The Mini Aceman EV is an electric crossover that shows how the brand imagines its future models. A production version of this EV will arrive later to fill the gap between the Cooper and Countryman in the lineup.
Mini does not offer any mechanical details about the Mini Aceman. Instead, the company remains focused on vehicle design and technology. The vehicle is the unique color Icy Sunglow Green, which has a blue tint in these images. The roof is metallic British Racing Green.
The Aceman is the first expression of Mini’s new Charismatic Simplicity design language. The aim of this new look is to combine minimalism and sustainability. At the most basic level, this crossover has a classic two-box shape. The wheels are at the extreme corners to minimize the length of the front and rear overhangs.
To put the Aceman’s size into perspective, the electric crossover measures 159.4 inches (4.05 meters) long and 78.35 inches (1.99 meters) wide. For comparison, the current Mini Countryman measures 4.31 meters (169.7 inches) long and 2 meters (78.8 inches) wide taking into account the side mirrors.
Up front, the Aceman has an evolution of the current Mini look. Since this is an EV, you don’t need a large grill to cool the engine. Instead, the top area has LED lighting that can display a Union Jack design. A green accent outlines this area.
While existing Mini models have round headlights, the Aceman here has a more angular appearance. Running lights surround the lamps, and there are LEDs inside.
Thick body cladding surrounds the wheel wells and underbody. A bronze colored Union Jack roof rack mounts to the top of the vehicle.
The Aceman rides on 20-inch wheels. The five spokes bend inwards, creating a captivating visual effect. At the rear, a black spoiler hangs over the rear window. There is a mild style hatchback and the taillights have a Union Jack look like the front lights.
