The world is waiting with great anticipation for the introduction of the 2022 Mini Cooper electric car. So far, pundits reveal that it will perhaps be the most affordable electric vehicle on the market but, more importantly, it will still come with many features and options that will put its other electric vehicle competitors at a huge disadvantage.
What Does the 2022 Mini Cooper EV have to offer?
Like previous Mini Coopers, the 2022 will be a two-door all-electric vehicle with sturdy handling, swift accelerations, and extreme stability on all terrains.
The one major difference compared to its competitors will be the smaller battery pack, which will limit the Mini Cooper’s driving range to only 110 miles on a full charge.
2022 Cooper SE Features
To overcome the shorter driving distance, the manufacturer has indicated that the 2022 Cooper SE will be one of the least expensive electric vehicles on the market.
But does that mean it will be bare of all the typical extraordinary features of the Mini? The exact opposite is true: the car will come with a host of popular customizable features.
The 2022 Mini Cooper EV is geared towards a certain demographic, those who typically don’t venture out of the city or go on long journeys. Therefore, they will not need to worry about the shorter driving range.
The 2022 Cooper SE looks much the same as the past models, with a small rear seat and tiny cargo space.
The limited cargo space is perfectly suited for a few grocery bags, a laptop, and perhaps a small carry-on. The space is not designed for large luggage.
Released in late 2021
The prototype of the 2022 Mini Cooper electric vehicle has been tested in China, where it will be introduced in the latter part of 2021.
Some novel design features of the Mini 2002 will be a trunk lid and a slightly changed wing mirror. There will also be some minor alterations to the rear and front bumpers to enhance the aesthetics.
With electrical vehicles constantly improving, the Mini electric will come with a battery pack of 28.9kWh/32.6 kWh.
It is hoped that the smaller battery will lead to a faster charge time of fewer than 60 minutes, but all this remains speculative as the manufacturers have been relatively quiet about the features of the Mini electric vehicle.
Currently, there is much global interest in Mini Cooper vehicles primarily because they are solid cars with a great reputation.
They are easy to handle and excellent for driving, especially in urban areas. While the exact price remains to be determined, it will be about $500 more than the 2021 model.
The base price for the Mini Cooper EV will start at $23,750, which is a very respectable and affordable price.
