Gone in 2 hours! MINI Cooper SE electric sold out even before launch1 min read . Updated: 05 Nov 2021, 10:36 AM IST
The all-electric MINI Cooper SE, which claims to have a per-charge range of 270 kms, was opened for booking for a reservation amount of ₹1 lakh last month.
The booking for the new MINI Cooper SE was opened on October 29 at an amount of ₹1 lakh.
However, all the units were booked within a couple of hours. MINI has not even announced the date for the official price launch of the electric car yet.
The MINI Cooper SE claims to have a range of 270 kms on single charge. It is offered with a 32.6 kWh battery pack. The engine is capable of generating maximum output of 184 hp and 270 Nm of peak torque. MINI claims that the all-electric three-door Cooper SE can hit 100 kmph from naught in just 7.3 seconds.
BMW is backing the electric MINI to be a solid option for those looking at a zero-emission urban mobility product. “With the first-ever MINI Electric, MINI once again is the frontrunner in the urban mobility segment," said Vikram Pawah, President, BMW Group India. "With pre-booking, our customers and MINI fans have a chance to secure the purchase ahead of the launch and be the first in the country to drive the all-electric MINI."
Currently, the MINI model range in India includes the MINI 3-door Hatch, MINI John Cooper Works Hatch, MINI Convertible and the locally produced MINI Countryman.
