The new MINI Electric

The new MINI Electric is the first solely electrically powered model of the British brand – it combines sustainable mobility with the riding fun, expressive design, and premium quality that are typical of MINI.

Spontaneous power delivery of its electric motor, the brand-specific front-wheel drive, and the innovative driving dynamics system with wheel slip limiting close to the actuator – these elements combine to give the new MINI Electric the typical MINI go-kart feeling with a particularly intense and unmistakable agility. The high-voltage battery is situated deep in the vehicle floor, ensuring zero limitations in terms of luggage compartment volume as compared to the conventionally powered MINI 3 Door.

With the new MINI Electric, the British brand once again sets a pioneering impetus for urban mobility. 60 years ago, the revolutionary design principle of the classic Mini established the basis for maximum interior space with a minimum surface area. The MINI was then launched in 2001 – a modern re-interpretation of creative space usage and unique riding fun that became the original in the premium segment of small cars. The new MINI Electric is hence the first purely electric premium small car, paving the way to a sustainable yet highly emotional driving experience in urban traffic.
