Mini Countryman E Plug-In Hybrid Spotted

Fri Jul 01, 2016 12:48 pm

Mini’s next electric car appears to be a plug-in hybrid version of the Countryman called the Countryman E.

Mini has never made a full-scale production plug-in vehicle, though it did release the prototype Mini E in limited volume starting back in 2008.

With the Countryman E, Mini could have a big hit on its hand.

The mini Countryman e uses similar powertrain technology as BMW i8 it has a 1.5 turbo charged 3 cylinder engine that powers the front wheels with a six-speed automatic gearbox and an electric motor powering the back wheels

Am I correct in saying that there are two motors with the mini Countryman E1 rear and a small one for the front that primarily runs backwards as a generator?

Basically it's like a regular petrol/ diesel car at the front with the specs of an EV at the back.

It depends where you buy it and what options but it runs in the high $25,000 range
