China is an issue – The future of Mini holds some surprises

The Countryman is a BMW X1
A second model – Mini intends to present it at the IAA Mobility in Munich in the fall – is only evolutionarily evolving in design: the Countryman. However, the compact SUV (3rd generation) grows from 4.30 to 4.42 meters, is based on the BMW X1 platform and is built in Leipzig. What is new is that the Countryman will no longer be available as a plug-in hybrid, only as a petrol, diesel and fully electric version. The 5th generation of the BMW eDrive system is adopted, including the 62.4 kWh battery. In the iX1, the capacity is enough for almost 440 kilometers. The Countryman shouldn’t have much less.
