Is the hybrid MINI Cooper real or just a rumor? It’s real – and the MINI Countryman plug-in hybrid excels at the fun and agility that earns every MINI its name.
Punching Above Its Weight
The MINI Countryman plug-in hybrid isn’t just a hybrid version of what you already know. It’s chock full of advanced technology. The combined system power of electric and gas-powered engines reaches 221 hp, and it punches well above its weight at 284 lb-ft of torque. It also boasts an eALL4 all-wheel drive system that keeps the MINI hybrid incredibly quick and nimble.
Getting the Hybrid Right
The electric mode is perfect for city driving and running errands. It produces zero emissions, helping you stay environmentally responsible on a daily basis while also saving a ton on fuel costs.
For longer drives, you can recharge the battery as you drive by switching to gas, and then rely on hybrid mode (using both engines) for an extra kick in performance. The combined range is 270 miles, and the combined mileage is 65 MPGe, which are both fantastic stats.
Personality and Practicality
As a hybrid MINI Cooper, the exterior conveys a fun personality and quick performance. The interior is a balance of beautiful and clever design. A number of features come standard, such as rear park distance control, an ultrasonic sensor that helps you parallel park and avoid hitting objects as you reverse.
Combined with the rear view camera, it keeps you safe and makes parallel parking a breeze. Features like keyless comfort access and a hands-free rear door are designed to help you go about your day with less stress.
If this all weren’t enough, owners are eligible for up to $4,000 in tax credits, making ownership extremely reasonable.
