The New 2020 All-Electric MINI made its Malaysian debut today –further expanding the premium electrified segment of the MINI portfolio.
The minimalistic three-door hatch arrives with an electrifying new design language that sets the model apart in the MINI portfolio, while building upon the 60-year heritage of the MINI brand.
Powering the electric MINI is an electric motor developed by the BMW Group that is capable of up to 184 HP and 270 Nm of torque, as well as a 12-module T-shaped battery unit with a net capacity of 28.9kWh.
Reaching a maximum speed of 150km/h and a driving range of up to 234km (WLTP) or 270km (NEDC), the New All-Electric MINI is also capable of achieving the century sprint in 7.3 seconds. The new three-door hatch will also be driven with a single-speed transmission and integrated differential.
There are four driving modes: Sport, Mid, Green and the new Green+mode –which increases the electric range by limiting selected comfort functions.
The car can be recharged up to 80% within just two and a half hours with the MINI Wallbox Plus. When driving, brake energy regeneration from decelerating the vehicle not only feeds back into the high-voltage battery but also allows for the vehicle to be driven using only a single pedal.
The new All-Electric MINI is also the brand’s model to feature a 5.5-inch Digital Instrument Cluster for smoother accessibility to key driving information.
Identical in size to the MINI Cooper S, the New All-Electric MINI features a brand-new electrifying appearance that is accentuated by elements in the youthful Energetic Yellow offering. The vehicle arrives with the model-specific bumper and radiator grille in Vigorous Grey with yellow E-Badge.
Grille blades will be available in two colours: Vigorous Grey or Energetic Yellow. With the Lights package, the new three-door hatch is equipped with Matrix LED headlights and LED rear lights featuring the iconic Union Jack design.
Along the sides, the New All-Electric MINI features adapted spats geometry, the E-Badge on the side scuttle, as well as aero-optimised mirror caps in either Black or Energetic Yellow. Interior and exterior mirrors with anti-dazzle function are also equipped as standard. The new MINI rides on 17-inch wheels in the MINI Electric Power Spoke two-tone with run flat tyres.
Moving to the back, the New All-Electric MINI features a charging flap with embossed E-badge in the chosen body colour. The tailgate handle in Vigorous Grey grille contrast. The model badge and E-Badge with yellow accents are also fitted as standard to the new three-door hatch, along with the model-specific rear bumper with diffuser.
The New All-Electric MINI is also the first MINI model in Malaysia to be equipped with the Driving Assistant system. This camera-based driving assistance system package consists of the Speed Limit info, as well as the digital high-beam assistant which automatically activates at speeds of 50 km/h and higher, or when there is insufficient exterior lighting.
The Driving Assistant system is also equipped with the person warning with light city braking function and the approach control warning with light city braking function –both ensuring maximum safety during potential collision by preconditioning the brakes for faster brake response and shorter braking distances.
If the impact cannot be avoided, the braking functions help to reduce the impact speed.
The New All-Electric MINI is also equipped with the Park Assistant, front and rear Park Distance Control, Cruise Control with braking function, along with the Wired packages as standard.
Exterior colour offerings of the New All-Electric MINI include the exclusive White Silver with Energetic Yellow pairing, the British Racing Green, and the Chili Red.
Last but not least, the New All-Electric MINI is covered by MINI Malaysia’s 5 Years Roadside Assistance programme, available for all new MINI vehicles with a comprehensive list of services that include a 24-Hour, 365-days-a-year Accident and Help on the Phone and On the Spot Hotline, Free Towing Services and when needed (over 200KM from residential home), Replacement Vehicle, Seamless Mobility, Accommodation, Mobility Services Solutions as well as Repatriation services.
