The MINI Electric – Big Icon, Small Footprint
Everything you loved about the modernized MINI Cooper for 2018 now incorporates innovative electric mobility. With the all-new MINI Countryman Plug-In Electric Hybrid, it combines all the vehicle’s trademark performance and handling with the environmentally conscious technology of an electric hybrid engine. It’s a timeless classic for the roads of tomorrow.
Charging the MINI Electric is just as innovative as driving it—all you need is a 120-volt household outlet. You have the option to choose between three different driving modes: MAX eDrive for all-electric power, Auto eDrive for a fusion between gas and electric, or Save Battery to drive with traditional gas power. Meanwhile, the MINI Electric’s regenerative braking system returns energy and recharges the battery as you drive, adding even more fuel efficiency as you continue to move.
The Power of Electric
If you thought the electric motor would mean sacrificing the MINI’s thrilling power, then you’d be surprised. Under the hood, the lithium ion battery produces the initial acceleration with its eBoost technology and propels you with an impressive drive range of nearly 19 kilometres, while the combustion engine provides the rest with 420 kilometres. The MINI Electric also jumps the starting line with accelerating from 0-100 km/h in just 6.7 seconds. Additionally, the MINI Electric’s eALL4 All-Wheel Drive gives you confident treading over any of the elements or driving conditions without sacrificing performance or leaving a heavy carbon footprint. Combined with the standard 6-speed automatic transmission, you’ll never even notice the difference with driving electric.
More To Love with MINI
Everything that you loved about the classic MINI Cooper is still here on the MINI Electric. It still retains its spacious interior with 5-person seating and up to 1,275-litres of cargo space when you fold the rear seats down. Need help loading the cargo? The available Comfort Access feature lets you open the rear tailgate hands-free so you can get to loading without any wasted time. Right in the middle of the front console, the 8.8-inch high-res touchscreen brings you all the conveniences of the MNI Connected Infotainment system to bring all of your multimedia needs right within reach.
