As the name suggests, the new MINI electric car will be based on the three-door Cooper. It’s performance is expected to be on par with the Cooper S, which is why MINI has reportedly picked the Cooper S E name. According to Autocar, the MINI Cooper S E will be powered by the same 181-hp electric motor that powers the BMW i3 S, which is nearly the same output as the Cooper S.
