MINI continues to hype up the new electric Cooper with an extended photo gallery of the J01. Seen here is the more potent SE version in the Favoured Trim and a Blazing Blue paint job. The model highlighted here by the British brand has white contrasting accents and optional 18-inch “Night Flash” wheels with a two-tone look. MINI was never going to revolutionize the car’s exterior styling so the J01 continues the design language of its predecessor. However, major changes have occurred inside the cabin. This Cooper SE with its white upholstery and blue accents shows off the dashboard’s radical m ..read more

The Aceman might come from a British brand owned by a German company, but it’s made in China. That’s why MINI chose to introduce its small crossover at the Beijing Motor Show last month. The brand’s first EV-only model has touched down in Europe where it’s up on display at the BMW Welt in Munich. Unlike all the previous encounters showing the sub-Countryman model in Rebel Red, this one comes painted in Indigo Sunset Blue. It has MINI’s signature Multitone Roof with gradient tones, going from white to blue as you move toward the back of the vehicle. The swanky roof finish is available in the Fa ..read more

Having made its debut in early February, the new MINI Cooper (F66) has embarked on a world tour. Its latest stop is Italy where the 3-Door with gasoline engines has touched down for a photo shoot. It’s a desirable spec by combining the John Cooper Works Trim with a British Racing Green paint job. It also happens to have the optional 18-inch wheels with a two-tone finish. This new JCW flavor is merely an appearance package, applied here to a Cooper S. Think of it as MINI’s equivalent of an M Sport Package. The actual JCW hot hatch was previewed earlier this week ahead of its world premiere in t ..read more

MINI’s lineup renewal continues with a performance model we’ve been waiting for since the new 3-Door Hatch came out in February. The F66 with gasoline engines currently tops out with the Cooper S but a John Cooper Works arrives this fall. In the meantime, the JCW is being officially previewed in images of a camouflaged hot hatch. With the new generation of models, MINI has launched a JCW Trim that’s all show without any extra go. The disguised car seen here is the full-fat JCW, cloaked in retro-flavored camo. It mimics the livery used by the firm’s race cars from the 1960s. That “37” logo hark ..read more

We also gained some insight into future MINI products. MINImal Design The overarching theme of the J01 MINI Electric is minimalistic design. “You’re doing less, but it really lifts up the perceived value,” Heilmer says. A key focus was shortening the hood, which ..read more

The new MINI Cooper (F66) debuted about three months ago and is turning out to be an instant hit.

First Drive: 2024 MINI Cooper SE – The Quirky EV Is Finally Here

The 2024 MINI Cooper SE is the latest addition to the electric stable of the British marquee. But turning a MINI into an electric model that maintains the classic Cooper driving experience posed a significant challenge. MINI first tackled this task in 2019, but its first all-electric attempt was, let’s say, a bit of a mixed bag. It had the classic MINI charm and quick acceleration, but the range was a letdown. Now, five years later, they’re back with a second try, and I flew to Spain to find out if this electric hot hatch offers the thrilling go-kart-like performance and feeling that MINIs are ..read more

Judging by negative comments posted on the Internet about BMW’s controversial design choices, you’d think sales are declining. However, numbers tell a different story. The German luxury brand had record-breaking sales last year, and 2024 is off to an even better start. Through March 31, shipments to customers rose by 2.5%. In the first three months of the year, BMW delivered 530,933 cars to customers worldwide. It sold 12,976 more vehicles than in January-March 2023.

BMW Motorrad had a record-breaking 2023 when sales of motorcycles and scooters jumped to 209,257 units during the brand’s centenary year. Demand was up by 3.1% for the BMW Group’s two-wheeled division. What if the company’s success were to rub off onto another member of the automotive conglomerate? As it turns out, MINI isn’t against the idea of swapping four wheels for just two for a future product. It would be based on an existing product offered by the increasingly successful Motorrad branch. Company chief Stefanie Wurst chatted with Auto Express about the prospects of a motorbike.
