Mini Unveils the All-New Aceman with Two Powertrain Options

Mini has unveiled the all-new Aceman, a fully electric crossover poised to compete in the subcompact SUV segment. As the high-riding counterpart to the Mini Cooper, the Aceman offers a spacious cabin while retaining the urban agility characteristic of the brand.

Distinctive design elements from the Cooper hatchback and Countryman SUV merge into the Aceman’s design, featuring matte black plastic cladding, skid plates, and roof rails for a crossover stance. The iconic Mini design traits, such as the wraparound greenhouse and floating roof, remain intact, with the octagonal grille at the front adding to its character.

The Mini Aceman lineup comprises four trims – Essential, Classic, Favoured, and JCW – each with unique design elements and alloy wheels ranging from 17 to 19 inches. The flagship JCW model stands out with Chili Red accents and exclusive styling cues.

Measuring 4,075mm long, 1,754mm wide, and 1,495mm tall, the Aceman positions itself between the Cooper and Countryman, offering a five-seater cabin with 300 litres of cargo space. The interior resembles the Cooper’s, featuring a 9.44 inch circular OLED touchscreen and Mini Operating System 9 infotainment, including the Intelligent Personal Assistant “Spike.”

The Aceman offers eight selectable Mini Experience Modes, each with distinct graphics and ambient lighting patterns. It comes equipped with advanced driver assistance systems, including twelve ultrasonic sensors and four Surround View cameras.

Power wise, the Aceman offers two electric powertrain options shared with the electric Mini Cooper. The entry-level Aceman E features a 40.7 kWh battery pack and a single electric motor producing 181hp, while the Aceman SE boasts a 54.2 kWh battery pack and a more powerful electric motor delivering 215hp.

The Mini Aceman is set to go on sale in markets such as China and Europe later this year, with production starting in China and expanding to Mini’s Oxford plant in the UK in 2026.
