2020 Mini Cooper SE zaps its way onto the scene with battery-electric power

The battery has no effect on cargo space, which is nice, given the car's small footprint.

It sports a single electric motor on the front axle, granting it 181 horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque, all of which is routed through a single-stage transmission.

For its output, acceleration isn't too shabby, with 62 miles per hour arriving in 7.3 seconds.

The T-shaped battery under the floor has a capacity of 32.6 kWh.

That might not seem like much, but given the car's small footprint, that translates to a range between 146 and 168 miles by European standards.

The EPA has not yet released figures for the US, but suffice it to say, they're usually a bit lower than what the Europeans calculate.

The car also packs a two-stage regenerative braking system that lets drivers use a single pedal if they want.
