'Mini is launching a new full-electric Cooper SE coupe for 2020 that combines the brand’s famed go-kart-like handling with zero-emissions operation. It promises lively acceleration with its electric motor producing 181 horsepower with 199 pound-feet of torque. Expect a 0-60 mph time at 7.3 seconds. The Cooper SE features four driving modes and two regenerative braking selections, with the ability to engage one-pedal driving. Its official U.S.-spec operating range has not yet been established, but it’s rated to run for 146-167 miles on the European test cycle; its stated range will likely be less when the EPA evaluates it here.'
