The GM Mini EV Cabrio is the cutest car we’ve ever seen. Hands down. No questions asked. And we defy you to find a cuter car.

Every time I see a picture of these cute lil’ cars come across my newsfeed, I fully expect to see a Playmobile toy step out.
The new car isn’t a new concept but a cuter, convertible version of the Mini EV, which sold nearly 500,000 vehicles in 2021. The car’s $5,000 price tag could significantly drive those sales.
The special edition will likely cost between $10,000–$20,000 more.
This new release aligns with GM’s global plan to release 30 EV models globally by 2025.
What’s Under the Hood?
The Mini EV Cabrio engine has a whopping 27 horsepower and tops out at 100 kilometers per hour (62 mph). You may roll your eyes, but 27 horses is a lot of horses. It has two doors and two seats (it can’t carry too many people with only 27 horses).
The Mini EV Cabrio can drive 74 miles on the 9.3 kWh battery and 105 miles on the 13.9 kWh battery. And that may seem low compared with the more than 200-mile-range averaged by US EVs in 2021, but more than sufficient for in-town driving.
When Can I Get One?
Unless you live in China and you’ve already entered the raffle, you probably won’t get one. GM-Wuling plans to produce a few hundred of the Cabrio models each month, and GM will give raffle winners the first crack at purchasing the new Cabrios.
