Mini Electric Gets Ready For Christmas With 2,000 LEDs

Author: |

Mini is kicking off the Christmas season by assisting a Mini Electric owner in wrapping the vehicle with 2,000 smart LED lights. In the United States, the Mini Cooper SE is known as the SE. It is a fast car with a zero-to-sixty speed of under 6 seconds. Despite its generally favorable attitude, the main drawback is the 94Ah i3 battery, which gives it a range of only 110 miles according to the EPA. The Mini SE debuted in showrooms in the United States in March 2020, with a starting price of $30,750. It has a front-mounted electric motor with 181 horsepower and torque of 270 Nm. The automobile has a peak speed of 150 kilometers per hour.

The SE, with a starting price of $29,900 that drops to $22,400 after the tax credit, should be on your list if you want a fun, economical daily driver and don't care too much about range.

This ultra-bright Mini Electric will be touring the UK for five weeks to raise money for the MS Trust, Duchenne UK, and the Alzheimer's Society. On November 25, the trip begins.

Nicholas Martin, the project's creator, is decking up a Mini for the holidays. This year, he received backing from the automobile, Festive Lights, and Twinkly, an Italian smart lighting firm.

Martin has been igniting Minis for a long time. In 2019, he brightened it even further, and a resident of his hometown of Bracknell requested whether he might drive it to surprise an 11-year-old youngster with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Because of the Covid-19 outbreak, several tree-lighting celebrations had to be canceled in 2020, Martin decided to extend things even more. Instead, he drove about in the lit-up Mini to cheer folks up. He also helped the MS Trust and Duchenne UK collect £5,000 each.

"I’m so grateful for the incredible support behind the project and the teams involved this year. The Mini Electric is even more exciting to drive and means all my trips on the tour are environmentally friendly and the app-controlled Twinkly lights with their amazing customizable animations really give the car a bit of extra magic. I can’t wait to get out on the road to spread some Festive Mini spirit and raise lots of money for the three charities," Martin said.
