The plug-in hybrid MINI – Cooper S E Countryman ALL4shown at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show reminds us of the ‘good old times of the all-electric MINI E somewhere back in 2008…but a lot has changed since then, and MINI will soon have its first mass produced plug-in.

In fact, sometime in mid-2017 (~June specifically) there again will be an opportunity to sit behind the wheel of an electrified MINI.

Here we have gathered some additional videos from the stage in LA, presenting the exterior and interior of the car, which is based on the second generation Countryman.

MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 spec

  • all-wheel drive with 1.5L 3-cylinder TwinPower Turbo Technology petrol engine (134 hp) and 87 hp electric motor
  • up to 40 km (25 miles) of all-electric range NEDC – one can mostly likely expect around 25-28 km/15-17 miles EPA
  • 7.6 kWh battery
  • 0-60 mph in 6.8 seconds

    Nice addition to the family! The attack of plug-in hybrids has begun. Next will be plug-in version of Beetle.

    That’s a good start..However in my view plugin hybrids are a “Half Baked” excuse of an EV, Having “TWICE” the parts subject to break & to maintain. In conclusion. they’re moving in the right direction , If they could only let go of the ICE motor.

    They literally could have put the 33kwh battery pack and all the other necessary bits from the i3, do some fancy engineering to get it to 200+ horsepower, add a range extender, and it would’ve sold itself. Sigh

    This will be another one of those things that plug up public chargers while adding few miles.. Hopefully there will be an indication on the car that it is ‘done’ so the next guy in line can steal the cord to get his car going.
