BMW:Versatile, stylish and sustainable on tour: the MINI Electric with MINI Genuine Accessories.

Munich. The temperatures are rising and with them the
anticipation of outdoor activities and excursions into nature. The
model-specific railing and roof rack systems from the MINI Genuine
Accessories range create ideal conditions for leaving the limits of
urban mobility behind and combining driving pleasure with active
leisure activities. The MINI Cooper SE (combined power consumption:
17.6 – 15.2 kWh/100 km according to WLTP, 16.9 – 14.9 kWh/100 km
according to NEDC) is a particularly sustainable escape from everyday
life. As the only purely electrically driven model in its competitive
environment, it can also be optionally equipped with roof rails. This
means that nothing stands in the way of locally emission-free
transport of roof boxes, bicycles or other sports and leisure utensils.

With a range of 203 to 234 kilometres determined in the WLTP test
cycle, the MINI Cooper SE is ideally equipped to explore new routes
away from the urban jungle. And when it comes to versatility and
transport capacities, the first purely electrically powered model from
the British premium brand is in no way inferior to the conventionally
powered variants of the MINI 3-door. With all four seats utilised, its
luggage compartment volume is also 211 litres. And after folding down
the rear seat backrest, which can be divided in a 60 : 40 ratio, the
storage space increases to 731 litres, just like in a MINI 3-door with
an internal combustion engine. And that’s not all: the railing and
roof rack systems from the MINI Genuine Accessories range turn the
electrified model into a versatile transport talent in no time at all.

The conditions for this are created by the roof rails in matt black,
which are available directly from production site. On the roof of the
MINI Cooper SE, it forms the stable basis for various fastening and
transport systems, which are available in the MINI Genuine Accessories
range for both the MINI Cooper SE and the conventionally powered MINI
3-door and MINI 5-door models. For example, the railing rack available
there as a retrofit product enables the MINI roof box to be locked in
place comfortably and securely. With a tare weight of 13 kilograms, it
offers a capacity of 320 litres. This provides sufficient space for
sports clothing, bicycle helmets or even camping and picnic equipment.
Even skis can be stored in the roof box, which is around 1.90 metres
long. The all-black box has embossed stripes and MINI lettering. It is
lockable and can be opened on both sides.

Because the brand’s typical principle of creative use of space also
applies to the roof of the MINI Cooper SE, there is even room for a
bicycle next to the roof box. With the touring bike holder, which is
also available in the MINI Genuine Accessories range, two-wheelers of
different types and sizes can be mounted upright and securely on the
railing carrier. The holder made of high-strength aluminum fixes the
bike with a lockable clamping system and two tension straps. In
addition, the range includes other transport solutions such as ski
racks and an aluminum luggage basket, which are also compatible with
the railing carrier.

The MINI Cooper SE becomes the ideal companion for a short trip or
weekend excursion with the model-specific Travel & Comfort System.
It consists of a basic carrier that can be firmly mounted between the
headrest rails of the driver’s or front passenger’s seat. Various
system attachments can be quickly and conveniently slipped on and
snapped into place. For example, holders for tablets or hangers and
universal hooks for bags can be securely attached to the backrests of
the front seats.

In addition, a folding table that can be used as a work or storage
surface can be attached to the basic support of the Travel &
Comfort System. It can be adjusted in height and inclination as needed
and is held securely on the backrest of the seat. Another clever
detail of the folding table is the foldable cup holder. An ideal
solution in the fight against impatience and boredom in the rear of
the MINI Cooper SE is the universal holder for tablets with a screen
diameter of between seven and eleven inches. It ensures that the
tablet is securely fastened in an ergonomically optimal position,
making it easy to start an individual entertainment programme for the
passengers in the rear seats on longer trips beyond the city limits.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption were
measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC)
2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the automotive market
in Germany. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account
differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP
figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures are already calculated on the basis of the new WLTP
test cycle. NEDC values listed have been calculated back to the NEDC
measurement procedure where applicable. WLTP values are used as a
basis for the definition of taxes and other vehicle-related levies
that are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for
the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies. Further information on
the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures is also available at can be found.
