What Can You Expect from the MINI Cooper Electric?
The MINI Cooper Electric boasts the same iconic styling you love about the MINI Hardtop 2 Door lineup. With a typical 3-part structure, short overhangs, and widely set wheels, this peppy car is sure to turn heads. A characteristic front radiator grille and distinctively designed rear apron catch the eye and help to reduce aerodynamic drag, for a sleek and refined performance on the open road. Its T-shaped battery is expertly situated deep in the vehicle floor between the front seats and below the rear seats. This placement doesn’t compromise rear cargo space though, so you can expect 34 cubic feet of rear cargo room as there is in the gas-engine model.
With such an impressive all-electric range, you may find yourself exploring new areas more in the MINI Cooper Electric. A 6.5-inch navigation system with Real Time Traffic Information comes standard to help you get where you need to go quickly and with minimal traffic. Download the available MINI Connect App to stay connected to your vehicle. It displays your battery charge, so you know when it’s time to recharge. Find the nearest public charge station through its helpful map feature and you’ll always have a well-powered ride.
