The new MINI Cooper SE is powered by an electric motor

The new MINI Coop­er SE will be avail­able in South Africa for sale in a lim­it­ed quan­ti­ties from the first quar­ter of 2021.

As an alter­na­tive in con­trast to petrol or diesel motor, the fresh debut has a back­up elec­tric engine under the bon­net.

The elec­tric engine isn’t lit­tler yet lighter than a com­bus­tion engine, adding to the ami­ca­ble axle load of the new MINI Coop­er SE.

The high-volt­age bat­tery with mod­el-spec­i­fi­ca­tion con­fig­u­ra­tion involves lithi­um-ion cells sub­di­vid­ed into 12 mod­ules.

The T‑shaped unit on the vehi­cle floor, giv­ing a gross ener­gy con­tent of 32.6 kWh.

Along­side the low­er focal point of grav­i­ty, this gives the mod­el spray han­dling, mak­ing it supreme and sim­ple to con­trol despite when tak­ing a cor­ner at high speed.

The new MINI Coop­er SE offers secure road hold­ing, not least for its high-volt­age bat­tery.

Design­ers place it on the vehi­cle floor between the front seats and under­neath the back seats.

Con­sid­er­ing this plan, no restric­tions to use the gear com­part­ment space when con­trast­ed with the pow­ered mod­el forms.

As in the MINI 3 Door with a com­bus­tion engine, the lug­gage vol­ume under the tail­gate is 211 liters, expand­ing to 731 litres when the dri­ver folds the rear back­rests.

Man­u­fac­tures posi­tion the main quan­tifi­able to make 18 mil­lime­ters high­er than in the pow­ered mod­el.

They secure com­po­nents of the elec­tric dri­ve through mod­el-explic­it basic high­lights and turned off if in a col­li­sion.

The safe­ty idea for the new MINI Coop­er SE is under the high stan­dard of the BMW Group, which go well beyond legal pre­req­ui­sites.

The rein­force­ment bumper pro­tects pow­er elec­tron­ics and the engine bol­ster frame, while the strong base plate takes care of the high-volt­age bat­tery.

With an unladen DIN weight of 1 365 kilo­grams, the elec­tri­cal­ly con­trolled mod­el is just some­where between 145 kilo­grams heav­ier than the MINI Coop­er S 3 Door with Step­tron­ic trans­mis­sion.
