The 2020 MINI Cooper SE is set to storm the US in March. Our beloved British brand’s new battery electric model is poised to be a leader in its class, helping make EVs more accessible to consumers. VP, MINI of the Americas, Michael Peyton, says that the automaker is “pleased to offer more people the ability to experience a drive charged with passion in the form of the MINI Cooper SE, an EV that is built ‘for the drive.’”
A MINI electric car is a natural progression of the brand’s trajectory. Back in 1959, Sir Alec Issigonis developed the first MINI with the intent of delivering a solution to the crushing fuel crisis: a fuel-sipping car that was also comfortable. Today, MINI is trailblazing the EV market, reducing our driving footprint and bringing viable, sustainable alternatives to the fore.
The 2020 MINI Cooper SE thrills with a low center of gravity, zippy powertrain, and that trademark handling we all know and love. This isn’t a Porsche 911 GT RS (top speed: 211, 0-60 in 2.7 seconds) – but MINI aficionados don’t expect that. They expect to handle a twisting, turning labyrinth with sharp corners effortlessly – and with a heart-pounding soundtrack in the background. Or, you know, a trip to the grocery store through narrow city streets. This MINI electric car generates 181 horsepower and 199 lb-ft of torque, powering the EV from 0 to 60 in 6.9 seconds and a top speed of 93 mph.
