The entry-level Mini Cooper E will come with a single front axle-mounted electric motor that will churn out 181 hp of peak power. The automaker claims this electric motor will draw energy from a floor-mounted 40.7 kWh battery pack that could promise an estimated range of 300 km on a single charge.

The higher variant will be a performance-focused one. Christened as Mini Cooper SE, this EV will feature an electric motor mounted on the front axle, churning out 181 hp of peak power. This variant claims to draw juice from a bigger 54.2 kWh battery pack that would result in a maximum range of 400 km.

Interestingly, Mini's head previously said that the minimum range from the EV would be 386 km on a single charge. The carmaker has now clarified that only the Cooper SE will reach the 400 km threshold, while the entry-level variant will offer a lesser range on a single charge. However, this is still much better than the previous generation's 233 km range.

The new Mini Cooper will be underpinned by an all-new EV architecture called Spotlight, co-developed with BMW Group's Chinese joint venture partner Great Wall Motors.
