MINI, an all-electric brand within a few years?

Reports shows that MINI might consider going with a fully electric lineup in the near future.

MINI, an affiliate of the BMW Group, recently unveiled the MINI Cooper SE, the first true electric car of the brand. However, as Automobile Magazine reports, this electric incursion could extend to all the range within a few years.

According to the publication, MINI‘s senior management has decided to no longer offer internal combustion engines on future models of the UK-based division. In other words, the next MINI vehicles could all be developed to receive an electric motor.

The manufacturer could use a common platform – skateboard style – to reduce the cost of development, an architecture that would eventually be offered with battery packs of varying capacity. The latter would oscillate between 35 and 50 kWh, according to Automobile. Also, the magazine announces the arrival of a city car even smaller than the current MINI Cooper, a car that would be inspired by the MINI Rocketman concept unveiled in 2011.

And with the BMW electric offensive, not to mention the agreement in principle between the Bavarian giant and the Chinese group Great Wall on the development of electric vehicles in China, MINI’s shift to electric is no longer surprising.

This MINI Cooper SE could be a pioneer in its division, at least according to the publication!
