Mini has unveiled the highly-anticipated Aceman EV, which will compete in the thriving subcompact SUV segment. The all-new electric Aceman sits between the Cooper Hardtop and the Countryman SUV, completing the brand’s lineup.

However, unlike its siblings, the newly unveiled crossover will only feature electric powertrains and no petrol engines.

Aceman EV: Powertrain

As per press release, the all-electric Aceman will be available in two models: E and SE. 

Equipped with an 181hp electric motor, the E model generates 290Nm of torque. Moreover, powered by a 42.5-kWh battery, it hits 100 kmph in 7.9 seconds and achieves a max speed of 160 kmph. In the WLTP test cycle, the E variant’s battery delivers a range of 310km, ensuring ample driving distance.

The Aceman SE, with its 215hp and 330Nm motor, accelerates from 0-100 kmph in 7.1 seconds, reaching a top speed of 170 kmph. Additionally, it features a larger 54.2-kWh battery that offers an extended range of 405km.

Furthermore, the E and SE support 75 kW and 95 kW fast charging, respectively. It allows the battery to charge from 10% to 80% in just under 30 minutes.

Aceman EV: Design and Dimensions

The Aceman draws inspiration from the Countryman, exhibiting a boxier profile and defined wheel arches. The front features rhombus-shaped headlights, while the rear has a similar set of customizable LED taillights. Moreover, in order to indicate its all-electric powertrain, the automaker blanked off the front grille.

With 4,075 mm length, 1,754 mm width, and 1,495 mm height, the Aceman exceeds the Cooper’s size but falls short of the Countryman. For reference, it’s only 20 mm longer than a Renault Clio hatchback but 44 mm narrower. However, it’s a little taller (50mm) than the hatch.
