So while we're waiting on news around the Mini EV, I wanted to share some information that's come out regarding the latest Mini hybrid. It looks like early reviews of the 2018 hybrid Countryman are less than stellar and for a couple of noted reasons. The test models price of $40K is approximately $3,600 more than the Volt and $9,700 more that the Prius Prime. It delivers a measly 12 miles of all electric range, and requires a 2-3 hours of charge time. Lastly its combined fuel economy is only 27 MPG, which is pretty low in comparison to other PHEVs on the market already. Hopefully we see vast improvements in the fully electrified version, both in price and performance.
