Mini renames Cooper SE's 'Corona Spoke' wheels

Given the Coronavirus outbreak worldwide, Mini has decided to rename the Cooper SE's "Corona Spoke" wheels to "Power Spoke".

From Roadshow:

"The wheel was renamed from 'Corona Spoke' to 'Power Spoke' out of sensitivity to the COVID-19 situation," a Mini spokesperson told Roadshow on Thursday, following a report from InsideEVs earlier this week. "Although the wheel design was named well before the current pandemic, a decision was proactively made to change the name in advance of any feedback being received."

"Power Spoke" makes perfect sense, as the wheels are said to resemble the design of a UK power outlet. (Despite being owned by a German company, Mini loves to flaunt its British roots.) These 17-inch wheels come on the Cooper SE's highest "Iconic" trim level.
