MINI Malaysia has issued an updated price list on its line-up of cars following a series of launches since the Sales Tax Exemption announcement in June this year. The new launches include the MINI John Cooper Works GP and the all-electric MINI Cooper SE.
The MINI John Cooper Works is the most extreme MINI to date, with 306 hp and 450 Nm. 0 to 100 km/h takes just 5.2 seconds, with a top speed of 265 km/h but that’s not its only charm. There are only 3,000 units in the world and 10 of which are here in Malaysia. Unfortunately, according to MINI Malaysia, they’re all sold out.
As for the MINI Cooper SE, perhaps the biggest appeal about it, aside from its striking colour combinations, is that 80% of it 32.6 kWh lithium-ion battery can be charged up within 2.5 hours using the MINI Wallbox Plus.
Operating with a single electric motor, the all-electric MINI Cooper SE generates 184 hp and 270 Nm to power the front wheels via a single-speed transmission. The car even comes with two different regenerative braking modes to choose from.
Aside from the all-electric MINI Cooper SE, and the JCW GP, the other new addition to the price list is the Sidewalk Edition launched here in July. Compared to the previous price list, prices of every model remain the same except with the Pure and Sport variants of the Countryman.
Both the 2019 and 2020 models may be similar in price with SST but with the sales tax exemption, the 2019 models actually costs more than the 2020 models. This according to MINI Malaysia is due to a transmission change, from 8-speed auto to 7-speed DCT, which sees a different calculation in terms of sales tax exemption.
