The all-electric 2025 Mini Countryman arrives with a revised design. The front features an octagonal grille and restyled headlights with new signature LED DRLs. The taillights have been revised along with the tailgate. The cabin shares several of its features with the Mini Cooper including the 9.5-inch round OLED infotainment display. The toggle switches continue for the handbrake button, turn-key starter, drive mode selector and audio-control dial placed under the screen. The instrument console has been done away with in favour of the head-up display (HUD) in a new minimalist look to the cabin. 

 

The new Mini Countryman E will be powered by an electric motor that develops 201 bhp and 250 Nm of peak torque. The electric SUV can sprint from 0-100 kmph in 8.6 seconds. There is also the more powerful Countryman ALL4 that packs 309 bhp and 494 Nm from its dual-motor setup. Both versions use a 66.45 kWh battery pack.
