Home / Social media / News / The 2024 All-Electric MINI Cooper Countryman is almost here, and it's looking rather cool.


As the trend towards eco-friendly and sustainable living continues to grow, MINI is almost ready to add its latest offering to the mix with the all-electric MINI Countryman – a spacious adventurer with style, comfort, and eco-friendliness in one impressive package. We’re very keen to see it without all the camouflage hiding its lines and body styling. The MINI Countryman has been a hit with drivers since its first generation, offering a versatile interior with a sliding and folding rear seat that can flexibly expand the trunk from 370 litres to up to 1,170 litres. And now, with the newest generation, MINI is taking things a step further with their first all-electric, locally emission-free model. The new MINI Countryman E delivers an impressive 140 kW, while the MINI Countryman SE ALL4 is the automaker’s first all-wheel drive, a fully-electric car offering two highly integrated drive units on the front and rear axles that together generate an output of 230 kW with an added temporary boost. There’s a battery capacity of 64.7 kWh and it affords the new car an estimated range of around 450 km. MINI is not only focused on producing eco-friendly cars but also on making the production process as sustainable as possible, too. They’re expanding on-site e-component production capacity by eight production lines by 2024 and investing more than 800 million euros. The decarbonisation of production by replacing fossil fuels with hydrogen is the focus of what is already one of the most modern and sustainable automotive production facilities in the world.

MINI isn't just focusing on eco-friendliness under the bonnet but is also committed to the greatest possible environmental compatibility in production as well. By dispensing with all decorative elements in the exterior and interior and manufacturing the cast light-alloy wheels from up to 70 % secondary aluminium, MINI is significantly reducing CO2 emissions compared with conventional manufacturing processes. The surfaces of the dashboards, steering wheel, vehicle headliner, floor, and floor mats are made from recycled polyester obtained from PET bottles and carpet remnants, further reducing CO2 emissions along the value chain by up to 85 %. MINI's sustainable strategy for energy generation and consumption is also impressive, at the BMW Group's "green plant" in Leipzig, there are four wind turbines with a height of 190 meters on the factory premises, generating more than 20 GWh of electricity from wind energy per year. In the Battery Farm, up to 700 second-life high-voltage batteries from BMW i3 vehicles are used to store energy. By storing the energy on the premises, local energy management can be optimised and the electrical grid kept stable. Not only is the all-electric MINI Countryman is a good-looking all-rounder that combines the brand's hallmark design and driving experience, but its creation ensured a commitment to sustainability and eco-friendliness by MINI and so the MINI Countryman represents a significant step forward in BMW’s efforts towards a creating cleaner and greener, sustainable future.
