Classic Mini Electric Conversions Available!

Don't want to wait for your own electric Mini? Have no fear! The UK-based company electric bicycle company Swind has already started making a limited number of electric conversions of classic Minis for British customers. You can expect it to be a cross between the Cooper SE and the electric Rocketman.

The classic Minis get a 24 kilowatt-hour battery (about 2/3 the size of the modern Cooper SE) that delivers a potentially similar 125 miles of electric range. An internal estimate from Mini pegged the upcoming Cooper SE at 114 miles on the EPA cycle. It has 110-horsepower electric motor, which is significantly short of the Cooper SE's 181 horsepower, but in the smaller, lighter original Mini, the effect is only slightly slower acceleration of 0-60 mph in 9.2 seconds. Swind limits the top speed of the electric Mini to 80 mph, which is perhaps wise, since the chassis was never designed to go that fast with its original gas engine.
