Let us take you to the future. For it has just arrived in the magnificent shape of the MINI Countryman Plug-in Hybrid.
Unplug & play.
Zap to work electrically and escape the city on the weekends - courtesy of our all-new plug-in hybrid engine. With an electric range of up to 57 km and a total range of up to 500 km, there’s no limit to where the MINI Countryman Plug-in Hybrid can take you. About as good as the 6.8 seconds it takes to hit 100 km/h, we reckon. Sustainable driving just got fun.
The MINI Countryman Plug-In Hybrid is powered by a high-tech lithium-ion battery. Kept at its optimum operating temperature by an advanced cooling system, the battery excels in output and service life. You can recharge the battery using a conventional 230-volt household socket or a dedicated electric car charge point. You’ll find the charging port behind a flap on the front left side scuttle. An LED light ring on the charging port is charging up and indicates the different phases of the charging process.
Keep on rolling.
In electric mode, you can drive your MINI Countryman Plug-In Hybrid up to 57 km. That’s without any local CO2 emissions. Switching between eDrive and petrol drive is silky smooth and fully automated.
Charging your MINI couldn’t be easier. At home, you can simply plug it into any power socket with the standard charging cable that comes with your vehicle. While you’re on the road, you can charge your MINI at public charging stations using the MINI public charging cable. This cable is available as a MINI original accessory. Contact your MINI dealer for further information.
This is the default setting when you switch on your MINI. It determines the most efficient combination of the electric motor and petrol engine, depending on your speed, acceleration and battery status. AUTO eDrive Mode is divided into two phases. If the battery charging status is between 100% and 7%, you can drive at up to 80 km/h – without any local CO2 emissions and without using any fuel. At higher speeds or when conditions so require, the petrol engine comes on automatically. If the battery charge level drops below 7%, you can drive your MINI Countryman Plug-in Hybrid in purely electric mode with moderate acceleration at up to 20 km/h and with gentle acceleration or a constant speed of 55 km/h.
In MAX eDrive mode, you can treat yourself to pure electric driving at speeds of up to 125 km/h. Free of local CO2 emission and without consuming a single drop of fuel. If you want to go faster or accelerate harder, no problem. You can count on the petrol engine to switch on automatically with a kick-down of the gas pedal to give you the power you need.
Toggle into the Save Battery mode when the battery is running low. In this mode, the petrol engine charges the battery or keeps the charging status at 90%. When you’re driving in Save Battery mode, the petrol engine is doing all the work, so you can switch back to electric driving in urban areas.?
