2022 Mini COOPER Electric: Many people have been waiting for the release of the new Mini Cooper electric range and finally, it’s here! What makes this car so special? What does it have to offer to those looking to buy it? Learn more about the new Mini Cooper Electric Range below!
With the announcement of the 2022 MINI COOPER Electric, MINI officially has its first all-electric vehicle on the market. However, with all-electric vehicles becoming more popular and plentiful in the marketplace, potential MINI customers may be wondering what exactly the new electric vehicle has to offer that isn’t found in competing EVs. Here are three things you can expect from the all-new 2022 MINI COOPER Electric!
Exterior Styling Of 2022 Mini COOPER Electric:
Keep in mind that electric cars are still fairly new to most of us, and not just because we don’t have one. Most of us have never seen an electric car up close. For example, did you know there is no grill on a MINI Cooper Electric? The smooth black slats running vertically down its front fascia give it a unique and futuristic look. The rest of its exterior styling follows suit with lots of little details you would only notice if you were looking closely, or driving next to one.
For example, almost all climate control, stereo and navigation controls are built into a single display screen on top of the dash, giving your eyes more room behind those blacked-out windows while also providing a much cleaner aesthetic.
The Mini Cooper has been around for several years, so you’d be forgiven for assuming it might be a little long in the tooth. On first glance, though, you’ll see there’s no hiding from its credentials: it looks like a Mini should and offers plenty of space inside. Plus, it still comes with that iconic Union Jack lining on every seat! Everything about it is just as you expect from a MINI – but far better.
The Mini cooper electric range review:
The car runs on battery power, so it’s important to understand what kind of mileage you can expect from a charge. Mini says its e-cooper has a max range of 140-145 miles range (WLTP). Of course, most people will never be able to get anywhere near that in day-to-day driving conditions. Even if you have access to superchargers (which add about 60 miles of range in 30 minutes), you’ll only ever need to top up your battery every now and then. That said, a fully charged Mini electric will get around 120 miles on average—enough for short trips like your commute and errands around town.
The interior of a 2022 MINI Cooper SE Electric is one of a kind. Front seat passengers will have their own climate controls with more vents for better circulation and ventilation. The technology on board has also been updated with mobile device chargers, making it easy to charge your devices on long trips. Being an electric vehicle, there are no gas pedals, just push-to-start and go!
Features & Technology Of 2022 Mini COOPER Electric:
The 2020s and 2022 saw numerous technological breakthroughs. One of these technologies was wireless charging, which is featured in all electric cars by law. This means that you can charge your 2022 MINI COOPER with a wireless charger in your kitchen, which is another convenient way for you to re-charge your vehicle throughout your day. Not only is a wireless charging system convenient but it also reduces carbon emissions as well.
If you are looking for an affordable but reliable and stylish car then look no further than our new electric vehicle line! Wireless charging isn’t all that comes standard with our electric vehicles; they also come with more safety features than ever before! Some of these extra safety features include rearview cameras, anti-lock brakes, and more powerful seatbelts.
MINI E and BMW i3 earn Top Safety Pick accolades from IIHS – The new MINI E was officially unveiled today as MINI’s first-ever electric vehicle. A quirky looking, funky car is nothing if it can’t handle an accident, right? Fortunately for MINI, not only is it a uniquely cool looking vehicle, but according to U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), it also got top marks in front-, side- and rear-impact crash tests; garnering a Top Safety Pick award.
The 2022 MINI COOPER Electric was designed with a focus on safety features. With ABS, brake assist, traction control, tire pressure monitoring and stability control there is no better way to keep you and your family safe than driving an electric vehicle. Safety doesn’t have to be boring; sporty design elements like aluminum wheels, LED headlights and a sport steering wheel are standard on all COOPER models.
The 2023 2022 MINI COOPER Electric SE 2 Door offers seating for four with a 30kWh battery pack and speed-specific regenerative braking. It has a top speed of 128MPH, which can be brought down to as low as 68MPH by using its 4 on-demand driving modes: Efficiency, Standard, Sport and Comfort. Its 218hp engine is capable of delivering power instantly at all speeds, making it a joy to drive in any situation. Its electric motor delivers smooth power even while at standstill or under heavy acceleration. Overall, we’d say that it’s extremely well-designed for an EV and would be an excellent choice for anyone looking into switching over from gas/diesel cars.
An electric motor is paired with a lithium-ion battery pack in the 2022 MINI Cooper SE Hardtop 2 Door, propelling it forward. Its powertrain is capable of a maximum output of 150 horsepower, which is sufficient for day-to-day driving and light acceleration. In terms of range, it should be able to hold between 75 and 100 miles per charge, perfect for those who live close enough to their job or other places they frequently visit.
The hardtop model will also include options such as solar panels on its roof that can further extend your mileage, though only available in select states with adequate sunlight. An automatic boost charger will come standard as well, allowing you to plug into any outlet when you aren’t driving and achieve a full charge within five hours instead of 20.

A major issue with Mini’s electric range is that there are a number of faults that have been causing big problems for users. For example, owners have complained about not being able to drive their cars at night, because their dashboard lights up like a Christmas tree. That leads us on to another major fault; one that has caused trouble for users who are also reliant on their car as part of their job (for example couriers).
In short, they’ve found themselves stranded when an issue with faulty gearbox software causes them to be unable to move out of first gear. The final complaint is mainly centred around customer service and poor build quality – customers have reported issues with rattles, fading interiors and poor craftsmanship.
