"Due to the fact that the batteries are at the bottom of the car, the
centre of gravity is even lower," said Heilmer. "It feels really agile
in curves, it feels lightweight. The battery will give you up to 145
miles on a single charge, and you can charge it up to 80 per cent
within 35 minutes."

Some tech details at this site

2-zone automatic air conditioning with heat pump technology and
auxiliary heating.

All trim levels of the new MINI Cooper SE includes a 2-zone automatic
air conditioning system with separate ventilation and temperature
control for the driver and front passenger sides. The interior is
heated by means of a heat pump which collects waste heat from the
motor, drive control, high-voltage battery and outside air before
feeding it into the air conditioning system.

The heat pump developed for the new MINI Cooper SE is particularly
efficient. It uses 75 per cent less energy than a conventional
electric heating system and provides a high level of climate comfort
in winter mode. In order to increase range, the cooling and heating
circuits are directly linked to the drive technology, forming a highly
efficient overall system. An integrated control system guarantees a
pleasant interior temperature and an ideal operating temperature for
the high-voltage battery at the same time – independently of each
other, by means of cooling and heating.

The automatic air conditioning of the new MINI Cooper SE also offers
an auxiliary heating and a stationary air conditioning function. This
enables the interior to be heated up or cooled down to a specified
temperature before setting off. The driver can use the MINI Connected
Remote App to set the intended time of departure so as to
pre-condition the interior in advance as required.
