Mini Cooper is a fairly iconic car, but they are small so it's the perfect electric vehicle right? Alex borrowed the Mini Cooper SE for a week to find out.

Thanks to our friends at Openroad Mini Langley for lending us the car for a week! Check them out at lmg.gg/vbBQc

    Correction: At 2:03 it states a 2-4 is two sets of four beer. This would be woefully inadequate for a trip to the cabin. A 2-4 is actually 24 beers, so here a total of 48 beer were referenced. -AC

    Can’t wait for these to be on the used market. Bought a used BMW i3 with the REX. Maintenance free. Drives like a charm. The performance of the mini se will no doubt be fun. SE is better than the ICE Minis. The ICE Minis are maintenance nightmares.

    As a MINI owner for 10 years, this is honestly disappointing for me. I really wanted a Mini Cooper EV since they announced their short-lived CA only fleet vehicles but that range and price just makes me want a Model 3 or Chevy Bolt.

    Coming from a person who drives a 2016 Cooper 4D Hardtop and wants to get into the electric car scene, this is probably the most informative review I’ve watched thus far. I’m very grateful for this. It sounds like it feels like the Mini i drive (ableit smaller) but once they get the range of the vehicle lengthened, it’ll likely be a sound choice for a daily driver.

    I'd get this car if it had better range, say 200 miles per charge! Also in the U.S., it's $29,000 but because it's all electric you get a $7,500 tax credit, and that makes this car $22-23,000! So that's makes it a lot more attractive. For me, it's this car or the Ford Maverick Hybrid!!

    I feel that the vehicle reviews don't receive the same production attention that the first couple did. The first couple of them felt like the video the corporate media guys do for major networks but they seem to be sliding more towards normal LMG production. Its still good information but just doesn't have the same feel. Maybe the numbers on the others didn't reflect the effort put into them and production had to adjust accordingly.

    I do not get it when people say I love not having to goto the gas station ever again. But......you still need to goto a Charge Station anyways and not only that you have to wait like 30 minutes to have decent charge. Most charge stations do not have a convienent store so your just sitting in the car waiting......I still think gas stations are better and faster.

      Well no. The idea is that you just plug in at home or at the office. Your car charges while you sleep or work. Most people who buy these don't need to go to charging stations at all.

      I say this as someone who owns an EV and has no way of charging at home - Check out Zap Map, and look at just how many chargers on the map have a red outline to indicate that they are broken. Unfortunately many of them are broken and have been for months. It's a real pain and lots of broken chargers are frankly worse than no chargers at all. Knowing what I know now, I wouldn't have bought an EV unless I had a driveway that I could charge on reliably each night.

    $36.000 cad (€23.921) is nothing compared to the price of this thing in some European countries. Where I live it is $56.297 cad (€37.000). Compared to the price of a VW id.3 or the new Chupa Born this thing is really expensive for what you get. Even if the build quality of the mini is a lot better (Wich depends on how you look at it). The difference in what you get is so big that the average person with median income wouldn't drive this car and would instead opt for a gas-powered car or maybe an electric car with more range.

    The problem currently is that most electric cars use lithium based batteries. 2 of the items used to make those batteries Lithium and copper is expensive and only going up in cost. Until a cheaper alternative is reached like the graphene aluminium based battery research if successful then the price will keep increasing.

    I have to agree with the rear seats. In a car this small it makes much more sense to take out those seats and actually have a good amount of storage space in the back. From what I have heard of this car in other reviews its biggest problems are the fact that its range is poor by modern EV standards and its price puts it on par with the Honda E which is just overall nicer.

    I've have one of the 2020 models and just want to point out a few things. I get 230km in sports mode in city driving (60% suburban streets and 40% highway). If you go green, 250 is easy to accomplished, but as you said, a lot more boring. In Oz, the EV hating land, there are no subsidies, and the EV is only $900 more than the petrol equivalent. By that I mean the same equipment spec in a petrol Cooper S. It is still an expensive little car, but so is the petrol version :)
    It is a blast to drive and around town, it has to be one of the best cars for ducking in and out of traffic (of course I would never suggest you drive like that ;) )
