Automakers across the globe are embracing electrification. To the general public, Tesla is leading the charge for electric vehicles, while the Toyota Prius and Chevrolet Volt are top of mind for hybrids and plug-ins.

But those automakers and vehicles fit only a very small set of scenarios. Luxury car buyers seem to be a big priority for PHEV makers with Cadillac, Volvo, BMW, and Mercedes all offering plug-in variants of their large vehicles. There’s a PHEV in nearly every shape and size so long as you want a luxury car and have the budget for it. But what about those with more modest budgets? It seems there’s a limit on choices at the moment. MINI’s biggest model, the Countryman, debuted with the promise of solving that concern.

Having driven it for a short stint in Montreal and the surrounding areas, I can confirm there’s no compromise with the Cooper SE Countryman. A plug-in hybrid capable of traveling 12 miles on a single charge, it’s the brand's first PHEV and a successor to the MINI E pilot program that debuted in North America about eight years ago. Where the MINI E was a fully electric city car, the SE Countryman is a plug-in hybrid and is much bigger and more practical.
