The 2024 Mini Cooper EV is built on the Spotlight electric-vehicle-focused platform, designed with a longer wheelbase and wider track compared to its predecessor. Despite these changes, the overall length of the vehicle remains largely consistent at around 3.8 meters (149.6 inches), ensuring a blend of improved interior space and handling dynamics.

The base Cooper E trim is equipped with a 40-kilowatt-hour battery, providing an estimated range of approximately 386 kilometers. The electric powertrain will incorporate a single motor generating 181 horsepower. For those seeking enhanced performance, the Cooper SE variant will feature a 54-kWh battery pack, delivering 215 horsepower. Anticipated starting prices for the Cooper EV in the UK are expected to be around 30,000 pounds, with sales anticipated to begin during the summer of 2024.
