Leaking low-res photos seems to be an unfortunate inevitability of car launches. As you can guess that’s happened with the highly anticipated New Countryman. Several poor quality images of the new crossover were leaked on Instagram late yesterday giving the world its first view of official photos of the all new Electric MINI Countryman.

What these photos show is the more upright yet minimal look of the new U25 Countryman. Also seen here is the all new interior which differs in design from the forthcoming MINI Cooper Electric that we previewed last month.

But these poor quality images are just a glimpse of what we will have for you when both the new MINI Countryman and MINI Cooper Electric launch at 5:01 AM est. We will have an in-depth look at both cars and our own hands-on first impressions followed by exclusive video walk-throughs.
