As part of BMW Group’s electrification strategy, its British luxury subsidiary Mini has been working on a number of all-electric vehicles, including the upcoming Aceman electric crossover. The Mini Aceman EV is scheduled to go on sale in 2025. When launched, it will be positioned between the three-door Cooper EV hatchback and the larger Countryman EV, which is scheduled to go on sale in February 2024. Prior to this, Mini BMW Blog revealed the technical specifications of the Aceman EV.
As the Mini Countryman will become larger than the outgoing model, it will leave a gap in the British automaker’s lineup that the Aceman EV will fill. This will follow the concept car previewed last year using the same nomenclature. Unlike the Countryman and Cooper, the upcoming Mini Aceman EV will be sold as an all-electric model. Mini has hinted that all three EVs will play a key role in the brand’s electrification strategy, as the automaker aims to go all-electric by 2030.

Talking about the revealed specifications, the Mini Aceman will be available in two trim options: E and SE. The E will be the base model and will feature a single front-axle-mounted electric motor that will be paired to a 40-kWh battery pack. The powertrain will produce a peak power of 181 horsepower and provide a range of up to 300 kilometers on a single charge. Higher trims of the SE will pump out a maximum of 215 hp thanks to a larger 54 kWh battery pack and can run 400 km on a single charge. Interestingly, the Countryman EV will also feature the same battery pack in its more premium SE.
Specifications are the same as those of the new Mini Cooper EV hatchback. It’s a logical move, as the BMW Group intends to position the Aceman EV as a crossover alternative to the electric hatchback.
The dimensions of the Mini Aceman EV are reported to be 4,075mm long and 1,495mm high. It has a wheelbase of 2,605 millimeters, the report says.
