Mini unveils a Cooper Electric Cabriolet

There is really not much missing for production to be launched, which may be discovered in the coming months. Be that as it may, it would be one of the only electric cabriolets on the market, since apart from the oddities like the Citroën e-Méhari/Bolloré Blue Summer, rarities like the Smart Eq Fortwo Cabrio or Arlesians like the Tesla Roadster, There are hardly only preparers or companies specializing in Restomod/Retrofit to offer them.

Mini Cabrio 100 % electric: unique, but limited to 155 copies and displayed at an exorbitant price

You might dream of it ? Mini did it. A few months later presented an announcing prototype, Mini decided to move on to serious things and produce (small) series the very first 4 -seater electric convertible in the world. A unique object of its kind that the British brand charges at a high price, and it is not to say it !

For leaps in hair fleece in the wind without the slightest noise

Let’s start with the presentations. The mini novelty will not surprise anyone. Take a non -convertible 100 % electric Cooper model, replace the hard roof with a flexible model that can be folded up to a speed of 30 km/h, and PAF, it gives shock. The mini cooper is cabrio 100 % electric, Ta-Dam ! Same dimensions (3.86 m long and 1.73 m wide), same trunk volume (always as modest with 160 L), same electric motor of 184 hp (6 hp more than the thermal cooper), even Battery with the modest capacity of 32.6 kWh confident to the city (autonomy of 201 km on the WLTP cycle), it differs from the coupe only by some details of presentation.
Already, Mini has decided to produce this model in only 999 copies around the world (including 155 just for France which loves the electric mini). Also we find plates here and it on which is written the number of the model. There are also a few bronze touches (on door handles, side gowns, steering wheel, etc.), nothing too much. Overall, the result is rather sober, without excess, it looks almost a mini like the others. In the passenger compartment, the atmosphere is even very dark, no bit of madness, like the decorative inserts piano black seen and reviewed. Finally, only two colors are offered: black and white. The Union Jack motif of the hood somewhat brings the whole. And fortunately, the endowment is quite rich: sports seats, heated, steering wheel in nappa, quality leather or up-to-face display.

Sale price: € 60,490

It is a comment. 60,490 € for such a small machine, as unique as it is, it is frankly exaggerated. It is more than € 20,000 more than the electric mini cut in its highest -end version ! In 2012, a mini Inspired by Goodwood was already costing € 50,000 but it had a much more licked presentation (walnut ronce, real leather, lamb fur for carpets) making it a real little rollls Miniature Royce. However, question exclusivity for this mini cooper is cabrio 100 % electric, this is the minimum service.
