Mini has confirmed that it will be launching an all new electric convertible version of the Mini this decade, specifically in 2025. Currently the company only offers the Mini in electric form on one model, the three door hatchback so it is good that the drivetrain will make it to more models.
It is likely that the Mini E Convertible will share the same drivetrain and battery set up from the current Mini E hatch, which in turn shares its bits with the BMW i3S. The final Mini with a combustion engine will be launched in 2025, so the transition to pure EV will be timely.
The current Mini E has a 32.6kWh battery, with a range of 144 miles.
“The Mini Convertible has a large and particularly loyal fan base. This is also shown by the great demand for the latest, freshly updated model. We are therefore firmly convinced of the success of this vehicle concept for the future.”
