The MINI Cooper SE Countryman is the brand’s first plug-in hybrid, giving those who crave the quirkiness of a Mini a fuel-efficient and environmentally-friendly option. Much of a Mini’s appeal is in that quirky style, so Mini doesn’t mess with how its plug-in looks. It easily blends in with the rest of the lineup, which will make purists happy. The story is similar inside, where this is first and foremost a Mini.
It is still a hybrid, however, so you’ll get better fuel economy than you will with the rest of the Countryman lineup along with the savings that come from being able to plug in and charge. While charging stations were once hard to find, they’re becoming commonplace and easy to work into your everyday lifestyle. Let’s take a closer look at the 2019 Mini Cooper SE Countryman ALL4 PHEV and see if it’s the plug-in hybrid for you.
