The electric powered Mini Cooper SE Convertible is formally a production vehicle! Unfortunately, that manufacturing is completely slated for Europe proper now, but if we all yell loudly plenty of, possibly we can get Mini to mail some throughout the ocean.
In reality, the likelihood of the SE Convertible coming listed here are almost zero, if not zero. Mini is only making 999 of them as a modest sequence experiment of types. Its powertrain and battery pack is the exact as the hardtop SE. That suggests it is sporting a single front motor with 184 horsepower. The -62 mph time for the Convertible is 8.2 seconds, and the electrically operated soft leading (with a Union Jack) can be deployed at speeds up to 18 mph. Variety is just 125 miles on the optimistic WLTP cycle, which is substantially considerably less than the hardtop’s max of 145 miles. Listed here in the U.S., the Mini SE is only rated for 114 miles on the EPA screening cycle. If Mini at any time brought it here, we’d count on the Convertible to endure a equally proportioned vary penalty.
Mini applies a quantity of one of a kind exterior appointments to the SE Convertible. For starters, it’s only likely to be offered in possibly Enigmatic Black or White Silver. The doorway handles, aspect scuttles and light-weight/grille surrounds are then finished in bronze. All of the logos and design lettering gets painted in a shiny black. Additionally, the “E” symbol is displayed throughout the front grille with a bronze finish.
You’ll recognize “1 of 999” lettering on the facet scuttles, and if you open the doorway to search at the sills, the similar “1 of 999” emblem is present all over again. The steering wheel gets an “E” badge, and the inside is only available in a one spec. Black leather-based and heated seats arrive typical, and the shiny black trim does, much too. Yellow accents, the exact same as you get in the Hardtop, all emphasize the electrical character of the car.
Output will just take location in the Netherlands, and cars will start off shipping and delivery in April this yr.
