The soon-to-be-launched F60 MINI Cooper S E Countryman All4 has been spotted in Malaysia, with this covered unit being spotted at The Curve recently. Registration of interest for the brand’s first plug-in hybrid model is now open, although official pricing has yet to be revealed.

The covers on the car make it hard to confirm what equipment will be fitted on the Malaysian-spec Countryman PHEV, but we do see 19-inch MINI Yours Masterpiece alloy wheels on this particular car. Other items will likely include LED headlamps, 6.5-inch infotainment screen and Radio MINI Visual Boost system.

The Countryman PHEV is powered by a 1.5 litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine (134 hp and 220 Nm) that is mated to a six-speed Steptronic automatic transmission. A rear-mounted electric motor (87 hp and 165 Nm) is the electrification component here, and it draws power from a 7.6 kWh battery.

In total, the system has an output of 221 hp and 385 Nm of torque, which is enough to get the SUV from a rest to 100 km/h in just 6.8 seconds. Following European Union test cycle, the plug-in hybrid Countryman has a fuel consumption of as low as 2.1 l/100 km.

The new Cooper S E Countryman All4, when it is launched, will join existing, petrol-only models such as the Cooper Countryman, Cooper S Countryman and the more recent John Cooper Works Countryman. The current Countryman offerings range between RM239,888 and RM348,888.
