MINI has already revealed the Cooper EV's interior which will come with a simplified layout by making the circular screen on the dashboard perform infotainment and instrument functions. There will be a head-up display ahead of the driver and an oval-shaped piece on the center stack including some physical buttons.

Coming to the Countryman, it will share its platform with the BMW iX1. There will be the base E trim with a single motor making 188 hp and a 54-kWh battery. It will also get a John Cooper Works variant eventually.

In the United Kingdom, prices for these models will start at around the equivalent of $37,730 (30,000 pounds) while sales begin in that market in the summer of 2024.

Both the electric MINIs will be a part of the BMW Group's electrification presentation at the IAA Mobility show in Munich, Germany, starting in September. Other debuts from the brand will include the i Vision Circular and i Vision Dee concepts. The i7 will be there in an armored variant while the iX5 Hydrogen will show off the automaker's fuel cell tech.
