The new MINI Cooper SE.

Posted on 09. Jul, 2019 by in BMW Canada

Urban mobility with quite electric expostulate can now also be experienced
in hallmark MINI style. The new MINI Cooper SE (combined fuel
consumption: 0.0 l/100 km; total appetite consumption:
15.0 – 13.2 kWh/100 km; total CO2 emissions: 0 g/km*)
creates it possible. It combines tolerable mobility with a riding
fun, fluent pattern and reward peculiarity that are customary of MINI.
As such, a initial usually electrically powered indication of a British
code offers pristine MINI feeling with locally emissions-free driving.

The extemporaneous appetite smoothness of a 135 kW/184 hp motor, the
brand-specific front-wheel drive, and a innovative pushing dynamics
complement with round trip tying tighten to a actuator, give a new
MINI Cooper SE a quite exhilarated and observable agility, known
as a go-kart feeling. Its model-specific lithium-ion battery enables
a operation of 235 to 270 kilometres*. The high-voltage battery is
situated low in a automobile floor, ensuring there are no limitations
in terms of luggage cell volume as compared to the
conventionally powered MINI 3 Door.

With a new MINI Cooper SE, a British code once again sets a
pioneering procedure for civic mobility. 60 years ago, a revolutionary
pattern component of a classical Mini energetic a basement for maximum
interior space within a smallest aspect area. The MINI was launched in
2001 – a complicated re-interpretation of artistic space use and unique
roving fun that became a strange in a reward shred of small
cars. The new MINI Cooper SE will be a initial quite electric premium
tiny car, paving a approach to a tolerable nonetheless during a same time highly
romantic pushing knowledge in civic traffic.

Vehicle concept: a genuine MINI to a core.

The new MINI Cooper SE is a initial indication to mix electromobility
in an civic environment with a hallmark code properties of a original
in a reward shred of tiny cars. The initial ever quite electrica
indication of a British code is a genuine MINI to a core. Its vehicle
judgment is formed on a MINI 3 Door. The dimensions, design, space and
interior ambience of a new MINI Cooper SE are clearly formed on the
conventionally powered vehicle, a growth of that already took
comment of a enlargement of a indication operation to embody a electrically
powered version.

The new MINI Cooper SE is constructed in a brand’s home country. It
comes off a prolongation line during a MINI plant in Oxford along with
a conventionally powered versions of a model. Its expostulate technology
comes from a BMW Group cunning centres for electromobility in
Dingolfing and Landshut.

Instead of a petrol or diesel engine, there is an electric motor
underneath a carp of a new MINI Cooper SE. The compress territory with
integrated appetite wiring and smoothness is positioned in the
front territory of a support support by means of a plain tube structure.
The high-voltage battery with model-specific pattern is done up
of lithium-ions cells subdivided into 12 modules. They form a T-shaped
territory positioned in a automobile floor, providing a sum appetite content
of 32.6 kWh.

The electric engine is not usually smaller though also significantly lighter
than a explosion engine, thereby contributing to a outstandingly
agreeable spindle bucket placement of a new MINI Cooper SE. Along
with a reduce centre of gravity, this gives a electrically powered
indication flexible handling, creation it autarchic and easy to control even when
cornering during high speed. The new MINI Cooper SE also offers extremely
secure road-holding, not slightest due to a position of a high-voltage
battery. It is placed low in a automobile building between a front
seats and next a behind seats. As a outcome of this arrangement there
are no boundary whatsoever to a use of a luggage cell space
as compared to a conventionally powered indication versions. As in the
MINI 3 Door with explosion engine, a luggage volume underneath the
tailgate is 211 litres, expanding to 731 litres when a rear
backrests are folded down. The usually quantifiable difference: in sequence to
safeguard a applicable belligerent clearway for a high-voltage battery
commissioned in a automobile floor, a physique of a new MINI Cooper SE is
positioned some 18 millimetres aloft than in a conventionally
powered model.

All components of a electric expostulate are stable by means of
model-specific constructional comforts and immediately switched off in the
eventuality of a collision. The reserve judgment for a new MINI Cooper SE is
so in line with a high standards of a BMW Group, that go well
over authorised requirements. The appetite wiring are safeguarded by the
reinforced fender support and a engine support frame, while the
high-voltage battery is stable by a plain bottom plate. With an
unladen DIN weight of 1 365 kilograms, a electric indication is usually some
145 kilograms heavier than a MINI Cooper S 3 Door with Steptronic transmission.

Characteristic MINI pattern with model-specific accentuations.

Selective modifications and watchful differentiations per the
conventionally powered indication are also evil of a pattern of
a new MINI Cooper SE. Powerful proportions, a customary three-part
structure consisting of a physique frame, all-round hothouse and roof,
brief overhangs and widely set wheels are again a characteristic
comforts that set a initial quite electrically powered MINI apart
from a masses. Precisely practical accentuations prove its
future-oriented expostulate system. The assign tie is located above
a right-hand behind round – accurately where a fuel filler neck is
positioned on a conventionally powered MINI 3 Door. An embossed MINI
Electric trademark outlines a disproportion in terms of appetite input. Yellow
versions of this signet seem on a parallel spin indicator inserts,
famous as side scuttles, as good as on a tailgate and front radiator
grill. The executive component of a MINI Cooper SE front territory also
comforts a hallmark hexagonal contour, though this is sealed because
a electric engine requires really tiny cooling air. A yellow
musical bar on a griddle and extraneous counterpart caps are finished in
a same colour, thereby rounding off a model-specific design
features. The MINI Cooper SE is propitious as customary with LED headlamps.

Like a model-specific front radiator grill, a mostly closed
undercarriage and a admirably designed behind apron minister to
shortening aerodynamic drag. The fact that a electrically powered MINI
does not need an empty complement serve facilitates atmosphere ducting in
a undercarriage and during a rear. An aerodynamically optimised
aspect is also to be found on a discretionary 17-inch light amalgamate wheels
with asymmetrical pattern in a MINI Electric Corona Spoke 2-tone
version. Like a customary 16-inch light amalgamate wheels in MINI Electric
Revolite Spoke design, a latter are accessible exclusively for the
new MINI Cooper SE.

Pure pushing fun: electric engine with 135 kW/184 hp.

Spontaneously instituted expostulate torque and continual appetite delivery
not interrupted by rigging shifts – these are a evil features
of a expostulate record propitious in a new MINI Cooper SE. They ensure
hallmark MINI pushing fun in a novel form that offers a particularly
exhilarated experience. The appetite source is a latest, rarely powerful
chronicle of a synchronous electric engine grown by a BMW Group.
The specific pattern component of a expostulate enables a high spin of
appetite smoothness that extends into high engine speed ranges, an
unusually high spin of potency and smooth, low-vibration
running. The engine of a new MINI Cooper SE mobilises a maximum
outlay of 135 kW/184 hp. Its limit torque of 270 Nm is already
accessible from standstill, as is evil of electric motors.
Power smoothness to a front wheels is by means of a transmission
with single-stage pattern and integrated differential.

As a result, a new MINI Cooper SE develops stirring forward
thrust during any transformation of a accelerator pedal, ensuring an
unusually energetic pushing knowledge in civic trade in
particular. The new MINI Cooper SE accelerates from hire to
60 km/h in usually 3.9 seconds. Over a initial 60 metres it effortlessly
keeps gait with conventionally powered sports cars. The purely
electrically powered MINI accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.3
seconds; a tip speed is singular to 150 km/h.

The new MINI Cooper SE develops a sporty aptitude not usually with
distinguished impetuosity though also probably noiselessly. For this reason
it is propitious as customary with acoustic walking protection. A
sole sound total generally for a MINI Cooper SE is
generated around a orator system. The sound pattern in a low speed
operation guarantees an acoustic participation on a highway that is customary of MINI.

Thrilling lively interjection to innovative pushing dynamics system.

Electric expostulate takes a customary MINI judgment of go-kart feeling into
an wholly new and fascinating dimension. The fascinating agile
doing of a new MINI Cooper SE is upheld by suspension
record that has been polished and harmonised on a model-specific
basis. In and with quite electric expostulate too, the
tried-and-tested pattern component of a cessation – with
single-joint open strut during a front, a multilink behind spindle that is
singular within a rival margin and electromechanical steering –
guarantees limit float stability, steering pointing and spontaneity
when changing direction. With a centre of sobriety that is during slightest 30
millimetres reduce than in a MINI Cooper S, best weight
placement helps a new MINI Cooper SE grasp a spin of cornering
dynamics that is singular within a tiny automobile segment.

In sequence to safeguard that a high spin of torque granted by the
electric engine immediately on set-off can be put to use for hallmark
code roving fun though detriment of traction, a new MINI Cooper SE has
an innovative DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) system. This expostulate slip
control system, designed privately for a extemporaneous power
smoothness supposing by electric motors, creates for quite supreme
pushing qualities in all highway and continue conditions. The so-called
wheel-slip tying tighten to a actuator means that control
operations are distributed directly inside a expostulate complement rather than
in a apart control territory with prolonged vigilance pathways, as is a box in
compulsory pushing fortitude systems. This merely optimises
both set-off traction and pushing fortitude in stop appetite recovery
mode, as good as when accelerating out of parsimonious bends.

MINI Driving Modes with 4 settings.

The initial quite electrically powered MINI also enables a motorist to
adjust a automobile environment to a stream conditions on a highway as well
as to their possess personal preferences. The MINI Driving Modes are
comparison by means of a switch located on a right-hand side of the
toggle bar. There are 4 modes to select from in a MINI Cooper SE.
Sport mode differs from a customary MID setting, with a some-more direct
evil steering hook and a quite extemporaneous response
of a expostulate system.

The comfort-oriented steering characteristics of a MID environment are
also active in GREEN mode, as good as in a new GREEN+ mode specially
configured for a new MINI Cooper SE. What is more, a expostulate system
in these dual latter modes is geared towards limit efficiency. In
GREEN+ mode, additionally comparison comfort functions such as heating,
atmosphere conditioning and chair heating are singular or deactivated in order
to boost a operation of a vehicle.

Brake appetite liberation for pattern during dual levels.

Part of a evil pushing knowledge in an electrically
powered BMW Group indication is a supposed one-pedal feeling. In urban
trade in particular, a automobile merely decelerates as shortly as
a motorist removes their feet from a accelerator. This outcome occurs
since in coasting mode a electric engine performs a duty of a
generator, transforming kinetic appetite behind into electric power, which
is in spin fed behind into a high-voltage battery. The outcome of this
is that a electrically powered automobile can be appropriately
decelerated during low speeds though regulating a stop complement and can
therefore be driven regulating a singular pedal. The border to that brake
appetite is recovered and a automobile is decelerated during coasting
phases can be energetic around a engine control programming system.

The new MINI Cooper SE is a initial electrically powered BMW Group
indication in that a motorist can change a grade of recuperation
efficiency. A toggle switch positioned to a left of a start/stop
territory provides a choice of exhilarated or usually low-level recuperation
with a applicable deceleration impact – regardless of a MINI Driving
Modes. In this way, a deceleration response on bucket annulment can be
precisely blending to a driver’s personal pushing character when adopting
a energetic pushing style, for example. Depending on individual
preferences, it is probable to make use of a movement accessible on
entering a hook or else move about a some-more exhilarated braking effect. In
sequence to safeguard limit potency in a MINI Cooper SE, a high
spin of recuperation is automatically enclosed in a standard
environment any time a engine is started.

Model-specific cockpit with digital instrument panel.

The new MINI Cooper SE is propitious as customary with a model-specific
instrument cluster consisting of a 5.5-inch colour shade in Black
Panel pattern behind a steering wheel. At a centre of this fully
digital screen, a highway speed is shown in total with a peripheral
scale band. The speed rope is also displayed in a light ring of the
executive instrument – in red (SPORT mode), white (MID) or immature (GREEN
and GREEN+), according to a mode selected.

Other digital displays in a instrument cluster yield information
on a assign spin of a high-voltage battery, a currently
comparison MINI Driving Mode, a standing of a motorist assistance
systems and Check Control messages. In addition, sum of a range
available, stream expostulate power, outward temperature, time and mileage
are displayed, along with trade pointer showing reports and
high-guiding directions from a navigation system. What is more, it
is probable to entrance write hit and audio programme lists.

During charging, a digital instrument row serve supplies
critical information. If a automobile is connected to a appetite socket
or charging station, it is probable to review not usually a time and
outward feverishness though also a accessible operation and a assign status
in per cent. The time is also displayed during that a high-voltage
battery will be entirely charged. The colour of a row changes
depending on a situation: from orange during initialisation to
yellow in a march of a charging process, and immature when the
appetite pot are entirely refreshed. Any charging blunder is indicated
by means of red colouring.

Other special interior comforts embody a model-specific gear
selector push on a centre console. The new MINI Cooper SE is also
propitious with an electric parking stop that is activated and triggered
by means of a switch on a centre console.

MINI ELECTRIC provides coherence when charging.

The appetite for electrifying pushing fun is drawn by a new
MINI Cooper SE from a appetite grid, to that it can be connected around a
compulsory domicile appetite socket, a MINI ELECTRIC Wallbox or a
open charging station. Its charging tie is designed for AC
and DC charging regulating Type 2 and CCS Combo 2 plugs. Above the
connection, a assign spin indicator displays orange signals for
initialisation, pulsating yellow light for an ongoing charging
operation, and immature light for a entirely charged battery.

The customary charging wire is accessible for tie to a
domicile socket. A MINI ELECTRIC Wallbox is optionally accessible for
home charging as good as a three-phase wire for use during public
charging stations. Both options concede a high-voltage battery of the
new MINI Cooper SE to be charged with a limit ability of 11 kW – to
80 percent in dual and a half hours, and 100 percent in 3 and a
half hours. A DC fast-charging hire allows a vehicle’s energy
pot to be rested even some-more quickly. The charging territory of the
new MINI Cooper SE is designed for a limit charging ability of
50 kW, permitting an 80 per cent assign to be achieved in usually 35 minutes.

An designation use is also charity in and with a MINI
ELECTRIC Wallbox. The wallbox can be mounted in garages as good as in
lonesome automobile ports. The ChargeNow use is accessible for maximum
charging convenience: this gives business entrance to a world’s
biggest network of open charging stations. Registration during the
charging hire and remuneration of a electric stream used is around the
ChargeNow label or a applicable smartphone app.

2-zone involuntary atmosphere conditioning with feverishness siphon technology
and auxiliary heating.

The customary trim of a new MINI Cooper SE includes a 2-zone
involuntary atmosphere conditioning complement with apart movement and
feverishness control for a motorist and front newcomer sides. The
interior is exhilarated by means of a feverishness siphon that collects rubbish heat
from a motor, expostulate control, high-voltage battery and outward air
before feeding it into a atmosphere conditioning system. The feverishness pump
grown for a new MINI Cooper SE is quite efficient. It
uses 75 per cent reduction appetite than a compulsory electric heating
complement and provides a high spin of meridian comfort in winter mode. In
sequence to boost range, a cooling and heating circuits are directly
related to a expostulate technology, combining a rarely fit overall
system. An integrated control complement guarantees a pleasing interior
feverishness and an ideal handling feverishness for a high-voltage
battery during a same time – exclusively of any other, by means of
cooling and heating.

The involuntary atmosphere conditioning of a new MINI Cooper SE also offers
an auxiliary heating and a still atmosphere conditioning function. This
enables a interior to be exhilarated adult or cooled down to a specified
feverishness before environment off. The motorist can use a MINI Connected
Remote App to set a dictated time of depart so as to
pre-condition a interior in allege as required.

Navigation complement as standard, model-specific MINI Connected Services.

The customary programme of apparatus in a new MINI Cooper SE also
includes a navigation complement as good as executive instrument display
apparatus and MINI Connected services that are specifically geared towards
electromobility. The eDrive shade provides information on a current
upsurge of appetite and a operation as good as charity ways of increasing
a automobile operation by deactivating comfort functions or boosting
recuperation. On a navigation map it is probable to arrangement a range
round that indicates a movement radius of a MINI Cooper SE
depending on assign level. When a track superintendence starts, it displays
a fastest and shortest track and also suggests a GREEN route
involving a lowest spin of appetite consumption.

The customary Connected Navigation includes a 6.5-inch touchscreen in
a executive instrument. This allows a use Real Time Traffic
Information to be used, as good as a internet height MINI Online
and a Apple CarPlay preparation. The mobile phone tie also
means that a vehicle’s navigation map is updated automatically.
Remote Services concede a motorist to arrangement sum of battery charge
standing and operation on a smartphone around a MINI Connected App, and it is
also probable to beget statistics on a car’s appetite consumption.
In serve there is a map perspective that shows open charging stations
in a closeness of a vehicle. Meanwhile, not usually can a headlight
flasher, horn, movement and doorway lock/unlock duty be remotely
activated, though so can a interior pre-conditioning function. When the
automobile is connected to a appetite grid, a motorist can also control
a charging routine around Remote Services. The discretionary apparatus item
Connected Navigation Plus also includes an 8.8-inch colour shade and
a duty Telephony with Wireless Charging.

High-end customary equipment, resourceful customisation.

As a addition to a endless and high-quality operation of standard
equipment, 4 extraneous and interior packages are accessible for the
new MINI Cooper SE that any embody a specific multiple of
extraneous finish, light amalgamate wheels, chair upholstery and interior
fittings. In a same approach as a packages Salt, Pepper and Chili
accessible for a stream MINI models, these capacitate resourceful vehicle
customisation that can be facilely practical by a customer. The
apparatus packages Trim S and Trim M embody Connected Navigation,
while Connected Navigation Plus forms partial of a packages Trim L and
Trim XL. The apparatus package Trim S also offers a choice between the
physique finishes Moonwalk Grey lead and White Silver metallic, while
in and with a packages Trim M and Trim L there is
additionally a choice of a colours Chili Red, British Racing Green
lead and Midnight Black metallic. What is more, a paint finish
MINI Yours Enigmatic Black is additionally accessible for a package
