We know the MINI Countryman Plug-in Electric Hybrid, but on July 9th the manufacturer will unveil its first fully electric model.
MINI’s website is announcing a brand-new model to be unveiled on July 9th. It mentions that this model will be the first 100% electric vehicle of the brand.
The description mentions that this first fully electric MINI “combines MINI’s inventive spirit, creative use of space and iconic design.”
This MINI will be launched in some markets later this year and will arrive in more regions next year. For the moment, the countries where it can be reserved are Germany, France, the Netherlands, Sweden and Norway.
The next markets that can reserve the new electric model are the United States, Great Britain, Italy and Spain.
In the video above we can see what appears to be a gray-color 3-door MINI Cooper with yellow fluorescent accents, including the roof. The grille also looks a tad different and completely closed with a round emblem with the letter “E” on the inside.
The British carmaker has not revealed any information about the powertrain of its new car. One could however predict something coming from the BMW i3 perhaps.
No mention at this time if this first 100% electric MINI will cross the Canadian border.
