MINI at the Los Angeles Auto Show 2019.

Munich. Driving fun typical of the brand in the best
heritage tradition, the latest design and maximum diversity
characterises MINI at the Los Angeles Auto Show 2019. The British
premium automobile manufacturer is using the international auto show
held in the US State of California to join together with visitors and
celebrate the brand’s 60th anniversary. It is the perfect occasion to
present the exceptional breadth of its current model range – from
local emission-free mobility in the city to thrilling performance on
the race track. The new all-electric MINI Cooper SE (combined fuel
consumption: 0.0 l/100 km; combined electricity consumption:
16.8 – 14.8 kWh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 0 g/km) is
making its American auto-show debut in Los Angeles. At the same time,
the visiting public can get to know the latest elite athletes from the
John Cooper Works between 22 November and 1 December 2019.

Smart use of space and agile driving characteristics already enabled
the classic Mini to gain a loyal community of fans in the USA. Since
the relaunch of the brand, the modern version of the MINI feeling has
steadily gained in popularity. The American MINI dealer network now
comprises 122 dealerships in 39 states. They offer customers the
complete model range of the brand. The MINI Hardtop 2 door, the
MINI Hardtop 4 door and the MINI Convertible offer characteristic
driving fun and individual style in the premium segment for small
cars. The brand has also become firmly established in the premium
compact segment with the MINI Clubman and the MINI Countryman.

Emotions instead of emissions: The new MINI Cooper SE.

The latest addition to the model range offers an opportunity to gain
a completely novel experience of driving fun so typical of MINI. The
new MINI Cooper SE is the first premium small car with all-electric
drive to deliver a sustainable and emotionally intense driving
experience. The car’s powerful 135 kW/181 hp electric motor thrills
with its spontaneous and responsive behaviour, permitting acceleration
from zero to 60 mph in 6.9 seconds. The high-voltage battery of the
new MINI Cooper SE is positioned low in the floor of the vehicle. The
vehicle’s resulting low centre of gravity and the chassis engineering
tuned to the specific model assist the new MINI Cooper SE in achieving
impressive agility and dynamic cornering performance.

The new MINI Cooper SE is based on the MINI Hardtop 2 door with an
internal combustion engine. Its highly expressive design is
complemented by independent accents – including the closed radiator
grille, yellow MINI Electric logos and model-specific lightweight
alloy wheels that point to the locally emission-free drive unit. The
car is produced together with the conventionally powered model at the
British MINI Plant Oxford and it will be available in the USA from
March 2020.

Elite athletes at the top of their game: The
MINI John Cooper Works Clubman
and the MINI John Cooper Works Countryman.

The John Cooper Works models in the premium compact segment are being
presented to the public at the top of their game in the Los Angeles
Auto Show 2019. The MINI John Cooper Works Clubman (combined fuel
consumption: 7.4 – 7.1 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions:
169 – 161 g/km) and the MINI John Cooper Works Countryman (combined
fuel consumption: 7.3 – 6.9 l/100 km; combined CO2
emissions: 166 – 156 g/km) are now powered by a new four-cylinder
turbo engine with maximum power of 225 kW/301 hp. The increase in
power of 55 kW/73 hp by comparison with the predecessor models
generates outstanding performance characteristics on the race track.

The new engine is combined as standard with a new 8-speed Steptronic
sports transmission, including mechanical differential lock on the
front axle, an ALL4 all-wheel drive system, a specifically engineered
chassis and additional reinforcement modifications for the body
structure, engine connection and chassis fastenings. The new MINI John
Cooper Works Clubman only takes 4.6 seconds for acceleration in the
sprint from zero to 60 mph. The new MINI John Cooper Works Countryman
completes the sprint in 4.9 seconds.

The values of fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and electricity
consumption shown were determined according to the test procedure
defined in the European Directive VO (EU) 2007/715 in the version
applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a
vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown
takes account of optional equipment and the different size of wheels
and tyres available on the selected model. These factors can change
during the configuration.

The values of some vehicles are measured according to the new
WLTP (Worldwide Harmonised Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure) and
converted to NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) for comparison
purposes. The taxes or other duties for these vehicles may be based
on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions data which differ from that
shown here.

Further information on official fuel consumption and official
specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars is given in the
‘Handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emissions and power
consumption of new passenger cars’, which can be obtained free of
charge at all sales outlets and from Deutsche Automobil Treuhand
GmbH (DAT), Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen,
