Significant Milestone

The first electric MINI John Cooper Works is set to make its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, ahead of its world premiere this autumn.

The new MINI John Cooper Works E PROtotype is set to storm up the iconic hill at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The car marks a significant milestone as the first-ever electric MINI John Cooper Works model. Featuring a striking design and advanced electric powertrain, this prototype embodies MINI’s commitment to innovation and electromobility.

Celebrating its world premiere later this year, the MINI John Cooper Works E represents a bold move in MINI’s evolution, combining the brand’s rich heritage with cutting-edge technology. The future John Cooper Works lineup will include both petrol and all-electric models.

In a nod to the historic victory of the MINI Cooper S at the 1964 Rallye Monte Carlo 60 years ago, the race car features a distinctive camouflage designed by the MINI design team, and the ‘37’ logo, commemorating the milestone achievement. This emblem serves as a homage to MINI’s rich motorsport tradition.

The car’s debut at the famous festival will offer a glimpse of the future of high-performance electric vehicles, showcasing MINI’s iconic design and engineering prowess.

Fans and automotive enthusiasts alike can expect an unforgettable showcase of the MINI John Cooper Works E PROtotype’s capabilities as it tackles the challenging hill climb. The 1.17 mile, nine-turn track climbs 92.7 metres (304 ft), an average gradient of 4.9 per cent.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed is being held in West Sussex, England, from July 11-14.
