The Aceman, now revealed in its production-ready form, is Mini's new electric-only vehicle. Showcased ahead of the 2024 edition of the Beijing Motor Show, the Mini Aceman will join the Countryman and the Cooper in the lineup. Like the Cooper, the Aceman uses Mini's Spotlight platform developed in partnership with Great Wall Motor. It will come in two variants initially – E and SE. The former gets a 181bhp electric motor coupled with a 42.5kWh battery pack, whereas the latter is equipped with a 215bhp motor with a 54.2kWh battery. 

Using a 42.5kWh battery, the less powerful Mini Aceman E offered a WLTP-certified 310km range. 0 to 100km/h comes up in a claimed time of 7.9 seconds, while the top speed is set at 160km/h. Given that the top-spec SE packs more punch and a larger battery pack, the 0 to 100km/h acceleration time takes 7.1 seconds. The range and top speed stand at 406km and 170km/h, respectively.

Mini Aceman: Charging Capabilities

Both variants of the Mini Aceman are compatible with AC and DC charging options. With its fast DC charging capabilities of up to 95kW, the battery of the SE variant takes less than 30 minutes to charge from 10 to 80 per cent. Meanwhile, the E can be charged at rates up to 75kW DC. 

Mini Aceman: Dimensions, Design

In terms of dimensions, the Mini Aceman measures 4,077mm in length, 1,750mm in width, and 1,500mm in height, making it 192mm longer, 23mm wider, and 130mm taller than the Cooper. The electric crossover slots between the Cooper and the Countryman. Compared to the Cooper, the Aceman features angular headlights with LED daytime running lights that can be switched to three different modes. The unique styling elements also include squared-out wheel arches, revised bumpers, matte-black sills, and rectangular Matrix LED tail lamps. However, the Aceman retains the octagonal grille and floating roof, both of which make it unmistakably Mini. 

Mini will offer the Aceman in four different trims: Essential, Classic, Favoured, and JCW, each with an oblong-shaped badge on the side sill as well as alloy wheels in sizes from 17 to 19 inches.

On the inside, the electric crossover has a big central OLED display that runs Mini OS 9. Besides, there is a host of toggle switches for the gear selector, start/stop, parking brake, experience mode, and volume control offering peace of mind. The dashboard of the Aceman features a knitted textile material, while the seats are available with either a textile surface or perforated Vescin upholstery. Though the car loses a gauge cluster, there is an optional head-up display.
