The Mini Aceman, an electric-only crossover, is slated for arrival in Australian showrooms in the last quarter of 2024.

Revealed at the 2024 Beijing motor show, this model is based on the Spotlight architecture, an all-electric platform co-developed with GWM.

This platform is also used for the electric Mini Cooper, and production will occur in a facility in Zhangjiagang, China.

The Aceman is 4.07 meters long, 1.75 meters wide, and 1.50 meters tall, making it longer and taller than the Mini Cooper.

It offers a boot capacity of 300 liters with seats up and 1005 liters when the rear seats are folded down.

In terms of design, the Aceman incorporates elements from both the larger Countryman and the electric Cooper, featuring squared-off headlights and an angular design for the fenders and wheel arches.

At launch, two drivetrain options will be available: the standard E model with a 135 kW motor providing 290 Nm of torque, and the SE model, which has a 160 kW motor producing 330 Nm.

The E model has a claimed range of 310 km, while the SE offers up to 406 km on the WLTP cycle, thanks to a larger 54.2kWh battery.

There are four trim levels for the Aceman, starting with the basic Essential to the sport-influenced JCW variant, which includes unique design elements.

Wheel sizes vary from 17 to 19 inches depending on the selected trim.

Inside, the Aceman is equipped with a 9.5-inch circular OLED touchscreen that displays both driving data and infotainment controls.

Additional features include a wireless charging pad and various automated parking options, along with the capability to use smartphones as digital car keys.

The 2025 Mini Aceman is positioned as a compact, electric crossover with the first Australian deliveries expected between October and December 2024.

Pricing and detailed specifications will be disclosed closer to its market launch.
