Fifth-Generation All-Electric MINI 3-Door Testing In Sweden

23rd Mar 2022

The new fifth-generation MINI 3-door is currently undergoing cold weather testing at BMW Group’s winter test centre in Arleplog, Sweden. The latest iteration of the iconic compact city car is fully electric and represents the first of the new generation, to be followed by a successor to the MINI Countryman.

The new MINI 3-door will be built in China and the ICE-powered five-door version will be manufactured in the UK.

Head of the MINI brand, Stefanie Wurst is excited for the future of MINI.

“MINI is on a path of growth and heading towards a fully electric future,” said Wurst. “Our iconic MINI 3-door maximises the experience for our customers through its electrified go-kart feeling combined with digitalised touchpoints – and a clear focus on sustainability with a minimum environmental footprint.”

The electric MINI 3-door is expected to go on sale in the second half of 2023 with an entry-level model being supplied with a 40kWh battery and a price-tag similar to the current MINI Electric. Range is expected to be just under 190 miles. A more powerful and longer-range variant, the MINI Electric Cooper SE, will be fitted with a 50kWh battery and have a range of around 250 miles.

Right where do I start! 5* is underestimate! Literally EV Hire puts every single car hiring companies to Shame! I rented a vehicle from EV Hire during bank holiday weekend. I was very last minute to the point where I put in the request at 9.45pm on a Friday night for next day 12pm delivery.

These guys are in a league of their own! I just had a first rental experience with EV Hire and it was as smooth as one can imagine. Daryl and his team would deliver and collect the car from you for fee, they are quick to respond, punctual to arrive and have a great fleet of electric cars and high end 4x4s available. Last but no least, approval process for non-UK driving licenses is very smooth and…
