What drivers should know about MINI's electric vehicle lineup

MINI has been showing what small cars can do when given batteries and an electric motor since the 2018 introduction of the MINI Countryman SE, the brand’s first plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). With plans to stop selling gas cars by 2030, the Oxford brand will be expanding its lineup from the MINI Cooper SE introduced in 2022 to two additional models by 2025, with a focus on style and hot hatch credentials.


In keeping MINIs…mini, the brand’s lineup shares the BMW UKL2 platform with other small-front wheel drive BMW’s such as the X1 and X2. Adding a dose of MINI flair, the latest generation of electric MINIs will be retaining their “go-kart feeling” including features like an AI dog named Spike powering the round central infotainment display and sustainable materials throughout the cabin.

MINI Cooper Electric

Introduced in 2020 as the brand’s first fully electric model, the MINI Cooper Electric takes the brand’s cult-classic Cooper and swaps its inline-3 motor for a 32.6 kWh lithium-ion battery. While its low weight of 3000 lbs keeps the go-kart feeling drivers expect, it's very much a city car with only about 110 miles of range. For 2025, the new generation of electric Coopers will receive two battery options that allow for over 200 miles of range.

MINI Countryman Electric

All-new for 2024, the MINI Countryman Electric gives owners a 66.5 kWh battery battery to power either the front-wheels or all-wheels for a range up to 245 miles. Whether drivers are interested in the efficient front-wheel drive E or the sport 308 horsepower SE All4, MINI enthusiasts are being treated to the brand’s all electric future in their most popular.

MINI plug-in hybrids

MINI Countryman PHEV

Introduced in 2018 for the vehicle’s 2nd generation, the Countryman PHEV was MINI’s first plug-in hybrid  utilizing the brand’s 1.5 liter inline-3 and a 7.6 kWh battery good for 12 miles of all electric range. With its 2020 refresh, that battery was increased to 10 kWh, giving the compact crossover an increased 18 miles of range. As a plug-in hybrid, the Countryman PHEV provides a 3.7 kW Level 2 charging port.
