Mini has released some new info and a batch of photos of the third-generation Mini Countryman SUV. The 2025 Countryman will be available in gas, hybrid and electric versions, but today Mini has released more info about the latter.
What we see here are camouflaged prototypes of the 2025 Countryman. The electric Countryman will get some unique styling details compared to the gas and hybrid versions, but the camouflage hides most of the small styling details. We don’t have any photos of the interior yet, but Mini says that many of its surfaces are made of recycled polyester obtained from PET bottles and carpet remnants.
The next-generation Countryman will grow a bit, since it measures 174.3 inches long, compared to 169.8 inches for the current model. It’s also a bit taller at 63.5 inches compared to 61.3 inches.
The Countryman EV will be available with two powertrains. A single-motor version in the Countryman E will be powered by a single 191 horsepower motor that powers the front wheels. The Countryman SE ALL4 will be powered by a dual motor, all-wheel drive system with 313 horsepower. A 64.7-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery powers the electric Countryman. Mini estimates that it will have a driving range around 280 miles on Europe’s WLTP cycle. Here in the US, the EPA estimate will be lower.
Production of the next-generation Mini Countryman is slated to begin in November at BMW Group Plant Leipzig in Germany.
