Mini! It would have been astonishing to do otherwise knowing that design is the main criteria for buying this car. Electric or not, a Mini must remain a Mini.

Some people will still have noticed some differences. Like the grille, fully closed, as on most electric models, the absence of exhaust outlets, several “E” badges on the bodywork and specific personalization elements (yellow stickers, rims new asymmetrical) reserved for our trial version “Greenwich”, a special series offered from 37,600 euros (excluding ecological bonus). Finally, the fuel hatch now houses the outlet, whose maximum power of 50 kW allows recharging in just 1 hour 25 minutes. Allow a little more than 4 hours on a 7.4 kW charger, of the “Wallbox” type.

Inside, the differences are just as limited, except for the needle counters, which are replaced by a small screen. For the rest, the habitability is still as narrow but the presentation and the perceived quality are of a good level. Despite the batteries under the floor, the boot volume has not decreased compared to the thermal versions but remains very low (211 liters). There is still a very practical double floor system for storing the different charging cables.

And behind the wheel?

If you buy a Mini for its design, you also choose it for its driving pleasure. Good news: this electric version retains DNA Mini. She may not be as agile
