MINI Aceman joins the lineup with 400+ km range


After the Cooper SE and Countryman SE, Mini is expanding its all-electric lineup with the first-ever Aceman. No, there’s no ‘P’ missing in front of it. The Aceman is essentially a successor to the Clubman, and also a replacement for the 5-door version of the Cooper SE, which is probably why it costs only £1,800 more than the Cooper SE, with a starting price of £31,800. Order books in the UK open on June 12, 2024.

The Aceman’s design language is in line with the other two electric siblings; the front fascia is almost similar to that of the Countryman SE, but there are significant differences in the taillight design of all three electric models. LED headlights come standard, and there are three light signatures you can choose from (full, inverted L shape, and top & bottom). The wheel designs are also different; depending on the trim/variant, the sizes range from 17- to 19-inches. The wheels are claimed to be made from recycled aluminium. The Aceman attempts to look a bit rugged and muscular with those plastic wheel arch claddings.


As for dimensions, the Aceman is positioned between the Cooper and the Countryman, obviously. It measures 4.07 metres in length, 1.75 metres in width and 1.50 metres in height, with a wheelbase of 2.61 metres. Thanks to the 60:40 folding rear seat backrest, the luggage compartment can be extended from 300 litres to up to 1,005 litres as needed, says Mini.

Inside, the Aceman gives off similar vibes as its SE siblings. There’s a 240 mm-diameter circular OLED display, up to 8 Mini Experience Modes to jazz up your cabin with colors, lights and sound, a fancy new steering wheel, and of course, toggle switches on the dashboard. If I understood Mini’s press release correctly, there’s no real leather usage here; the upholstery is a combo of textile and synthetic leather.

The Aceman E is powered by a single electric motor at the front, producing 135 kW (183.5 metric hp) and 290 Nm (214 lb-ft), same figures as the Cooper E. The official 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time is 7.9 seconds while the top speed is 160 km/h (99 mph). But don’t worry, there’s also the Aceman SE to choose from, offering 160 kW (217.5 metric hp) and 330 Nm (243 lb-ft) and an official o-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time of 7.1 seconds and a top speed of 170 km/h (106 mph).

The Aceman E with a 42.5 kWh battery pack is claimed to offer a WLTP range of up to 310 km (193 mi) while the Aceman SE with a 54.2 kWh battery pack is claimed to offer a WLTP range of up to 406 km (252 mi). The Aceman E and the Aceman SE can be DC fast-charged with up to 75 kW and 95 kW, respectively.
