The new Countryman is due for release before the end of 2023 and will join the hatchback electric model which MINI has been selling for more than a year.
The brand recently announced a limited run of electric MINI Convertible models is also on the way.
Stefanie Wurst, head of MINI, said: “We are delighted to be able to hand over the first MINI "Made in Germany" to our customers in a CO2-neutral manner thanks to the plant's sustainable energy supply.
In this way, the new all-electric MINI Countryman demonstrates what the brand stands for: electrified go-kart feeling and a strong focus on a minimal environmental footprint.”
As the brand's largest model, the all-electric MINI Countryman leads a new MINI family into an era of electromobility which sees it on course to become fully-electric by 2030.
Further details of the new MINI EV are due to be released as the car enters production later in the year.
