BMW MINI is planning to bring in two all-electric crossovers and one of them could be a renewed version of the MINI Paceman model. According to a report by Car magazine, MINI wants to bring back the Paceman version, a three-door crossover, that the company built from 2013 to 2016. It also stated this expected MINI model that may make its debut next year for 2024 will be a four-door crossover intended to appeal to a larger customer base.

It is expected that the new Paceman may sport an all-wheel-drive system. Nothing is known about the electric powertrain that the crossover may get though it is being speculated that it may come with a battery of around 60-kilowatt-hours in size. In the report, MINI CEO Bernd Korber said that the company plans to use a bespoke EV platform and aims to upgrade its present architecture and use it in its future vehicles.

The electric Paceman may also get some styling references from the next-generation MINI Cooper. It may get an extra-large body-coloured grille and a roofline that might be less sporty than its older version. Except for these, not much is known about the upcoming electric version of MINI Paceman.
