At the beginning of the last century, BMW relaunched the Mini brand, which received a lot of praise and customer attention. The Cooper and Cooper S models were much smaller than other cars on sale at the time. They exuded an interesting minimalism that added personality while keeping the car light.In the announcement released on Wednesday, the Mini brand showcased the next-generation Cooper Hardtop.
Although BMW did not disclose the specifications of this new model, from the photos displayed, this is a small three-door electric Cooper, similar to the current Mini Cooper SE, and this car seems to evoke people’s most initial thoughts. The mission of the new Mini.
Technology media CNET speculates that the car’s endurance is lower than the SE’s EPA number. This is partly due to the maturity of technology and other reasons, but also because the mini company is vigorously developing electrification, and its goal is to become an all-electric brand in the early 2030s.
CNET hopes that Mini will work hard to reduce the weight of the car compared to the current generation. More weight means smaller range and performance, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see the company make cars smaller again and use more sustainable materials.
