Mini plans the Paceman as an electric crossover in 2024. According to Georg Kacher at Car Magazine, the “new” Paceman will come in a four-door model.
The Mini Paceman will compete with models like the Opel Mokka-e and the electric Puma from Ford. What might make the difference is that the Paceman will be available with all-wheel drive.
In terms of battery and range, the Paceman is claimed to surpass the Mokka-e. Kacher says the electric version of the Paceman has a 60 kWh battery with an estimated range of 400 kilometers.

Kacher further said that the Mini uses BMW’s fifth-generation electric drive that works without permanent magnets and rare earth metals.
This generation of electric drive has been installed in all new electric BMWs since the iX3, for example in the i4, iX and also in the upcoming i7. Kacher has not talked much about the performance of the electric drive.
But with two such motors for all-wheel drive, peak power would probably be very high. The front electric motor in the iX has an output of 190 kW and is classified as “M” in the construction kit.
Mini itself has announced that it will only sell electric vehicles by 2030.
