The SE is based on the standard three-door Cooper S and borrows its electric motor from the BMW i3S. It makes 184PS of maximum power and 270Nm of peak torque. This gives the car a 0-100kmph time of 7.3 seconds, with a top speed of 150kmph. (Image: BMW media center)

Mini has equipped the Cooper SE with three driving modes including Green, Green+ and Sport. It also gets a 32.6kWh battery pack which can go for 270km on a single charge. A standard charger takes up to 2.5 hours to charge it from 0-80 percent, while a 50kW fast charger can do the same in 35 minutes. (Image: BMW media center)

The car has an increased weight of 1365kgs, which is 165kgs heavier than the standard Cooper S. However, it has a 30mm lower centre of gravity which compensates for the added weight and improves handling. (Image: BMW media center)

The car is expected to be put on sale in the first half of next year. There has been no official announcement from the company’s side so it is still unclear whether the car will make it to Indian shores. (Image: BMW media center)
