Mini Cooper EV 2025: official images reveal revised design, larger battery to give better range


The next-generation electric Mini Cooper is expected to have a much better range and fit a larger 54kWh battery pack

Mini has released official images of its next electric Cooper hatchback, which still essentially looks like a Mini but has been further modernised. 

Gone are the iconic Union Jack motif tail lights, having been replaced by new triangular design units. 

A refreshed alloy wheel design, along with a revised angular front grille, feature for the first time.

For those still wanting a combustion-engined sports Mini, turbocharged petrol iterations of the new Mini Cooper S are likely to exist alongside the electric variant for some time into the future. 

The new Mini Cooper EV hatchback is expected to go on sale in 2025 as Mini transitions to a fully-electric brand. 

The Mini Cooper EV competes in the small-electric segment with rivals such as the Hyundai Kona Electric, Nissan Leaf and the upcoming Fiat 500e

What will power the new Cooper EV?

Mini will scrap the existing 28.9kWh usable battery pack found in the current Mini electric hatch, instead fitting future versions with either a 40kWh or 54kWh battery pack.

With the larger battery, range is expected to be around 380-400km, significantly more than the 203km (WLTP) range of the current car. 

A previous Chasing Cars article reported that the next Mini Cooper EV will also gain a power boost, lifting output to 160kW instead of the 135kW (and 270Nm) figure of the Mini electric currently on sale.
