Mini's 2025 Countryman SE ALL4: A refined, semi-rugged electric vehicle
Mini's top-tier Countryman SE ALL4 features dual electric motors, delivering 313 hp and 364 lb-ft of torque.
Mini's 2025 Countryman made its debut at the IAA Mobility Show in Munich in September, and last month, it offered a glimpse of the new model in New York City. Now, the car manufacturer has unveiled the highly anticipated Countryman SE ALL4 in all its glory. This article explores the key features of this electric SUV, though the exact release date for customers remains undisclosed.
Driving on BMW's UKL Architecture: The 2025 Countryman family is built upon the BMW Group's UKL architecture, shared with models like the BMW X1/iX1 and the BMW 2-Series Active Tourer. Entry-level variants feature a single electric motor producing 201 hp and 184 lb-ft (250 Nm) of torque. However, the SE ALL4 version stands out, described by Mini as a "versatile adventurer" and a "reliable companion for exploring new paths." This model appears to be the most well-rounded of the electric Minis.
A Powerful All-Wheel-Drive Setup: The Countryman SE ALL4 is powered by two electric motors, delivering a combined 313 hp and 364 lb-ft (494 Nm) of torque. These motors provide the EV with all-wheel drive capability, enabling a 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) acceleration time of 5.6 seconds and a top speed of 180 km/h (112 mph). A 66.45 kWh battery pack supports 130 kW DC charging, allowing the battery to be charged from 10% to 80% in less than 30 minutes.
Distinctive Design for Adventurous Appeal: The SE ALL4's exterior design distinguishes it from the base Countryman E, reflecting a more rugged and capable personality. Notable changes include a front skid plate, even if more for aesthetics than practicality, and standard 20-inch wheels with bronze-colored spokes. Distinctive badging further sets it apart, while a unique diffuser and black bumper enhance its adventurous look.
Revamped Interior with Modern Touches: Both the Countryman E and Countryman SE ALL4 share the same interior. A standout feature is the round 9.4-inch OLED display that houses all the infotainment systems. Mini has also given the new car's dashboard, door panels, and center console a modern overhaul, maintaining its retro charm while adding a contemporary touch.
As anticipation builds for the release of the Countryman SE ALL4, it's evident that Mini's electric adventure is set to offer a dynamic and appealing driving experience, with a design that reflects its adventurous spirit.
