Say hello to the new MINI Countryman – the first supersized MINI to come with an all-electric drivetrain. The five-door crossover SUV has grown in size, gaining 60mm in height and 130mm in length. This gives more interior space, adding just under 30mm of additional width in the shoulder and elbow area, while rear passengers get 25mm of extra space.

The car features a completely new powertrain and is available in two variants which mirror the new MINI Electric. The Countryman E will cost £41,500 and uses a 64.7 kWh battery which provides up to 287 miles of electric range. It uses a 201bhp motor propelling it from 0-62mph in 8.6 seconds.

The £46,600 Countryman SE ALL4 uses the same battery but has two electric motors, giving a total 308bhp and all-wheel drive. The 0 to 62mph time is 5.6 seconds and the electric range is 269 miles. Both models have 22kW AC charging available as an option and 130 kW DC charging as standard.

Three new trim levels will be available – Classic, Exclusive and Sport, and all feature the same circular OLED screen as the hatchback.
