MINI Malaysia has introduced the highly exclusive MINI Electric First Edition for the first time in the country, just a month after the New All-Electric MINI made its Malaysian debut.
Only 15 units of the unique all-electric three-door hatch will be made available complete with distinct design aesthetics, and luxury in comfort.
Featuring bespoke side scuttles and door sills that bear the indication of units available such as “one of fifteen”, the MINI Electric First Edition also debuts an all-new exterior colour in the stunning MINI Yours Enigmatic Black.
If Black is not your thing, the MINI Electric First Edition is also available in the popular White Silver with Energetic Yellow accents.
The MINI Electric First Edition presents premium luxury and comfort at its finest in the vehicle’s interior with the MINI Yours Walknappa Leather Lounge Upholstery and MINI Yours Walknappa Leather Steering.
At night, the electrified MINI comes to life with the MINI Yours Illuminated Interior Surface as it lights up from a choice of 12 ambient light colours. Additionally, there is also a Panoramic Glass Roof.
The exclusive three-door hatch is also equipped with the Lights Package which includes the Matrix LED headlights and LED rear lights featuring the iconic Union Jack design, interior and exterior mirrors with anti-dazzle function, as well as 17-inch wheels in the MINI Electric Power Spoke two-tone with run flat tyres.
Like the New All-Electric MINI, the MINI Electric First Edition is powered by the latest dynamic version of the synchronous electric motor developed by the BMW Group.
While the front-axle electric engine is capable of producing 184 hp, there is also a 12-module T-shaped battery unit with a net capacity of 28.9kWh. The MINI Electric First Edition has a peak torque of 270Nm, and emits zero carbon emissions locally while consuming 16.8 – 14.8kWh per 100km of travel.
The MINI Electric First Edition has a maximum speed of 150km/h and a driving range of up to 234km (WLTP) or 270km (NEDC) while capable of achieving the century sprint in 7.3 seconds. Paired to the motor is a single-speed transmission and integrated differential.
The MINI Electric First Edition is complete with the single-pedal drive which is part of the characteristic driving experience in the All-Electric MINI. This means the electrically powered vehicle can be appropriately decelerated at low speeds without using the brake system and therefore being driven using a single pedal.
The electrified MINI also features the actuator-contiguous wheel slip limiter (ARB) function which significantly improves traction by providing faster control. Four driving modes in Sport, Mid, Green and Green+ are available in the MINI Electric First Edition.
Inside, there is the MINI Electric Cockpit Fascia, MINI Electric Start/Stop button in Yellow, MINI Electric velour floor mats, an electronic selector lever with Electric design, as well as the brake energy recuperation toggle.
Exclusively in the MINI Electric First Edition is the MINI Yours Walknappa Leather Lounge Upholstery and MINI Yours Walknappa Leather Lounge Steering Wheel. The exclusive MINI is also complete with Leather Cross Punch seats in Carbon Black, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, as well as the MINI 12-Colour Illuminated ambient lighting.
As with the New All-Electric MINI, the luggage capacity of this exclusive MINI is 211 litres with the ability to expand up to 731 litres.
The MINI Electric First Edition is equipped with a wealth of navigational information via an 8.8-inch MINI Navigation System featuring the full MINI Connected suite including Teleservices, Remote Services, Intelligent Emergency Call, MINI Online and Apple Carplay.
The car also arrives with Head Up Display, 12-Speaker Harman Kardon Sound System, and wireless charging function for mobile phones.
The Digital Instrument Cluster comes standard with the MINI Electric First Edition, capable of displaying key information like speed, range, state of charge of the battery. It can also display the current MINI Driving Mode, which then calibrates the colour shown on the light ring in the central instrument accordingly.
Where charging is concerned, the MINI Electric First Edition only requires approximately 36 minutes to go from zero to 80% charge when recharging at a DC charging station.
Similarly, the MINI Wallbox Plus provides an 80% charge in just two and half hours. At home, the MINI can be charged to 80% in 12 hours with the yellow contingency charging cable which is available with the vehicle. Owners can also view the charging progress on the inside of the charging flap.
The MINI Electric First Edition 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.
