MINI Cooper SE has 45,000 registrations 18 days after pre-orders are openBMW announced the MINI Cooper SE on July 9th and pre-orders for the vehicle were open 10 days later on July 19th. In an interview with Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung on August 6th, Elena Eder, project manager for the new MINI Cooper SE, said that there are 45,000 registrations for this vehicle. She has also confirmed that production of the car will begin on November 1st in Oxford, where the ICE MINIs are produced as well. Ms Eder also elaborated on the Brexit issue saying that while this is "a disruptive factor" this does not affect them and BMW is prepared for all cases.

MINI Cooper SE is based on the already familiar BMW i3s permanent magnet synchronous motor with 135 kW of power (184 hp) and 270 Nm of torque. It has a top speed of 150 km/h and a 0-100 km/h acceleration of 7.3 seconds. A major difference here is that instead of being on the rear axle like on the BMW i3s, the electric motor is on the front axle. The battery pack has a capacity of 32.6 kWh similar to the one on the 2018 BMW i3s 33 kWh and consists of 12 modules. The pack is T-shaped. Respectively, the WLTP range is similar - from 235 to 270 km.

The model arrives with an 11 kW Type 2 and CCS Combo 2 charger onboard and supports 50 kW DC fast charging. The combined power consumption is 15-13.2 kWh/100 km. The boot capacity is 211 litres and when the rear seats are folded, you get 731 litres of boot space. The suspension system includes a single-joint spring strut at the front and a multilink rear axle that is unique within the competitive field and electromechanical steering.

MINI Cooper SE has a two-level regen and an AVAS system for pedestrian warning already installed. There are 4 driving modes - MID, Sport, Green and Green+. The basic trim of the model includes LED headlights, 2-zone automatic air-conditioning, heating with heat pump technology, auxiliary heating, electric parking brake and Connected Navigation. The price for the base version will be around €32,500. In this price range you can get a Honda e (~€32,000), Renault Zoe (€31,990) or an Opel Corsa-e (from €29,900).Source
