Talking about the range, brand is claiming 270 kilometres in full charge whereas the charging time is different with different chargers, like, 
  • it will charge 80% in 2.5 hours by 11kW AC charger (home) 
  • and 36 minutes for 80% by 50kW DC charger 


The alloy design is very different from others and it is looking very cool indeed. The size of the tyre is 205/45 R17, low profile tyres, yo, impractical. Features disc brakes at both the ends of the car. 


The LED lights are adding great look to the car and also illuminating greatly at night. 

  • Headlamps- LED

Its Mini by name and by size too, dimensions are like, 
Length- 3.850m 
Width- 1.727m
Height- 1.432m
Wheelbase- 2.495m 

Exterior 
Its a Mini man, the blend of cuteness and sportiness is just unreal. The kind of sculpting they done is amazing although there is not much difference from other Minis but still the aroma of freshness is just mind blowing.
Face 
That same Mini affairs are there but changes have been made like the grille has no use so they have closed it completely given glossy black finish. Whole grille is surrounded by glossy back treatment. The bumper is sharp which is adding more punch to the appearance of the car.
It get side curtains for better aerodynamic bits, same signature LED headlights are there with oval DRLs that also doubles up as indicators. Hood gets a scope which has no use, ORVMs are coloured differently from body colour which you can choose from colour options, if you want to. Get rain sensing wipers too. 

Side profile 

The length of the car is not impressive at all, it's a Mini and dimensions always remind you that. This three door car with black out roof and along with that black out pillars as well. It get freaking awesome frameless doors which looks phenomenal when open. Black cladding is there to maintain the visual bulk. The alloy design is amazing and kinda unique too, the wheels get the colour touch which is available on the ORVMs and this things gives it more detail and intersting appeal. Window area is pretty big but you can't open the rear windows usual thing of 2 or 3-door cars but the rear glasses are tinted black. On the side you'll find the charging point.



Rear end 

The best thing about Mini is their signature Union Jag design tail lamps, they look so freaking cool nah, just fab, indeed. At the back it get all the hatch things like, defogger, wiper, washer and simple spoiler. Down there it get reflectors and bunch of sensors. 

Comes with the old school antenna and a panaromic sunroof, actually brand is calling it panaromic but it is not, its a dual roof setup. 


Interior 

Like always the cabin is full of enthusiasm, full of sportiness and the plane kind of feeling is awesome due to those aircraft like touches. 


Rear seats 

Its super rare to get spacious rear seats in 2-door or 3-door car, and same is thing is happening in this new electric Mini. At rear you get proper adjustable headrests, seat belts and all the important things but space is not for fully grown adults at all, it might accomodate kids and babies because of child seat mount. Here you get 50:50 split which increases the boot space mind blowingly. 


Front seats 

The seats are awesome with nice chunky side bolsters that hugs you like a love once, get adjustable headrests, adjustable under thigh support but everything is manual over here, go back and look at the price, it is a freaking 50 lakh car with no electric seat adjust not even for driver, this is weird Mini. Get armrest with some space and wireless charging.


Dashboard 

Not much different from other Minis, but get great texture on the dash which is giving it an astonishing effect. Being a Mini and a relative of BMW there is no compromise with quality levels. 

At the center you get a circular style infotainment system, the system is not circular the housing is with ambient light touch. The system is full of features and graphics & quality of the screen is splendid although it won't won't feature 360 camera as well and all the ADAS things are optional. Below this screen it have physical AC controls and aircraft style buttons to control different things. Then you get cup holders and a drive selector knob. Along with drive mode buttons,  infotainment system controls and electronic parking brake. 

Steering wheel and instrument cluster

To direct you car brand has given three spoke multifunction steering wheel which is adjustable for reach and height too. 

Now, all the Mini comes with the new full digital oval shape instrument cluster that is showing you bunch of information about the vehicle like, range, speed, battery, power, temperature, odometer, tripmeters and other things. Mini is not offer heads up display as well but that is available in the options list. 


The car is majestic by looks but at this price, I believe they have fitted small battery that is not delivering good range and power as well. 7.3 seconds from touching 100 is not a Mini thing and other than that, the car missed out few features, like electric seat adjust and 360 camera. 
This is first EV by Mini, the Mini Cooper SE........

The new Honda NX500 has been launched at 5.90 lakh | Price, Power, Features, Mileage | HighRPM

Less traveled roads and silent routes have million of things to say, thousands of things to show, and hundreds of things to teach. Every turn is unexpected, every stone is unfamiliar, the unknown wind is looking at you surprisingly, and the unknown terrain is appreciating you and testing your control over the bar and your mind. Your thoughts are enslaved by your passion, and breathtaking views are eating your words in the same way your NX500 is eating miles.  Honda has launched a new adventure tourer machine in the market, the NX500. The NX500 has adventurous body language which tells you how eager this bike is to tackle any terrain you throw at it. That badass style is making this bike a head-turner, being an adventure tourer it has to be practical & tough and the stance this motorcycle has is telling you how practical and tough this machine is.

Does Aprilia RS 457 has that Aprilia thing? | Price, Features, Power, Engine | HighRPM

The smell of adrenaline is soothing to those who know how to push their limits, who know how to lick the track, who know how to scare their rivals, who know how to go fast while standing with the fasters, and to those who are coming out from Aprilia's factory where their blood has to experience the addition of aggressiveness.  Aprilia has launched the all-new Aprilia RS457. Even though this one has a small engine unlike Aprilia, it has that same level of craziness, zest, and quality as Aprilia.  There is one more fact about this bike which is a proud moment for all Indians because this Aprilia is completely built in India. The bike has charming looks as you expect from Aprilia, and along with looks the quality and the fit finish of this bike are just top-notch. This bike is standing against the BMW G 310RR , KTM RC 390 , newly launched Yamaha R3, TVS Apache 310RR, and none other than the Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Ninja 400 .  The price of Aprilia RS 457 So the bike is only availabl

Which one you should buy, the Kawasaki Ninja 400 or the Aprilia RS 457? | HighRPM

Recently, in December 2023, Aprilia launched its all-new Aprilia RS 457 , the first made-in-India Italian bike. The Aprilia is a brand which is known for its powerful, big, and track-centric machines. This RS 457 has less power than its other sibling but can shake the segment with its amazing power-to-weight ratio and Aprilia's fit finish. This Aprilia has some rivals in the market but in my opinion, the most strong one is from a family of monsters like Aprilia RS 457. This rival has been present in the industry for years and has won many hearts too, I'm talking about the Kawasaki Ninja 400 .   These two bikes are superb at their job and this thing leads to confusion. In terms of looks personally, to me Aprilia is looking more dashing than Ninja, now it doesn't mean that Ninja is not a handsome bike there is no doubt but for me, Aprilia is a bit more sexier. The topic to discuss is definitely not looks, it's about power, price, and other things, so, drop your gears and

Honda has launched the NX500 their new adventure tourer, the NX500 has everything necessary for mile-munching and adventure trips. The Honda NX500 is standing against many adventure tourers and among them, the biggest rival in my opinion is the new Royal Enfield Himalayan 450.  The new RE Himalayan 450 is loaded with features and power too, and the price of the new Himalayan 450 is very attractive as well. So, it's going to be very interesting to see which of these two bikes which one succeeds in grabbing the market, and which one you should choose.
