The MINI Electric Concept in Video

The MINI Electric concept was previewed last week in heavily rendered imagery that, while promising left a little realism behind. Today we get that back with the first video of the new concept.

For a full view of the concept and what it could mean for the future MINI E electric car (due in late 2019) read more of our coverage in MotoringFile’s F56 MINI E section.

    I might be one of the few but I love it, I think it’s a great part of the evolution of mini I can’t wait to be able to trade mine in.

    I just saw the beautifully simple design of Honda’s Urban EV over on Autoblog and I think it makes the MINI look like it’s really trying way too hard.

      I want a retro looking EV MINI like that!

  • Mr Remi

    I think it needs more letter E’s on it so that we know it’s an electric vehicle .

    That said, am hopeful that EV tech will help the brand. Based on this video I think it will.

    Very tempting. If they made a JCW version of the MINI that was electric, I’d be very tempted to trade up.

      Using the B28 turbocharged two-cylinder modular engine driving the front wheels, and an electric motor driving the rear wheels, effectively providing two-wheel/four-wheel drive on demand.
