MINI may be working on a new generation of Countryman, but there is another electric SUV in development as well. The electric SUV in question is a production version of the MINI Aceman concept that debuted some time ago, and will reportedly be ready for production in 2024.
From the circulating photos, the production version of the MINI Aceman has a slimmer design than the concept version. We can see this on the bumper, door handles, and small wheels. The Aceman also gets small ground clearance, short overhangs, door-mounted mirrors and MINI signature mirrors.
According to media reports, the 2024 Aceman will measure over 4 m, which makes it similar to the first generation Countryman. Therefore, many people have speculated that the new Countryman will be larger than 4.5 m, making it seem like a replacement for the retired MINI Clubman.
Just like the fully electric MINI Hatch, Aceman is also expected to use the same platform to offer electrification. Unfortunately there is no word yet on what powertrain will be used.
It’s too early to talk about specs anyway, but this model could get a dual electric motor with AWD system to compete with the smart #1.
The Mini Aceman is expected to debut in 2024, a year after Great Wall China’s MINI Hatch will debut next year.
