In production since 1959, Mini Cooper is celebrating its 60th birthday, which comes at a major milestone; the British auto manufacturer has reached the 10 million vehicles sales mark.

To celebrate the occasion, a special anniversary model from the Mini Plant Oxford is being offered with designs and equipment features that harken back to the original Mini.

The 2019 Mini Cooper S E Countryman, designated ALL4 – because of its all 4-wheel drive – has been given a new-generation high-voltage battery that doesn’t in any way alter the car’s dimensions. The Lithium-ion battery’s gross energy capacity has been increased from 7.7 to 10.0 kWh. Positioned under the rear seat to save space, the updated battery can be fully recharged in about five hours from a standard wall socket, or in three hours and fifteen minutes from a charger.

The 2019 model has an estimated total gas and an electric range of about 270 miles, though it’s not yet clear how that will change with the upgraded battery. The EPA-Estimated Electric Only Driving Range is “up to 12 miles,” and the car has been given a 65 MPGe by the EPA. Meanwhile, BMW, which is the Mini Cooper’s parent company, says the new battery increases the all-electric range to 35 miles.

The hybrid system in the new Mini Cooper S E Countryman ALL4’s hybrid system uses a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder gasoline engine and an electric motor to generate a combined horsepower of 221 hp and 284 lb-ft of torque. The 87 hp e-motor is located on the rear axle, and offers hybrid-specific all-wheel-drive system power to the front or rear wheels as necessary. The ALL4 powers from 0 to 62 mph in 6.7 seconds. 

The car has 3 driving modes:

• ELECTRIC MODE : Ideal for city driving, the electric-only mode lets you cover short distances with zero emissions, using the power stored in the lithium-ion battery.

• HYBRID MODE: When your journey takes you outside city limits, the gasoline engine and electric motor work together smoothly and effectively to extend your total range up to 270 miles (based on EPA estimates).  

SAVE BATTERY MODE: For longer excursions, the save battery mode smartly uses the power generated by the gasoline engine to partially recharge the battery and keep it at a 90% charge, so you can go where your adventures lead, and switch back to electric mode when you get there. 

Standard features include: a Rear-View Camera, Rear Park Distance Control, Keyless Entry, a Hands-Free Rear Door, Split-Folding Rear Seats and a 6.5” high-resolution display that provides key motoring data, entertainment, and hands-free communication with Bluetooth. Options include an 8.8-inch touchscreen display, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, navigation, wireless device charging, and a Harman Kardon premium audio system.

The Countryman Hybrid Plug-In comes in Classic, Signature, and Iconic trim levels. Options include heated front seats, sport seats, several sport steering wheel designs, and piano black or metal trims. Most of these are standalone options.

Just like all the other MINIs, the Countryman Hybrid Plug-in offers a cute and cheerful exterior design, a taller ride height, decent cargo rails, and a sporty body. The only indication this isn’t a standard Mini is a special badge over the charging port. Otherwise, you won’t know it’s a PHEV.

Starting MSRP is $36,900. The 2019 Mini Cooper SE Countryman Plug-In Hybrid is eligible for a $4,000 Federal tax credit.

Competitors include small hybrids and electric vehicles such as the Toyota Prius, Chevrolet Bolt, Nissan Leaf, and Hyundai Ioniq.
