MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 - MINI Plug-in Hybrid

New MINI Countryman Plug-in Hybrid

MINI’s first ever Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) - MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4, launched in the UK on 24 June 2017.

The new MINI Countryman plug-in hybrid offers the best of both worlds; a perfect combination of petrol engine and electric motor. This new, ultra-efficient model helps to achieve maximum efficiency without losing MINI’s signature driving excitement.

The MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 is able to run on electricity alone not just in urban traffic, but for long distances too – at a top speed of 77mph and with a range of up to 26 miles.

The front wheels are powered by the combustion engine, the rear wheels by the electric motor offering ALL4 traction with a combined system output 224hp and 385Nm of Torque. It packs quite a punch too, sprinting from 0-62mph in just 6.8 seconds while achieving a combined fuel consumption of up to 134.5 mpg and a CO2 figure of 49g/km. 

KEY FEATURES.  

  • Virtually no recognisable transition between electric motor and petrol engine
  • Sustainable drive, emitting just 49g CO2/km
  • Electric top speed of 77mph
  • Purely electric drive within a 26mile range
  • Acceleration from 0 to 62mph in 6.8 seconds

DRIVING MODES.

The PHEV model offers three driving modes:

  • MAX eDRIVE for use in urban environments, the vehicle is powered solely by the electric motor whilst the battery holds enough charge.
  • AUTO eDRIVE for maximum efficiency as both, engine and electric motor work together.
  • SAVE BATTERY to enjoy electric driving when needed, it allows the driver to conserve or build up the high –voltage battery’s reserves for later on.

DRIVE TRAIN.

The MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 uses its dual drivetrain to achieve impressive performance and economy figures along with the ability for zero tailpipe emissions when in eDrive pure electric mode. The benefit of the Dual drivetrain on this new model is the ability of the two axles to deliver four-wheel drive when both the ICE and electric engine are being used.
