MINI To Put Its 2017 Mini Cooper E Countryman All4 At Frankfurt Motor Show 2017
In the previous year, BMW Boss Harald Krüger had promised an all-electric by 2019, and at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show 2017 will get to see the latest concept car, giving us an opportunity of previewing the beast!
It’s not the first time that Mini has been working on electrical drivetrains, with its first E model Mini E having 600 units being produced in 2008 as a part of field trial study.
However, it took them until this year for Mini to launch the first plug-in hybrid vehicle, the 2017 Mini Cooper E Countryman All4.
The production of the car was headed by the BMW‘s design boss Adrian van Hooydonk. The Mini Cooper E Countryman puts an entirely new spin to the company’s classic styling cues, such as yellow and silver contrasting colour scheme, a closed grille in its traditional hexagonal shape as well as an aerodynamic front apron that has faux air intakes, which are also closed.
The Mini Cooper E Countryman has dark coloured 19-inch wheels that are in an asymmetrical design apart from low-drag aerodynamic inserts that have been developed using a 3D printer.
The car’s rear end is marked out by its LED taillights so that each of them forms a half of the Union Jack, apart from more aerodynamic air deflectors and a fibreglass diffuser.
The Mini Cooper E Countryman has been painted in a silver reflective finish, and for adding contrast, features a mixture of gloss surfaces and matte apart from yellow accents in the side skirts and the roof, front grille, and mirror.
Although, there hasn’t been any update by Mini regarding the tech specs of its upcoming 2019 Production EV and no peek at the interior as well.
