A Mini hybrid? Seems everything’s going hybrid these days… Yep. But don’t forget Mini is part of the BMW group, responsible for two of the best hybrids on sale, the brilliant i3 and i8. This Mini Countryman Cooper S E ALL4 effectively has a detuned version of the BMW i8’s setup, but operating the other way round: a petrol engine driving the front wheels, an electric motor powering on the rear wheels. Drive is through a six-speed automatic gearbox, though without standard steering paddles. The whole setup lives underneath the BMW 225xe people carrier, too. The i8 is a supercar! How detuned is its drivetrain here?
