Who would’ve thought Mini would be one of the first automakers to give us an electric convertible?
It’s pretty rare to see an all-electric convertible on the road, but your first sighting may soon be this Mini Cooper.
That’s right, Mini is planning on releasing a fully electric Mini Cooper SE with a convertible soft top. Whether you’re into Mini Coopers or not, you have to give credit to Mini for the precedent it’s setting.
Mini first debuted a prototype of its fully-electric Mini Cooper convertible last summer. Mini let outlets like Car and Driver test out the prototype, which the publication noted as being “production ready.”
Mini says its convertible EV will get around 124 miles. The specs are not very impressive, but you’re more likely buying this Mini Cooper for the fun factor, not the practicality.
