Classic MINI turned into an electric car

March 28, 2018 0 By autotimesnews

The company MINI presented a conceptual electrical modification of the classic Cooper hatchback. The public premiere of the novelty took place at the New York Auto Show, about a year before the debut of the first commercial electric car of the British brand.

The prototype is built on the basis of a late version of the MINI first generation. The prototype was equipped with an electric motor, the return of which is not specified. The engine is powered by a set of lithium-iron-phosphate batteries for 30 kilowatt-hours. The maximum speed of the car is 120 km / h, and without recharging the concept car can drive up to 105 kilometers.

The first serial electric car of the company MINI will appear in 2019. Externally and technically, the novelty will resemble the prototype Electric Concept, which was presented last fall at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

According to preliminary data, the serial MINI Cooper E can accelerate from place to 100 km / h in 7.5 seconds, and its power reserve will be 305 km per hour. At the moment, the model passes the final stage of road tests.
