Our spy photographers have caught the 2025 MINI Countryman SE ALL4 in Los Angeles, California without any camouflage, giving us the best look yet at the next-generation Countryman EV. It appears the undisguised Countryman was smiling for its own cameras as it was likely undergoing a photoshoot. Set to arrive in the U.S. as a 2025 model year, production of the new Countryman starts this year in Germany at a BMW plant. This will be the first MINI model to be built in Germany.
The MINI Countryman is the brand’s biggest model and the electric variant will be available in two trim levels. The single-motor “E” model will feature 188 horsepower, while the SE ALL4, seen here, will sport 308 hp from its dual-motor, all-wheel-drive setup. The electric Countryman will share some of its components with the BMW iX1, which is not heading to the U.S. Look for a 64.8-kWh battery pack to power both models, delivering what will likely be around 230 miles of driving range according to EPA estimates.
Based on the spy photos, however, we can see the Countryman features an all-new front end with slightly more aggressive styling. New doors, handles, and an updated c-pillar can be seen on the side, while the rear has been overhauled to give it a more modern appearance.
Look for the 2025 MINI Countryman to make its official debut later this year.
