Mini is set to debut their latest electric car, the largest Mini ever, at the upcoming Climate Week NYC event in New York City. This new electric car, known as the Mini Countryman, is a key part of Mini’s plan to become an all-electric brand by 2030. The goal is to offer a popular and mainstream electric crossover that appeals to a wide range of consumers.
One of the key improvements in the new Mini Countryman is the fixing of the rear turn indicator design, which caused confusion in the previous model. The new design ensures that the turn signal arrows correctly indicate the intended direction. The interior of the Mini Countryman is also a highlight, featuring a minimalist and comfortable design with the use of novel materials.
The dashboard is particularly striking, with a round OLED display and colorful patterns that vary according to the drive mode. The use of sustainable, coarse-weave fabrics in the interior adds a unique touch to the overall design. Mini describes the design as “expressive minimalism with character.”
In terms of exterior design, opinions are divided. While some angles showcase a clean and modern update to classic Mini elements, others find the front design to be less appealing. The headlights have been redesigned to give the car a more aggressive look, while the grille features a playful pattern-based design.
Details about the specs of the Mini Countryman are not provided in the source article, but it is expected to offer a spacious and roomy interior, thanks to its boxy shape. Overall, the Mini Countryman aims to offer a compelling electric crossover option for consumers looking to make the switch to electric vehicles.
