The Mini Countryman is amazing with size and design. This icnonic small size car is still very known for its design and the brand has been able to keep the loyal customers through the years. The exterior and interior have the same feeling as years ago and the retro feeling is somehow very appealing.
This new hybrid Mini, Mini Countryman Cooper SE All4 Business, has a driving range for about 40 kilometers and the electric power consumption is 13,2-14 kWh/100 km combined. Fuel consumption combined is about 2,1-2,3 litres per 100 kilometers. Carbon emissions are between 49-52 g per one kilometer.
The lithium batteries are under the rear seats, and somehow you can still find good space for luggages in this plug-in-car. It is calculated that the space is between 405 – 1274 litres if you turn the seats down.
This could be a very good basic car for small families with not that much long-distance driving. You can easily have your weekend items with you and drive economically. And the electric driving range might be enough for the daily working distances.
The BMW Group, which owns the Mini brand, has also announced that it is in talks to start a battery-electric-car Mini vehicles production in China with its co-operation partner Greal Wall Motor.
– In addition to production of the first battery electric MINI at the main plant in Oxford starting in 2019, this signals a further clear commitment to the electrified future of the MINI brand, the company says in the press release.
Last year 2017, China was MINI’s fourth-largest market, with around 35,000 units delivered.
