BMW releases pricing and specs for plug-in hybrid electric Mini in Australia | The Driven

Australian drivers now have another electrified vehicle option to choose from – the newly released plug-in hybrid (PHEV) version of the Mini Countryman.

Prices and availability for the Mini Countryman PHEV were released on Thursday by BMW Australia, which has been true to its word that it would release the low emissions version of the iconic Mini in the second quarter of 2019.

When we first reported on the Countryman Mini PHEV, we guessed that it would cost somewhere between $A53,900 and $A59,900,  And we weren’t wrong – the price will start at $57,000 before on road costs and extras.

This is pretty reasonable pricing from Mini, whose 2018 4X4 Mini Clubman with 170kW power retails for a very similar price at $A57,800 according to Car Sales.

The car is available to test drive in BMW show-rooms and will feature a 7.6kWh of li-ion battery packs that will deliver up to 40km of zero emissions driving.
