According to engineering sources at MINI, the all-electric performance-based MINI may be here sooner than we think! While focusing on both increasing range and accessibility, BMW-owned MINI appears to be developing its newest electric venture with performance at the forefront of design. Thus, the MINI Cooper S E may not have the longest range, but it will most certainly be fun to drive. This new electric MINI will be called the MINI Cooper S E and is based upon the classic three-door hatchback body style. Though MINI has yet to confirm official specifications for the upcoming electric vehicle, it is rumored that the BMW i3's electric motor is likely to power this all-new MINI. With this motor under the hood, the MINI Cooper S E is expected to have a range of around 200 miles--as quoted by insiders at MINI. Originally premiered in 2017 as a concept, the all-new MINI Cooper S E is rumored to be more similar in design to the current MINI Cooper S with additional "E" trim elements included.

As of now, it looks like the MINI Cooper S E is set to launch in August of this year, directly coinciding with MINI's 60th-anniversary celebration! According to insiders at MINI, they believe this anniversary is the perfect time to launch what could very well be the future of MINI vehicles. Currently, it looks like the 2020 MINI Cooper S E will start around $38,000, but this is mostly speculation at this point. We're more than eager to see what MINI's first all-electric car will look like, what the performance specifications will look like, and all of the exciting technology that could be coming to this brand new model. We hope August gets here soon!
