There are no safety reviews of the Mini Cooper Electric from either the NHTSA or IIHS. But the standard Cooper did manage to get Good ratings in every crash test that was conducted by the IIHS. The headlights were rated as merely Acceptable. The NHTSA tested the regular hardtop, giving it an overall rating of four stars.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
While Mini does provide all of the modern basics, the list of driver assistance features is short compared to its competitors. Standard safety tech includes dynamic stability control, ABS brakes, eight airbags including side-curtain and front knee airbags, and auto LED headlights. All models come with forward collision warning, a rearview camera, lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking, and rear parking sensors. The Iconic is the only one that comes with standard active cruise control, front parking sensors, and a parking assistant, but these extras are all available on the lower two sub-trims. Every variant can be optionally specified with a head-up display.

Neither the 2023 nor the 2022 Mini Cooper Electric Hardtop was subject to any recalls at the time of writing, but 2021 models were recalled once for a faulty passenger seat belt malfunction that could pose a higher injury risk in the event of an accident.
It comes with a standard four-year/50,000-mile basic warranty, a four-year/50,000-mile drivetrain warranty, and a generous three-year/36,000-mile maintenance plan. The electrical components are additionally covered for eight years or 100,000 miles.
