In the language of the Inuit, Nanuk means “polar bear”. The new bodycolor Nanuq White for the MINI Cooper SE in the Resolute Edition is reminiscent of the light-colored fur of the impressive inhabitants of the northern polar regions. Even in the extreme sub-zero temperatures prevailing there, the electric drive, high-voltage battery, power electronics and charging technology impress with reliably high performance. Its 135 kW/184 hp electric motor is equally impressive. It accelerates the MINI Cooper SE (power consumption combined: 17.6 – 15.2 kWh/100 km according to WLTP; CO2 emissions combined: 0 g/km) from 0 to 100 km/h in just 7.3 seconds. With no gearshift interruptions, the powerful character of the polar white special model thus comes across particularly intensively.
Drivers of the iconic MINI 3-door can individually change the vehicle’s responsiveness through the various MINI Driving Modes, choosing between the impulsive SPORT Mode through MID to the very economical GREEN+ Mode. The range of up to 234 kilometers determined in the WLTP test cycle enables MINI-typical driving pleasure far beyond the city limits.
Exclusive equipment details
In the Resolute Edition, the exclusively designed hood stripes with their color gradient from a light to a dark gold tone as well as the eponymous edition lettering “RESOLUTE” emphasize the sporty yet elegant character of the special model. Customers can opt for a Nanuq White paint finish for the roof and mirror caps or set an exciting contrast in black. 17-inch light-alloy wheels in the Tentacle Spoke Black variant round off the exterior features of the edition model in style.
The graphic, evenly curved lines in a light gold tone create a sophisticated striped pattern on the interior dashboards. For short sprints as well as longer journeys, the comfortable sports seats with armrests and knee rolls provide comfortable support. They are part of the MINI Yours Leather Lounge equipment variant and are offered in the MINI Resolute Edition in Carbon Black. Other equipment highlights in the interior include the anthracite-colored headliner, sun-protective glazing, and the particularly easy-grip sports steering wheel in Nappa finish.
In the cockpit, the eDrive services on the display of the central instrument provide information on current energy consumption as well as range and give tips on economical driving. From November 2022, the MINI Driving Assistant will be standard equipment on the MINI Cooper SE Resolute Edition, enhancing both safety and driving comfort. At speeds between 10 and 60 km/h, the Active Guard driving assistance system brakes the vehicle. Lane Departure Warning signals when the vehicle is about to leave its lane on roads with lane markers. And the camera-based Active Cruise Control (ACC) system automatically regulates the distance to the vehicle in front in addition to the set speed in flowing highway and country road traffic. The system is active between 30 and 140 km/h.
