THE ALL-ELECTRIC MINI.
HOW ALL-ELECTRIC FITS YOUR DRIVE STYLE.
80% SOC (11 kW, AC)
Built for fast charging with CCS
Standard cable included
START EVERY DAY FULLY CHARGED.
A NEW RHYTHM OF LIFE.
PLUG IN AT HOME.
You don’t actually need any complex installation or unit to charge at home. All you have to do is plug in to any conventional household 230-volt power socket (SchuKo) – and relax.
Our surveys show us that the average commuter uses less than 20% of the MINI Cooper SE battery per day. Even if you use your normal domestic electric socket, this 20% is charged in approximately 3 hours. The standard charging cable and adapter is, of course, included with your new all-electric MINI.
With an optional Mode 3 cable, you can charge anywhere you park.
YOU CAN DO IT IN YOUR SLEEP.
You can finally have it all. Wake up, fully rested in the morning to a 'full tank', and start the day, full of energy.
Just like a mobile phone, you can plug your all-electric MINI into your domestic household socket overnight and it will have recharged completely (approx. 15 hours).
Should you happen to park in a basement car park, you could ask your landlord if it would be possible to install a simple SchuKo socket for your parking space.
GOOD TO KNOW.
WALL OF POWER.
While you can always use your standard charging cable at home or on a holiday trip, the premium quality MINI Wallbox offers you a convenient, faster alternative for daily charging at home.
Figures can vary, of course, but a dedicated, 3-phase 11 kW wallbox connection will generally give you up to 3-times faster charging time. So your all-electric MINI can be fully charged within around 3.5 hours.
To install a wallbox, you will need the expert assistance of an approved electrician. If you are interested in installing a MINI Wallbox, we would be happy to help you locate such a specialist in your area.
PARK IT. CHARGE IT.
CHARGING AWAY FROM HOME.
Make double use of your parking time.
With your all-electric MINI, you can make good use of this time by taking advantage of the ever-growing number of charging stations at public parking spaces.
More and more supermarkets, shopping centres and furniture stores are offering free use of their AC, and DC**, charging stations or triple chargers at their parking facilities. A growing number of hotels are also keen to be seen as more environmentally aware and making more effort to accommodate guests with electric vehicles. And some multi-story car parks are also offering electric parking spaces at no extra cost.
Flexible and clean.
You can charge your all-electric MINI with an optional Mode 3 cable at public 11 kW charging stations.
Several public charging stations are equipped with both alternating current (AC) via a Type 2 connector and direct current (DC**) via CCS plug that gives you up to 50kW electric power.
Did you know that the public charging infrastructure in Germany is supplied with 100% green or renewable power?
POWER = WORK/TIME.
If you have a parking space at work, your employer might consider setting up charging facilities for you and your colleagues. The same conditions apply as with charging at home. If you park for a longer period, a high-voltage connection isn’t required. A standard SchuKo socket is all you need – so you can start your journey home with a fully-charged battery.
The high charge power provided by the Combined Charging System (CCS) comes into play for charging on longer distances.
WHEREVER YOU GO.
THERE’S ELECTRICITY EVERYWHERE.
COMPATIBILITY = TOTAL FLEXIBILITY.
Thanks to the Type 2 and CCS compatible connectors, you have total flexibility and can take advantage of every charging station.
The combination of practically-sized charging capacity and stable charging performance of your MINI ensures you can take many ways to reach your destination – and always have several charging options within reach.
EVERY JOURNEY A DISCOVERY.
SAVE IN SO MANY WAYS.
HELPING SAVE THE EARTH COULD SAVE YOU MONEY.
LOW WEAR AND TEAR.
BRAKE ENERGY REGENERATION.
Your all-electric MINI converts braking energy into electricity by using its motor as a generator, and puts some power back into your battery every time you decelerate.
This so-called regenerative braking also conserves the disc brakes and prevents the creation of fine dust particles caused by the wear abrasion of the brake discs.
GOOD FOR YOUR ACCOUNT. GREAT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT.
In the sample calculations, you can see how much CO2, fuel and service costs you can save with an annual mileage of 15,000 km when compared to a petrol engine.

THE TIPPING POINT.
The first Mini ever built in 1959, was already fuel-efficient. Today, the same general principles are applied to our electric mobility range. With battery-powered driving technology, the all-electric MINI Cooper SE and MINI Countryman Plug-in Hybrid are leading the charge towards a more sustainable future. If the MINI Cooper SE is charged using EU electricity mix, it breaks even with, or becomes greener than, a petrol-driven MINI Cooper S after appoximately 30,000 km.
If charged using a renewable energy mix, the MINI Cooper SE becomes cleaner or greener than a comparable petrol-driven car at approximately 19,000 km. Over its complete life cycle, the MINI Cooper SE displays a 40% (EU mix) and 70% (renewable mix) lower global warming potential respectively.*
And we don’t stop there. All BMW Group plants in Europe have been supplied with 100% green electricity since 2017. We are also constantly expanding carbon-efficient transport modes and more than half of our vehicles are leaving the plants by train. In December 2019, BMW Group joined the “Getting to Zero Coalition” with the objective of achieving a decarbonisation of international maritime shipping.

ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL STANDARDS IN THE SUPPLIER NETWORK.
WHAT ARE THE KEY RAW MATERIALS USED FOR THE MINI COOPER SE’S HIGH-VOLTAGE STORAGE AND WHAT DO YOU DO TO ENSURE THAT THEY ARE SOURCED RESPONSIBLY?
The key raw materials of the high-voltage storage are cobalt, lithium, graphite and nickel. The shell of the high-voltage battery is made of aluminum. MINI (BMW Group) is committed to developing a supply chain that is responsible, sustainable and one that meets our own high ethical and human rights standards. Each nominated supplier must provide information on the implementation of environmental, social and governance standards including respect for human rights and the prohibition of forced labour.
We work closely with key raw material suppliers to ensure that all materials are responsibly sourced both to protect and enhance the environment, and to ensure the safety and well-being of the employees at any point along the supply chain. We also continue to streamline logistics operations to reduce impacts from transporting components to our plants.
DO YOU KNOW THE SOURCES OF THESE RAW MATERIALS AND HOW DO YOU ENSURE YOUR SUPPLIERS MEET THE SUSTAINABILITY REQUIREMENTS?
HOW DO YOU ENSURE THAT COBALT IS RESPONSIBLY SOURCED?
Together with BASF, Samsung SDI and Samsung Electronics, we are committed to sustainable cobalt mining. In a joint project in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, we want to understand how the living and working conditions of local people can be improved. In order to prevent or mitigate adverse impacts and not to let the people of the Congo down, we have also commissioned the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) GmbH to improve working conditions in artisanal cobalt mining in a pilot project in the DR Congo. We are aware of our responsibility that the raw materials are mined and processed under normal conditions. We are regularly on-site, know the mines and the working methods of our partners and ensure a clean recovery.
In addition to this, to generally limit the need for critical raw materials such as cobalt, the BMW Group pursues the goal of increasing the proportion of recycled cobalt in battery cells.
WHAT STEPS DO YOU TAKE TO ENSURE THE PROCUREMENT PROCESS FOR ALUMINIUM IS FAIR AND SUSTAINABLE?
In the aluminum procurement process, we not only buy for our own needs, but also make this material available to our suppliers, reliably and at calculable prices. This creates greater planning security on both sides. In order to be able to meet our long-term demands for sustainably produced aluminum in the future, the BMW Group became the first automobile manufacturer to join the Aluminum Stewardship Initiative – actively demanding ecological and social sustainability for certified aluminum across the entire aluminum value chain – from the mine to the recycling process.
We also strive to source more recycled aluminium in our manufacturing processes. The use of secondary materials has a positive effect, especially on the following aspects of sustainability: biodiversity, CO2 emissions (especially in raw materials with energy-intensive production such as aluminum, steel and copper) and the reduction of waste. The average share of secondary aluminum in our vehicles is 20%. For aluminum casting alloys, it is 40%. We work with the Aluminum Stewardship Initiative on the certification of our aluminum partners in accordance with the outlined sustainability standard.
