Recognized for its charismatic design and compact build, a Mini car often evokes an immediate charm. The company’s Head of Design, Oliver Heilmer, dubs this allure “Charismatic Simplicity.” This approach centers on a reduced, clear design language that resonates with Mini enthusiasts. However, Mini acknowledges that the appeal must extend beyond aesthetics.

Built on BMW Group’s FAAR platform, the new Cooper will feature two trims—the Cooper E and Cooper SE. The Cooper E prioritizes affordability, boasting a 40.7-kWh battery that provides 184 horsepower, 214 lb-ft of torque, and approximately 190 miles of range based on the European WLTP test cycle. The Cooper SE, equipped with a 54.2-kWh battery, elevates the statistics further with 218 horsepower, 243 lb-ft of torque, and an estimated 250 miles of range.

The 2024 Cooper models also introduce advancements in stability. The chassis has been widened, and the wheelbase extended, resulting in improved stability. Reinforced stabilizer mounts on the axles help counterbalance additional battery weight. Standard tire width has been increased to 225 mm, complemented by 18-inch wheels. A “Go-Kart” mode enhances agility and stability, while a “Green” mode maximizes range by adjusting motor behavior.

Charging times for the Cooper E and Cooper SE align with their midsize battery capacities. Direct current charging operates at 75 kW on the Cooper E and 95 kW on the Cooper SE, facilitating a 10% to 80% charge in less than 30 minutes.

Expanding its offerings, Mini introduces the all-electric Countryman for the first time. Available in four trims—Essential, Classic, Favored, and John Cooper Works—the Countryman Electric features variants like Countryman E and Countryman SE ALL4. The Countryman E yields 204 horsepower, 184 lb-ft of torque, and an estimated 287 miles of WLTP-certified range.

Mini has designed the Countryman for versatility, catering to varying power and range preferences. The company offers the Countryman with 313 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque, transmitting power through all four wheels. Charging times involve 22 kW alternating current charging and fast charging speeds at 130 kW for both Countryman models.

Incorporating sustainable practices, Mini employs recycled materials for components. The wheels consist of 70% secondary aluminum, and rare earth metals are unnecessary for synchronous motors. The interior incorporates recycled polyester.
