The Electrifying Debut of the 2024 Mini Countryman EV in North America
Prepare to be dazzled as the fully electric 2024 Mini Countryman steps onto American soil for the first time. With initial deliveries earmarked for late next year, the third-generation Countryman is bound to electrify U.S. roadways and redefine urban mobility.
Unveiling During a Global Eco-Conscious Event
Originally premiered at the IAA Mobility showcase in Munich, Germany, the vehicle recently made headlines during Climate Week NYC. The all-new Countryman took center stage at an exclusive panel called "Driving Forward: The Transformation of Future Mobility," hosted by Mini's Urban-X technology startup platform at Newlab in Brooklyn Navy Yard.
Versions Available for the American Market
The company remained tight-lipped in the press releases regarding the variants slated for the U.S. However, insiders from the European launch confirmed two primary models will be manufactured in Germany: the entry-level Countryman E with an impressive WLTP-rated range of 287 miles, and the more robust Countryman SE ALL4 that boasts a range of 269 miles on a single charge.
Unpacking the European Specs
For the European customer base, the base Countryman E features a front-mounted electric motor outputting 201 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. It also houses a 54-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery. On the other hand, the Countryman SE ALL4 gets a more substantial 64-kWh battery and dual electric motors, contributing to a combined output of 308 horsepower and 364 lb-ft of torque.
Charging Made Effortless
Irrespective of the model you opt for, the charging capabilities of the Mini Countryman are versatile. You can power up the battery via an AC source at a rate of up to 22 kilowatts or employ a DC source for a faster charge, reaching up to 130 kW.
Sizing Up the New Mini Countryman
Dimensions-wise, the new Mini Countryman's imposing size makes it a viable competitor to the Volvo XC40 Recharge. Measuring 174.5 inches in length, 72.5 inches in width, and 65.1 inches in height, it comes close to the Volvo XC40 Recharge's dimensions of 174.2 inches long, 73.3 inches wide, and 65 inches tall.
