A First Look At The New Electric Mini Cooper
Moving towards a cleaner future, many car companies are amid a renewal, sustainable energy revolution, and Mini Cooper is amongst them. Earlier this year, Mini Cooper launched its first-ever electric car, the MINI Electric, a three-door hatchback. Here's what you should know about this pilot model.
The new electric car has included the new Mini Electric's battery in the car price. Not only does it run by electricity, it's also more cost-efficient with its energy, running at 4p per mile which is around 2.5 to six times cheaper than driving petrol or diesel, estimated to be about 9.6p and 21p per mile, respectively. Other perks of the new electric Mini includes premium standard features, including Apple CarPlay™, Active Driving Assistant and heated front seats—for cold climate commuting.
To control the temperature inside the car, of course, battery capacity is reduced for increased energy consumption. So if you need neither AC nor heating, the car can be switched to the Green+ Mode to extend your range, accelerate more smoothly and anticipate the road ahead.
With the belief that electricity will be the main source of energy for cars in the not-so-faraway future, the Mini Electric is one most complete BEVs to be produced so far.
