On the outside, the Mini Cooper SE will look almost identical to its ICE sibling. It will get a blacked-out front main grille featuring a chrome border and a new ‘E’ badge instead of the new traditional ‘S’ lettering. In addition to that, it will also get newly designed alloy wheels as well as a different rear bumper. Also, the previously found dual exhaust tailpipes will be seen no more for obvious reasons.

The new Mini Cooper SE will be a front-wheel-drive that will feature an electric motor mounted on the front axle. This motor will be powered by a 32.6 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. The electric motor will be responsible for delivering a full power output of 181bhp and 270Nm of torque.
