Set to join the rest of the latest Countryman range, the S E plug-in uses an all-wheel drive powertrain that combines a three-cylinder petrol engine with an electric motor and six-speed automatic. Is a plug-in hybrid right for me?
The electric motor, which drives the rear wheels, produces the equivalent of 88bhp and the Countryman S E can offer 221bhp in total when the engine and electric motor are both active. In peak performance mode, the Countryman hybrid can cover the 0-62mph sprint in 6.8 seconds.
MINI says that it’s possible to drive this Countryman on electric power only for up to 25 miles and at speeds of up to 78 mph. The lithium ion battery used to power the electric motor is stored under the rear seats, which are slightly raised compared to other versions of the Countryman. The fuel tank is also smaller consequently, but only by 35 litres. The official fuel economy for this MINI is 134.5mpg combined, while CO2 emissions are a mere 49g/km.
This plug-in hybrid’s battery can be recharged from an ordinary wall plug in 3 hours and 15 minutes, or 2 hours and 15 minutes with a specialist wall box.
The exterior of this MINI features an “E” emblem to distinguish it more as a hybrid vehicle next to other versions of the latest Countryman. If you’re a MINI fan you might be interested to hear that the MINI electric is now available.
Electric vehicles are easy to charge, cheap to run and better for the environment.
If every car on the road was an electric car, we'd all benefit from cleaner air in our lungs.
