BMW Electric Drivetrain Evolution And The New Mini-E
Irvine MINI is excited to confirm, The new Mini-E will have the potential to be even more “electric” than the i3. The traditional advantages of all-wheel drive are obvious—improved traction and handling, especially in slick conditions. In ICE vehicles, AWD carries the costs of added complexity and weight (and money), and the intrusion on internal space from the longitudinal drive shaft tunnel. With an EV, these drawbacks are largely non-existent; instead of a small motor at one end of the car, you have two smaller motors, one for each axle. Supporting structure would be lighter for each, and mechanical stresses (and wear) would be lower. The combined power and torque would likely be made greater than that of the single motor they replaced—for more flexibility and better performance.
Irvine MINI’s helpful and knowledgeable staff, expert factory-trained technicians, state-of-the-art service department, comprehensive parts department and one of the nation’s largest selections of new, used and certified pre-owned MINI’s have made Irvine MINI a landmark in Southern California’s automotive landscape.
