2022 MINI Cooper SEWho here remembers the MINI E?

*raises hand*

Well, that little, small electric car, which went through a test run in 2009, was MINI’s first foray into EV manufacturing. Few got to see, let alone drove it, yet the E was thought by many to be MINI’s next “big” thing. 
10 Years Later
A decade’s passed since that trial period ended, and we’re just now harvesting the fruits of MINI’s labor: The all-new MINI Cooper SE. It’s the first production all-electric MINI Cooper car to hit the States, and does it ever deliver the goods. In fact, in just its first year out in the world, the MINI Cooper Electric was handed the coveted Urban Green Car of the Year award. Because it’s just an electric car, it can't brag; but we’re not cars, so we’ll do the bragging for it.

5 BIG Reasons to Go MINI Electric in Miami

1. 36 Minutes to Charge

2022 MINI Cooper SE Charging FactsThe 2022 MINI Cooper SE is propelled by an electric motor that makes 184 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque—plenty of zest to get your pulse racing on the interstate.

2022 MINI Cooper SE Safety FeaturesSmall in stature yet big on safety, the MINI Cooper SE electric vehicle always has your back thanks to the newly standard Lane Departure Warning. If you begin venturing outside the line, your steering wheel will vibrate, and a visual warning will pop up on the driver’s instrument panel.

Also standard with the MINI SE are features like Active Driving Assistant, Pedestrian and Front Collision Warning, and City Collision Mitigation, the latter of which automatically applies the brakes when a collision is detected at low speeds. Maybe it’s MINI Electric’s sense of self-preservation at work, or maybe MINI engineers just really want to keep you protected. Guess we’ll never know.

5. New Stuff, Same MINI Cooper Charm

2022 MINI Cooper SE in MiamiThat iconic go-kart driving experience is here, but the electric MINI Cooper SE is its own hatchback.

New wheels and front and back grilles adorn this EV, as do fancy standard LED headlights and UK-inspired Union Jack taillights. An optional Piano Black exterior covers everything, from the door handles to the fuel cap to the rear wings; it’s a sight to behold.

The highlight of the MINI Cooper SE is its one-of-a-kind Multitone Roof. You get a gradient color scheme of Soul Blue, Pearly Aqua and Jet Black, which makes the MINI appear as if it's soaring even whilst sitting in the school pick-up lane.

Oh, it’s also small enough to squeeze into tight Miami street parking spots. That’s pretty nifty, especially on the weekends when parking comes at a premium.
