Mini is taking the urban-runabout philosophy to its logical present-day conclusion with the reveal of the electrified next-generation Cooper Hardtop and Countryman. (Well, maybe it’s taking that philosophy to its logical conclusion.) Mini hasn’t confirmed that it will sell the electric Cooper Hardtop stateside yet, and while the Countryman will be available in the U.S., its specs for the market are unconfirmed. Mini is, however, still committed to being all-electric by 2030.

Cooper Hardtop

While its wheelbase and track width have grown slightly over the previous generation, the two-door Cooper Hardtop hatchback is still immediately recognizable as the heart and soul of the brand. Cleaner exterior styling that includes trimless wheel arches and flush-mounted door handles and rear lighting elements is said to make the car more aerodynamic.

Mini has announced two battery capacities for the new Cooper. The pack in the base Cooper E can store 40.7 kilowatt-hours, while the pack in the Cooper SE can store 54.2 kWh. Paired with a 184-horsepower electric motor, the E’s pack is rated at 190 miles of range by European regulators, though U.S. testing procedures typically return lower estimates. The SE’s pack, paired with a 218-hp motor, is said to be good for 250 miles; the same disclaimer applies. Mini quotes a 0-62 mph time of 7.3 seconds for the E and 6.7 seconds for the SE. There will be a John Cooper Works version of the electric Mini, but the company isn’t quoting any powertrain specs for that one just yet.

The minimalist exterior aesthetic carries over inside the new Cooper, which concentrates all controls onto the steering wheel and the toggle-switch bar below the large, round central display. That display functions as both the gauge cluster and infotainment screen. An optional head-up display keeps vital information in the driver’s line of vision. The Cooper Hardtop comes upholstered in a fabric made from recycled polyester as well as synthetic leather.

Countryman

With a similarly refined shape, the new Countryman relies much more on proportions for its attitude than the outgoing car did, with its bulging fender flares and hood. The 2025 Countryman is nearly 5 inches longer, almost 4 inches taller and 0.9 inch wider than its predecessor, but Mini claims to have reduced the Countryman’s coefficient of drag from 0.31 to 0.26. A 0.9-inch increase in wheelbase should pay off in slightly more legroom for occupants.

As with the Cooper, Mini has announced two powertrains for the Countryman. The company hasn’t specified battery sizes yet but says the Countryman E will have a 204-hp motor and a range of 287 miles. The all-wheel-drive SE All4 will have two motors combining for 313 hp that will deplete the battery in 269 miles. Acceleration is quoted at 8.6 seconds to 62 mph for the E and 5.6 for the SE. Mini says both Countryman powertrains and both of the Hardtop’s will be able to charge from 10% to 80% in less than half an hour.

While complete details on the U.S.-market Minis are yet to be released, Mini has said its new electric family will offer such driver aids as adaptive cruise control, active lane keep assist and self-parking. A Level 2 autonomous driving system allowing for low-speed hands-free driving will be available in Europe, but it remains to be seen what sort of capability Mini will approve for America’s separate regulations. We’ll be watching for more on the new generation of electrified Minis, but based on what we know so far, it seems there’s a lot to look forward to.
