Meet the MINI Electric Pacesetter

MINI Electric Pacesetter to become Official FIA Formula E Safety Car


Formula E’s latest Safety Car is raring to go. The new MINI Electric Pacesetter pushes the boundaries of electric possibilities to showcase MINI’s performance potential for the future.
Delivering driving thrills in electric form, this high-octane track-ready car proves you don’t need petrol to make an impact.

Thanks to our decades of racing experience, we like to think we know a thing or two when it comes to stripping back for maximum impact. Developed with motorsport experts, the Electric Pacesetter has been refined to the max, with excess weight eliminated.

"We worked closely with our colleagues at BMW Motorsport to develop the form of the wheel arches and front and rear aprons, and the optimisation programme for them included weight-saving measures. This visually striking, technically precise design language gives the car its pervasive sense of emotional engagement and excitement.”

Bruno Correia, FIA Formula E Safety Car driver, said: “Agility, performance, and a cool looking car. The MINI Electric Pacesetter Safety Car of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship has got it all.”

And because we’ve never really been ones to blend in, we’ve given the Electric Pacesetter a design that seriously stands out. John Cooper Works chequered accents meet electric-inspired neon elements.

With its track innovations, we can’t wait to see how Pacesetter will inspire future generations of Electric. It’s safe to say – electric energy and John Cooper Works power make for a winning formula.
