GOING THE EXTRA MILE.
Get set to discover how far this car can take you on electric energy. The new MINI Countryman plug-in hybrid can comfortably tackle short haul trips in a single charge – whether it’s work and back or a weekend shopping spree – thanks to its electric range of 40 kilometres. And it’s just as prepared for long-haul expeditions. Make the most of the conventional combustion engine to take your total range up to 498 kilometres.
CHARGING AT HOME OR ON THE GO.
Charging your MINI Countryman plug-in hybrid is simple. Simply plug in to a 10A socket using the supplied cable. It’s as easy as plugging in your latest tech gadget.
This MINI was made for tackling new terrain, while emitting less. Sipping on fuel, while feasting on adventure. With three modes to choose from, you can pick a driving style to suit your mood. Switch between: AUTO eDrive, MAX eDrive or Save Battery. Let’s find out which is the one for you.
AUTO EDRIVE MODE.
A driving setting that automatically does all the smart stuff for you? Count us in. Auto eDrive Mode is the default setting when you switch on your MINI Countryman plug-in hybrid. It works out the most efficient combination of electric motor and petrol engine, depending on your speed, acceleration and battery status.
MAX EDRIVE MODE.
Opt for efficiency. Make the most of your electric energy. In MAX eDrive mode, you can drive a short haul journey without consuming a single drop of fuel. And if you want to take the power to the next level, you can. The petrol engine switches on effortlessly with a kick-down of the accelerator.
SAVE BATTERY MODE.
Who is into creating their own energy? Toggle into the Save Battery mode when you’re running low on electric power and the petrol engine will charge the battery (or keep it stable). When you’re driving in Save Battery mode, the petrol engine is doing all the work, so you can switch back to electric driving whenever you’re ready.
