45,000+ Reservations for The MINI Cooper SE

The recently introduced all-electric MINI Cooper SE looks to be highly popular with more than 45,000 pre-orders already.

A month ago, MINI introduced their first very first production EV in its history, the MINI Cooper SE. The three-door hatch sure looks popular already since more than 45,000 reservations were made.

Made popular by Tesla, the pre-orders are more and more widespread for electric cars. Volkswagen jumped into that bandwagon with the e-Golf and the ID.3 and Porsche did it for the upcoming Taycan, a many more manufacturers too. As for BMW, they launched their pre-order campaign with the recently unveiled MINI Cooper SE last month.

In an interview with the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung, Elena Eder, project manager for the electric MINI, confirmed that the British manufacturer has already over 45,000 pre-orders for their Cooper EV.

The MINI is said to have a range of 270 km (WLTP cycle) thanks to its 32.6 kWh battery pack. The latter generates 184 hp and 199 lb-ft of torque. This will make the car sprint from 0 to 100 km/h 7.3 seconds says MINI.

The production of the Cooper SE will start at the MINI Plant Oxford on November 1st while the deliveries are slated to start in March 2020. The EV is confirmed for Canada but no dates are set for its launch this side of the pond.
