A MINI Countryman prototype full of whirls with a “Hybrid Test Vehicle” sign on the side (similar to those found on early BMW i3 prototypes) was recently spotted testing.

It’s expected that MINI (part of BMW Group) is developing a new plug-in hybrid MINI with AWD, quite possibly the most powerful MINI ever.

Some sources on the net are indicating it could be equipped with a 1.5-liter engine derived maybe from the BMW Active Tourer.

Here’s video with photos of the Mini hybrid testing:

The car is adorable. Just need to know what ev milage it gets and if it will be available in Australia.

If the source article over on autoblog is correct, and this comes to the market with roughly 240 hp and AWD, count me in!

googling for Scott26/27 or Herr26 confirmations….

2017 is shaping up to be a watershed year for EVs.

This has huge appeal. Id love to have one

Rather have the Superlegga.
