3 MINI Countryman Panamericana PHEVs To Travel From North America To Tierra Del Fuego

As a showcase for the new MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 plug-in hybrid, a group of 3 modified versions of the model will soon set off on a journey from North America to Tierra del Fuego in South America — traveling along part of the 25,750 kilometers Alaska-to-Argentina Pan-American Highway, according to a new press release.

As a showcase for the new MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 plug-in hybrid, a group of 3 modified versions of the model will soon set off on a journey from North America to Tierra del Fuego in South America — traveling along part of the 25,750 kilometers Alaska-to-Argentina Pan-American Highway, according to a new press release.

The Pan-American Highway, also known as Ruta Panamericana and Interamericana, is a road network comprising a journey through various mountain passes, jungles, and different climatic zones — as well as a ship passage from Panama to Columbia.

The new modified MINI Cooper SE Countryman ALL4 plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) were unveiled for the first time at the 2018 New York International Auto Show.

The press release provides more: “With its underpinnings taken from the brand’s first plug-in hybrid vehicle…Additional headlights, tires with emergency running characteristics, and a roof rack for transporting a spare wheel will make the compact 5-door fit for a road trip in a class of its own. Based on the MINI Cooper SE Countryman ALL4 (fuel consumption combined: 2.3-2.1 l / 100 km, combined power consumption: 14.0-13.2 kWh / 100 km, combined CO2 emissions from fuel: 52-49 g / km), the combined power and versatility of its 2 engines make it the perfect endurance athlete for the Panamericana adventure.”

As a comparison here, the consumer version of the MINI Cooper SE Countryman ALL4 PHEV reportedly features an all-electric range of around 40 kilometers (probably less in the real world); a combined system output of 165 kW / 224 horsepower; and effectively similar storage space (as one would guess).
