New MINI Countryman To Be Offered As Hybrid

According to Carscoops:
. . . The most interesting addition to the range though will be the plug-in hybrid version, which according to fresh reports, will combine a three-cylinder 1.5-litre petrol engine with an electric motor powering the rear axle. BMW (and therefore Mini) will use their expertise gained from the i model series in this powertrain. Power is expected to reach a combined 240hp, with 136hp from the petrol and another 102hp from the rear-mounted electric motor.

The official debut is expected in October, during the Paris Motor Show, with the JCW and PHEV versions to follow shortly after.
