MINI revealed the exterior design of its 2025 Cooper Electric model last month. Now we get a look at the interior. The dashboard is mostly covered but we can still see the new steering wheel, and the cabin has been ‘cluster free’. MINI has moved the vehicle information from the traditional digital instrument cluster to the top of its new infotainment.
It’s as if someone just threw a timer on the dashboard and said it was done. It’s not discreet but it does appear to be divided into three sections. The top third features a speedometer and a range gauge, as well as other important information. The display’s center is dedicated to infotainment while the lower third contains climate controls, shortcuts for the phone, navigation, and home screens.
2025 MINI Cooper EV Redesign
Flavor Flav would approve of the 2025 MINI Cooper Electric with its clock-like infotainment system. The inclusion of climate controls in the infotainment has led to the removal of several physical controls. We can still see the minimalist shifter, as well as the “Power” and “Experiences”, knobs.
MINI revealed a few details yesterday, stating that the “visually-reduced interior” has a 9.4-inch (240 mm diameter) OLED display in the center. The company has also confirmed that there will be two steering wheels and Vibrant silver accents. New seats with integrated armrests are also on the way.
The company has also confirmed that the Cooper E has a 40.7-kWh battery with an output of 135 kW/184 PS. Cooper SE has a larger battery of 54.2 kWh and an electric motor that produces 215 hp. The models should be able to travel between 300 and 400 km (186- 249 miles) on a single battery charge.
The 2025 Mini Cooper Hardtop exudes sophistication. The car has a wide, low stance, which gives it an athletic look, while the rounded edges, and Mini’s signature design elements, ensure it retains a classic appeal. The grille dominates the front of the vehicle, flanked by narrow and sleek headlights. The chrome trim around the grille gives it a premium look, and the LED headlights provide superior visibility.
The 2025 Mini Cooper Hardtop has a large rear end, which is enhanced by a spoiler. This not only gives the car a sporty appearance but also enhances its aerodynamics. Mini’s Cooper EV marks the company’s entry into the electric car market. The futuristic design is sure to attract the attention of anyone looking for a stylish and eco-friendly vehicle.
The grille is unique and filled with 3D-printed geometric patterns. The grille is integrated with the headlights, which feature LED technology. This not only enhances visibility but also gives the car a futuristic appearance. The new Mini Cooper EV has a sleek, aerodynamic side profile with a roofline sloping down to the rear of the vehicle. The car’s rear features a wide stance, giving it a sporty appearance. Its taillights, which are integrated into its rear bumper, add to the futuristic design.
Charger Range, Battery Life, and Capacity
According to our estimations, Cooper ES comes with a battery pack of 36.6 kWh, while S ES has a 53.0 kWh, which is good for 200 miles on a single charge. We’ll be testing the Mini Electric at 75 mph on our highway fuel economy route when we have a chance.
Connectivity and Infotainment
The dashboard is dominated by a large circular infotainment screen. Our prototype test car also had a head-up display that popped up. Mini has not revealed many of Cooper Electric’s options and features. We will update this article when we have more information.
