MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4: 30% more range

MINI updated the Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 with a more powerful battery pack, which gives it a better range.

MINI is about to celebrate its 60th anniversary at the Frankfurt Motor Show, which will open in just over a week. Beyond the rich history surrounding the diminutive British city, MINI also wants to take advantage of this show to talk about the future of the brand, a future more electric than ever!

The MINI Cooper S E will be at the center of the discussions, the manufacturer immersing itself in the all-electric niche with this first true zero emission variant. However, the electric penchant of the brand is not limited to this particular model, the British carmaker has already been offering the MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 for a few years.

The plug-in hybrid crossover also receives added kWh for the coming year as the fully electric range increases somewhat. The manufacturer mentions an increase of about 30% through the use of a higher capacity battery. Indeed, it goes from 7.7 to 10 kWh.

The official press release speaks of a possible range between 55 and 57 km, a distance that may be greatly reduced when the model will cross the Atlantic. The current plug-in hybrid crossover was able to run for 19 km without using its 3-cylinder turbo engine, while MINI promised 42 km on the European cycle. We can expect an autonomy of at least 25 km with the North American calculation method, which is a little better, we must admit.

Fortunately, the addition of this 10 kWh battery does not affect the space on board since the new unit occupies the same area as the old one. Moreover, the vehicle’s performance is identical to that of the model in service since 2017. In other words, while waiting for the all-electric MINI, the Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 remains the best performance/fuel consumption ratio of the brand.
