MINI Cooper SE

The MINI Cooper SE could be the first all-electric model from BMW Group to be sold in India. The Cooper SE is based on the Cooper 3-door hatchback, and while both the cars look almost identical, the SE swaps the internal combustion engine for an electric motor and a battery.

  • Mini Cooper Electric has launched its first all-electric car in India, priced at Rs 47.20 lakh.
  • Powered by a 184hp electric motor, this vehicle has a WLTP-claimed range of 235-270km.

The electric Mini Cooper SE could be the first all-electric model from BMW Group to be sold in India, with the Cooper SE set to arrive in India at a price of Rs 47 lakhs, launched in February 2022.

The Exterior Design of the Mini Cooper SE


The Cooper SE appears to be nearly identical to the standard Cooper hatchback that people have grown to love. All of Cooper’s traditional design elements, such as the round LED headlamps, Union Jack-themed LED taillamps, and, of course, that familiar silhouette, has been retained. 

There are some key differences, such as the blacked-out front grille with a new ‘E’ badge, a slightly reprofiled front bumper, a redesigned rear bumper that no longer needs to house exhaust pipes, and yellow accents on the door mirror caps and wheels. https://e-vehicleinfo.com/mini-electric-launched-mini-cooper-se-in-india-price-and-launch/


  • Yellow Mirror Caps,
  • 17-inch electric power spoke alloy,
  • Contrasting roof in black, and
  • Exterior accents in Piano Black.

Speaking of which, the Cooper SE’s distinctive wheel design is meant to resemble a British plug socket. It also sits 15mm higher than the combustion-engined model to allow for battery pack clearance.

In India, the Cooper SE will be available in four color options: White Silver, Midnight Black, Moonwalk Grey, and British Racing Green. 

Interior and Features of the Mini Cooper SE EV


On the inside, the Cooper SE’s cabin is instantly recognizable. The overall dashboard design is very similar to that of the standard Cooper hatchback – a key highlight is a new digital instrument cluster, which the Cooper SE is the first Mini to have.

The only other difference is a new toggle switch for the multi-level brake regeneration system on the center console, with the yellow accent carried over to the interior as well. Mini claims that the new powertrain has had little impact on the interior or boot space.

Powertrain and Charging 

The Cooper SE is powered by an electric motor that generates 184hp and 270 Nm of torque, drawing power from a 32.6kWh battery mounted in a T-shape beneath the passenger seat.

Power is directed solely to the front wheels, resulting in a 0-100kph sprint time of 7.3 seconds and a top speed of 150kph. The Cooper SE also has four drive modes: Mid, Sport, Green, and Green+, and the powertrain is shared with the BMW i3 hatchback.

Competitors in India


As things stand, the electric Cooper SE will have no direct competitors in India, as models such as the Mercedes EQC, Jaguar I-Pace, and Audi e-Tron are significantly larger and more expensive.
