MINI Electric Car Battery and Charge Time
The MINI Electric confidently enters the EV market with ultra-fast charge time at public DC fast-charging stations, making it easy to stop and plug in when you’re out and about in Oakland. The following details have been confirmed by MINI:
32.6 kWh MINI Electric Battery
Charges to 80 percent in just 35 minutes when using a public DC fast-charging station.
Charges with a 120V outlet at home using your included charging cable; this will take quite a bit longer to reach a full charge, but many drivers will find that an overnight at-home charge will get them the range they need to commute to and from work each day.
You can also charge at a level 2 charging spot, which will take more time than a DC fast-charging station, but less time than a 120V outlet.
To keep the MINI Cooper Electric light and maneuverable and allow for plenty of luggage space, the battery is conveniently situated deep within the floor.
An Impressive Standard Suite of Features
To enhance your Livermore drives even further, you’ll find that the MINI electric car comes with a premium standard suite of features, including advanced heat pump technology, the convenience of keyless entry, in-vehicle navigation, and much more:
Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control
Electric Parking Brake
Heated Exterior Mirrors and Washer Jets
Heated Front Seats
Luxe Sport Leather Multifunctioning Steering Wheel
Combine these standard luxury amenities with zero CO2 emissions for a cleaner footprint, and the decision to switch to all-electric becomes pretty simple!
MINI Electric Motor Performance
In their own MINI Electric preview, Car and Driver state that the MINI Cooper Electric will boast a single electric motor that is capable of generating 181 hp and 199 lb-ft of torque. With front-wheel drive, it is claimed that the MINI electric car will reach 0 – 62 mph in 7.3 seconds. As for the driving range? The official specs have not yet been released for the United States, but in Europe, its range is confirmed to be 146 to 168 miles.
What Are the Prototype Test Drive Reviews Saying?
Though it isn’t set to release for sale until early 2020, the MINI Cooper Electric prototype has been test-driven by a number of big names, including Bloomberg. In their expert review following their test spin, Bloomberg had a number of glowing things to say about the MINI electric car, stating that the front-wheel drive model “has the acceleration (zero-62 mph in 7.3 seconds), low center of gravity, and intense agility of a go-kart.”
Bloomberg’s Hannah Elliott also appreciated the convenience of the thoughtfully low-set battery: “…there’s no obstructions along the bottom center of the floor, and the luggage compartment at the back is just as welcoming and spacious as that of any other Mini.”
