The Slow Rollout of the Countryman Hybrid is Hurting MINI USA

The MINI Countryman Hybrid is a huge vehicle for MINI and no one can buy them. That’s what we’re hearing from dealers across North America. In our quick survey we’ve heard stories from dealers who have had as much as a dozen Countryman PHEVs on order since May of earlier this year.

The issue of course is that these dealers are dying for a hit vehicle in the US and this hybrid could be that car. Yet MINI dealers can’t get them on lots let along sell them to customers.

So that begs the question – are you waiting for then Countryman PHEV? Are you waiting to test drive one? Or are you just waiting for the full electric MINI?
