The PHEV Mini Clubman is slated to get the same powertrain as the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer:
- Plug in version will likely feature a a 1.5-liter three-cylinder turbocharged (borrowed from the BMW i8) engine with a “high-performance” electric motor (likely borrowed from the BMW i3) and a lithium-ion battery.
- This setup will crank out somewhere in the neighborhood of 190 hp, which will propel the production vehicle from 0 to 60 mph in 7 seconds.
- Top speed will be approximately 125 mph.
- We suspect that the Mini Clubman PHEV will have 15 to 20 miles of electric-only range, which isn’t brag worthy, but the fact that it will have both BMW i8 and BMW i3 bits within is something we’re sure future Mini Clubman PHEV owners will be thrilled to know.
