This electric vehicle is a conceptMini will present the production version of the Electric Concept in the second half of 2019. It is expected that it will be named Mini Cooper S E. The Cooper S E will be available to order in the Q4 2019 and should be in showrooms by late 2019. Mini has not released any specifications for the Electric Concept, but it's almost certain that the Cooper S E will be built on the UKL1 platform. The Cooper S E is also expected to get the drivetrain of the BMW i3s. Specifications on this page have been based on these rumours. All specifications with an * are estimates.

Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)
Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Mini Electric Concept. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.
NOTE: Mini has not released details about the on-board charger of the Electric Concept. The information below is based on estimatation of the most likely on-board charger.
|Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)|
|Charging Point||Max. Power||Power||Time||Rate|
|Wall Plug (2.3 kW)||230V / 1x10A||2.3 kW||14 hours||8 mph|
|1-phase 16A (3.7 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW||8h45m||12 mph|
|1-phase 32A (7.4 kW)||230V / 1x32A||7.4 kW||4h30m||24 mph|

|3-phase 32A (22 kW)||400V / 3x16A||11 kW †||3 hours||36 mph|
† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.
Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)
Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Mini Electric Concept.
Mini has not released details about rapid charging the Electric Concept. The information below is based on estimated values of the most likely rapid charging capabilities.
- Max. Power: maximum charging power the vehicle can use
- Avg. Power: average charging power over a session from 10% to 80%
- Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%

All about the Mini Electric Concept
This electric vehicle is a concept: data marked with * are estimates and other data might not be officially confirmed. The text below is written as if the Mini Electric Concept would be available today. Please note that data for the final production version might differ significantly from the concept. The purpose of listing this concept vehicle is to give an insight in upcoming vehicles and EV trends.
The Mini Electric Concept has an estimatedn On The Road Price (OTR) of £31,000. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Mini Electric Concept is eligible for the Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £3,500. The grant will be applied to the final invoice price of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Mini Electric Concept is £27,500.
Drivetrain and Performance
The Mini Electric Concept is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The estimated maximum power of the Mini Electric Concept is 135 kW (181 hp). The estimated maximum torque is 199 lb-ft. The Mini Electric Concept is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in an estimated 7.0 seconds. The estimated top speed is 93 mph.
Battery and Charging
The battery of the Mini Electric Concept has an estimated total capacity of 33.2 kWh. The usable capacity is 27.2 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 105 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.
Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 11 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 3 hours. However, a 3-phase grid connection is needed to achieve this. The majority of homes and charge points currently do not have this connection. In most cases the maximum charging power will be 7.4 kW, allowing for a charge time of 4 hours 30 minutes and a charge rate of 24 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 14 hours.
Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection (expected). The maximum rapid charge power is 50 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 45 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 30 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 70 miles of range.
The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Mini Electric Concept is about 255 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 156 mpg in a traditional petrol car.
The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.
The Mini Electric Concept emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
