The temperatures are rising and with them the anticipation of outdoor activities and excursions into nature. The model-specific railing and roof rack systems from the MINI Original Accessories range create ideal conditions for leaving the limits of urban mobility behind and combining driving fun with active leisure activities. The escape from everyday life can be made particularly sustainable with the MINI Cooper SE (combined power consumption: 17,6 - 15,2 kWh / 100 km according to WLTP, 16,9 - 14,9 kWh / 100 km according to NEDC). As the only purely electrically powered model in its competitive environment, it can also be optionally equipped with roof rails. Nothing stands in the way of locally emission-free transport of roof boxes, bicycles or other sports and leisure equipment.
Original accessories Mini Electric
With a range of 203 to 234 kilometers determined in the WLTP test cycle, the MINI Cooper SE is ideally equipped to explore new paths away from the urban jungle. And in terms of versatility and transport capacity, the first all-electric model from the British premium brand is in no way inferior to the conventionally powered variants of the MINI 3-door.
When all four seats are used, its luggage compartment volume is also 211 liters. And after folding down the rear seat backrest, which can be divided in a ratio of 60:40, the storage space increases to 3 liters, like in a MINI 731-door with combustion engine. And that's not all: the railing and roof rack systems from the MINI Original Accessories range turn the electrified model into a versatile transport talent in no time at all.
The prerequisites for this are provided by the roof rails in matt black, which are available ex works. On the roof of the MINI Cooper SE, it forms the stable basis for various fastening and transport systems that are offered both for it and for the conventionally powered model variants of the MINI 3-door and MINI 5-door in the MINI Original Accessories range. The rail carrier, which is available there as a retrofit product, enables the MINI roof box to be locked in place conveniently and securely, for example. With a dead weight of 13 kilograms, it has a capacity of 320 liters. This means there is enough space for sports textiles, bicycle helmets or camping and picnic equipment. Even skis can be stored in the 1,90 meter long roof box. The all-black box has embossed stripes and MINI lettering. It is lockable and can be opened on both long sides.

Because the brand-typical principle of creative use of space also applies to the roof of the MINI Cooper SE, there is even space for a bicycle in addition to the transport box. With the touring bike mount, also available in the MINI Original Accessories range, two-wheelers of different types and sizes can be mounted upright and securely on the railing rack. The bracket made of high-strength aluminum fixes the bike with a lockable clamping system and two tension straps. The range also includes other transport solutions such as ski racks and an aluminum luggage basket, which are also compatible with the railing carrier.
The MINI Cooper SE with the model-specific Travel & Comfort System is the ideal companion for short trips or weekend trips. It consists of a base support that can be firmly mounted between the headrest bars of the driver or front passenger seat. Various system attachments can be quickly and conveniently attached and clicked into place. For example, holders for tablets or clothes hangers and universal hooks for bags are securely attached to the backrests of the front seats.

In addition, a folding table that can be used as a work or storage surface can be attached to the base support of the Travel & Comfort System. It can be adjusted in height and inclination as required and is securely held on the backrest of the seat. Another clever detail of the folding table is the fold-out cup holder. The universal holder for tablets with a screen diameter of between seven and eleven inches is an ideal solution in the fight against impatience and boredom in the rear of the MINI Cooper SE the city limits can easily start an individual entertainment program for the passengers in the back seats.
