Six decades after the original Mini first rolled off the production line in Oxford, its owner BMW has unveiled a new electric version it hopes will herald a new era - and help the German carmaker meet looming European Union emissions targets.

We've known for a while that Mini's first real electric vehicle, the Cooper SE, has been on its way, after first being previewed by a concept in 2017 and then when we drove it in prototype form earlier this year. We're pretty sure that the 500 USA owners of the Mini E from 2008 would disagree, but there's no questioning the fact that this new Cooper SE is a better vehicle and one that was designed from the get-go to incorporate batteries and an electric motor.

The SE will have multiple regenerative-braking modes, with one offering one-pedal driving.

"The Mini Electric will kick off our new model offensive for fully electric vehicles". With 270 Newton-meters (199 pound-feet) on tap, the Mini Cooper SE goes from 0 to 60 kph (37 mph) in 3.9 seconds and needs 7.3 seconds to complete the 0-100 kph (0-62 mph) task. According to Automotive News, the electric hatch is estimated to have an EPA-certified range of 114 miles (183 km). From a fast-charging station that allows 50 kW charging, you'll only need 35 minutes for an 80% charge. You'll be able to lease the Mini Electric from £299 a month. Those bright yellow body accents on the front grille and side mirror caps denote this isn't an ordinary Mini, much like the funky alloy wheels essentially carried over from the showcar. Most notably, the grille is nearly completely closed off by a grey panel, decorated by a signature yellow bar, while the side mirrors can also painted yellow (the standard colour is grey) and the auto is available with unique 17-inch, four-spoke alloy wheels sporting an asymmetrical design, with one really long spoke. A 6.5-inch screen (a larger 8.8-inch unit is optional) inside displays powertrain information and offers suggestions to improve efficiency, and the standard navigation system features a range circle so drivers know how far they can travel at the current state of charge. When the vehicle is charging, the cluster shows available range, the percent of charge, outside temperature, the time the auto will be done charging, and other relevant info.

Every Cooper SE will have a dual-zone automatic climate-control system and a special heat-pump design that uses 75 percent less energy than a traditional electric heater. It's on sale now with deliveries beginning in March 2020. After coming away impressed by our stint in a prototype, we're excited to get our hands on the new electric Mini.
