Mini has launched the limited production model of the Cooper SE EV in India. The new Charged Edition has a Multitone white top and a Chilli Red exterior and costs Rs 55 lakh (ex-showroom, India), which is Rs 1.5 lakh more than the standard version. Further, only 20 units of this special edition, sent via CBU, will be available in our market. The Mini Cooper SE Charged Edition shares the same mechanical components as the base SE and thus employs the identical 32.6kWh battery pack, which gives it a stated 270 kilometre of electric range on a single charge.
Using a 50kW DC fast charger, the battery of the model can be charged from 0% to 80% in 36 minutes. Additionally, it can go from 0% to 80% with an 11kW wall box charger (included as standard), as opposed to 9 hours and 43 minutes with a 2.3kW charger. Let's know more about this limited Edition model that rivals the likes of the Volvo XC40 Recharge, the Hyundai Ioniq 5, and more models in India.
