Mini has revealed the new all-electric Aceman

Mini has revealed the new all-electric Aceman, a mid-size crossover said by the brand to combine compact exterior dimensions with a creative use of interior space.

Available in two output levels – E and SE – and a choice of three well-specified trims – Classic, Exclusive and Sport – the new Mini Aceman is priced from €39,065 for the E, rising to €44,595 for the SE.

The entry-level Mini Aceman E hosts a high-voltage battery with a capacity of 42.5 kWh, offering up to 308km of electric range (WLTP ). A 135 kW/184 hp electric motor generates a torque of 290 Nm and accelerates the vehicle from 0 to 100km/h in 7.9 seconds.

With an increased output of 160 kW/218 hp, the Mini Aceman SE offers an increased range of 405km,thanks to a 54.2 kWh battery and sprints from 0 to 100km/h in 7.1 seconds with a maximum torque of 330Nm.

The Mini Aceman’s battery can be charged via 11 kW AC or DC charging. 75 kW DC charging is available on the Aceman E, while the Aceman SE is capable of up to 95 kW, enabling the battery to be charged from 10 to 80 percent in under 30 minutes, according to the brand. Measuring 4,070 mm in length, 1,754 mm in width and 1,514 mm in height, the Mini Aceman bridges the gap between the Cooper and the Countryman.

The Aceman is available in three distinctive and well-specified trims: Classic, Exclusive and Sport.

The Classic trim offers a reduced overall appearance, while highlighting key elements, such as the Mini wings logo finished in Vibrant Silver. The front grille is coated in high-gloss black, while the inner surfaces of the grille and bumper are finished in body colour. Three exterior paint finishes, including Nanuq White and Midnight Black, a Jet Black contrasting roof option and two wheel designs – with 17-inch as standard – offer customers a range of personalisation options.

Exclusive trim brings additional exterior design features, such as a Vibrant Silver front grille. A choice of six exterior paint colours can be specified, including all-new Indigo Sunset Blue and Rebel Red, while Glazed White and Multitone Blue roof colours are also offered with this trim level. Three wheel designs are available, with 18-inch offered as standard and 19-inch available optionally.

Models specified with Sport trim feature a distinctive front and rear design inspired by John Cooper Works (JCW ). The front grille – adorned with the JCW badge - the Mini wings logo and vehicle trims are finished in high-gloss black, while red/black bonnet stripes and a contrasting Chili Red roof nod to Mini’s racing heritage.

Eighteen-inch alloys come as standard with a 19-inch option also available. A rear spoiler equipped air blades further enhances the back portion of the vehicle.Like its siblings, Mini says the cockpit of the Aceman is centralised around three key design elements: the central 24 cm OLED display, re-imagined toggle bar and heated Vescin steering wheel.

The curved dashboard is covered with a recycled polyester textile material which extends into the door trims and features a two-tone design. Rounding off the cockpit are front seats made from full or half-Vescin depending on the specified trim level.

According to Mini, the rear of the vehicle offers space for up to three passengers and a sizeable 300 litres of boot space. With the rear seats folded flat in a 60:40 ratio, the luggage compartment can be expanded up to 1,005 litres as and when required.
