MUNICH -- BMW's Mini brand is heralding its shift to battery electric cars by launching a convertible version of its full-electric hatchback.
The car's production run will be limited to 999 units for Europe only, with 150 units destined for the UK market, Mini said in a statement.
It will be called the Electric Convertible in the UK and Cooper SE Cabrio in Europe. North American sales are not planned.
The convertible will use the Mini Electric/Cooper SE electric drivetrain, with a 135-kilowatt/184-hp electric motor. It will have a range of 124 miles (200 km) under the WLTP test cycle.
