MINI USA Prices the Countryman Hybrid

Drum roll please. The highly anticipated MINI Countryman Hybrid has a price for the US market: $36,800. That puts the hybrid just below the JCW Countryman but above every other Countryman.

The base MSRP of $36,800 (plus $850 D&H) is just part of the story. Depending on customers’ income tax situations, they may be able to receive a $4000 federal income tax credit for purchasing a new plug-in hybrid, which would bring the effective net cost down to $32,800. This can decrease even further for customers in certain states where additional incentives are available.

The Countryman Hybrid is also a performance powerhouse with a 0-60 time of 6.7 seconds – .3 under the Cooper S.

The 2018 MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 is extremely well equipped as standard. Although the standard content is similar to that of a conventional Cooper S Countryman or Cooper S Countryman ALL4, there are several key differences due to the PHEV’s unique technology.

  • 6-speed Automatic Transmission
  • LED Headlights with Cornering Lights and LED Fog Lights
  • 18″ Pair Spoke silver wheels
  • Heated Sport Seats with Leatherette
  • Comfort Access keyless entry
  • 6.5” Visual Boost screen w/MINI Connected
  • Enhanced Bluetooth w/audio streaming dual
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Rain-sensing windshield wipers and automatic headlights
  • Split-folding (but not sliding) rear seats
  • MINI Driving Modes
  • MINI Excitement Package

What about the manual transmission? As we expected this is the first MINI ever to not be offered with a manual transmission.

The Countryman Hybrid will begin production in June and should hit US showrooms in the middle of July.

  • Seems like a no-brainer vs a Cooper S if automatic is acceptable. A few hundred dollars more initial cost, but significantly cheaper to fuel (especially if you have a 110v plug available), faster, and cheaper to maintain (less frequent brake replacement).

  • MKDenver

    Seems odd that the panorama roof would be an option for the hybrid, but std for all other ALL4s.

  • Any word when they will start taking orders or when the MINI Usa site will have the configurator available?
