Introducing the 2025 Mini Cooper: A Glimpse of Minimalist Interior
Mini is preparing to unveil its highly anticipated 2025 model of the signature Mini Cooper hatch, and recently, they provided a sneak peek of the car’s simplified and minimalist interior.
After showcasing the exterior design in April, the focus now shifts to the interior, where the legacy of the original Alec Issigonis-designed Mini seamlessly transforms into the contemporary dashboard of the 2025 model. A captivating teaser video shared on Twitter by Mini revealed the resemblance between the two generations.
In the new Cooper, the centerpiece remains a prominent circular screen positioned at the center of the dashboard. This screen will be accompanied on each side by panels adorned with soft-touch materials, emphasizing both style and comfort. Notably, this dashboard design will be standardized across the Mini range, which means we can expect it to appear in the revamped 2025 Countryman and the all-new 2025 Aceman as well.
Scheduled for release later this year, the 2025 Mini Cooper will be launched in an all-electric version, representing a significant move towards sustainability. Production of the electric variant is set to take place in China as part of the collaboration forged with Great Wall Motors back in 2018. Meanwhile, the gas-powered version, an updated edition of the current hatch, will continue to be manufactured in Mini’s long-standing home in Oxford, U.K.
For eco-conscious drivers, the electric Cooper will be available in two options: the Cooper E and the Cooper SE. The Cooper E will come equipped with a 40.7-kwh battery and a single electric motor delivering 181 hp. On the other hand, the Cooper SE will boast a more powerful 54.2-kwh battery and a single electric motor generating 215 hp. Excitingly, rumors of an electric John Cooper Works performance model have been circulating after spy sightings.
While details on the gas-powered version are yet to be officially confirmed, it is likely to retain the current generation’s 1.5-liter turbo-3 and 2.0-liter turbo-4 powertrains. Potential improvements in performance and efficiency are anticipated, further elevating the driving experience in the new Cooper.
As the launch date draws nearer, Mini enthusiasts and automotive enthusiasts alike eagerly await the arrival of the 2025 Cooper, poised to be a seamless blend of timeless design and futuristic innovation.
