The 2025 Mini Cooper EV reveal is sporting a facelift, increased range, as well as a giant, round OLED screen that reportedly floats in front of the dashboard. The firm says that the Cooper E and Cooper SE which are the two EV variants reportedly have 190 miles as well as 250 miles of range, respectively, as calculated by making use of the European EV test cycle. (Those very numbers in question could drop to around 175 miles and 215 miles each when the EPA test cycle is appropriately applied, per Ars Technica.)

But about that big OLED touchscreen in question that now floats in front of the center of the dashboard instead of the traditional embedded rectangle in past models. The firm recently teased the redesigned interior of the Cooper in the early parts of this year with videos revealing the animations of the screen and then followed that up with yet another release with more detail regarding its capabilities.

The screen in question is also utilized to show Spike, which is a CG dog that represents the “fully-fledged voice assistant” the firm recently announced a couple of months ago. (If it is that you don’t like the dog, there is also a “stylized representation of a Mini” option.)

When you get to cycle through the “Mini Experience Modes,” which as you should know change the handling and responsiveness of the car, Mini says that the interior lights, instrument cluster, and even the OLED screen will all take on colors in a bid to help match the vibe of the mode.

The New Mini Cooper EV Voice Control Feature

Voice control on the other hand can effectively be activated by saying “Hey Mini,” and it is used, as you might already have guessed, for navigation, phone calls, in-car entertainment, and even “numerous other vehicle functions.” The firm also states that the car in question will learn from your routine when it is that you take the same routes regularly and can also learn to roll down the window in the same place automatically, for instance. The display as you should know runs the Android-based Mini Operating System 9.

Performance and Range

Mini has stated that the 184hp Cooper E can get to 60mph from a stop in 7.3 seconds and also has 214lb-ft of torque, while the more powerful 218hp Cooper SE variant on the other hand, which reportedly offers 243 lb-ft of torque, can do it in 6.7 seconds. The Cooper E makes use of a 40.7kWh battery, and the Cooper SE’s on the other hand has a 54.2 kWh capacity.

Mini’s New Cooper EV Design

Finally, although the body style of the car is still generally in keeping with previous designs, there are however some changes. The LED surrounds of the oval-shaped headlights’ now have coordinated “welcome and goodbye animation” and “three adjustable light signatures,” while the rear of the car has been switched up with angular lights that can also be personalized by owners, as you can see in a TikTok video that was shared.
