Mini Cooper SE Charged Edition India at Rs 55 lakh

In the midst of India’s automotive evolution, Mini India has unveiled another jewel in its crown – the Mini Cooper SE Charged Edition. Priced at Rs 55 lakh, a slight bump of Rs 1.5 lakh over the standard model, this new launch is positioned to tantalize car aficionados across the subcontinent. And with only 20 units available, the exclusivity factor is off the charts.

A Dive into the Exquisite Exteriors

The Charged Edition stands out in its unique Chili Red color. This vibrant hue is perfectly complemented by a crisp white finish that graces the roof, wing mirrors, light surrounds, handles, and iconic Mini logos. But it doesn’t end there. The matte red stripes that seamlessly slide over the bonnet, tailgate, and doors, highlighted further with yellow streaks, add another level of charm. And for those with an eye for detail, the 17-inch alloy wheels with those signature yellow accents are a delightful carryover from the standard Mini Cooper SE.

Interiors that Spell Class

While the interiors remain consistent with the standard Cooper SE, it’s the familiarity that fans of the brand will appreciate. The all-black theme dotted with yellow accents is both refreshing and premium. Tech enthusiasts will admire the 8.8-inch touchscreen and the 5.5-inch digital instruments cluster. Mini also continues its tradition with the toggle switches and media controls, all strategically placed in the circular unit surrounding the touchscreen.

Power That Speaks for Itself

The Mini Cooper SE Charged Edition isn’t just about looks. At its heart is an electric motor that belts out an impressive 184hp and 270Nm of torque. This power stems from a 32.6kWh battery, ensuring that the car doesn’t just look swift but is swift. With a 0-100kph time of 7.3 seconds and a top speed of 150kph, this EV promises an exhilarating drive.

Additionally, Mini’s claim of a WLTP-certified range of up to 270km means that not only is the car fast, but it’s also reliable. Charging is a breeze too! A 50kW DC fast charger can juice it up from 0-80 percent in just 36 minutes. Even with the standard 11kW wall box charger, 0-80 percent charging is achieved in a mere 2 hours and 30 minutes.

Who’s in the Competition Ring?

Although the Cooper SE doesn’t have a direct competitor, in terms of pricing, it does square off with some notable names like the Hyundai Ioniq 5, the Volvo XC40 Recharge, and the Kia EV6.

Our Take

The Mini Cooper SE Charged Edition is more than just a car; it’s a statement. With its limited availability, stunning design, and unmatched performance, it’s set to be the crown jewel for the lucky few who get to own it. India’s electric car landscape just got a tad bit more exciting, thanks to Mini.
