Munich. On its way to series production, the new
model currently must prove itself under extremely high temperatures on
sandy desert roads.With an length of 4,075 mm, a width of 1,754 mm and
a height of 1,495 mm, the MINI Aceman occupies the position between
the MINI Cooper and the MINI Countryman. The third stand-alone model
in the new all-electric MINI family is equipped with four doors and a
large tailgate. Its interior can accommodate five passengers.
“The all-electric MINI Aceman opens new opportunities for customers
who want a smaller crossover than our successful MINI Countryman. The
consistent electrification of our product portfolio makes a clear
statement about the future of the MINI brand,” says Stefanie Wurst,
head of MINI.
Tested under extreme conditions.
After the MINI Aceman has already successfully completed tests at the
Arctic Circle, the crossover model is completing final testing in the
desert in strong sunlight and heat. In addition to classic features
such as driving dynamics and driving comfort, the test team is
focusing on the demanding aspects of an electric vehicle. For this
purpose, the air conditioning, charging and cooling of the battery,
drive and control devices are intensively tested at up to 50° Celsius
in dusty desert sand.
Fully electric and efficient.
The new MINI Aceman will only be available fully electric. Its
battery size is 54.2 kWh. Thanks to the purely electric drive concept,
the agile MINI crossover takes up little space on the road and offers
a high level of comfort and versatility. The design of the newly
developed model is in line with the brand’s basic principle: plenty of
interior space with the smallest possible external dimensions, agile
driving characteristics and efficiency. Behind this is the functional
two-box design with short overhangs. This creates maximum space for
five passengers and luggage on a minimal floor space.
