MINI Aceman: The Future of All-electric Small SUVs

MINI is set to revolutionize the world of small SUVs with the upcoming release of its all-new 2025 MINI Aceman. This compact electric SUV, which bridges the gap between the Cooper hatch and the larger Countryman, promises to combine roominess with cutting-edge design and technology.

While the official reveal is scheduled for April 24, we have already caught glimpses of the MINI Aceman undergoing final testing. The compact SUV, measuring just 4075mm long, 1754mm wide, and 1495mm tall, showcases MINI’s commitment to maximizing space and comfort. Thanks to the new ‘Spotlight’ architecture developed in collaboration with Chinese car-maker GWM, the Aceman offers ample room for five adults, a remarkable feat given its compact dimensions.

Furthermore, MINI has embraced a new design language called ‘Charismatic Simplicity,’ which prioritizes minimalist aesthetics and clean lines. The Aceman features distinctive octagon-shaped headlights that add a touch of individuality to its exterior design.

While full details regarding the powertrain are yet to be released, it is expected that the Aceman will adopt the advanced electric powertrain technology from its MINI Cooper E and Cooper SE counterparts. The entry-level Aceman Cooper E will likely be equipped with a 135kW/290Nm electric motor, while the more powerful Cooper SE is expected to generate 160kW/330Nm, allowing for an exhilarating acceleration of 0-100km/h in under 7 seconds. Two battery sizes, 54kWh and 40kWh, will be offered, delivering impressive range capabilities of approximately 400km and 300km, respectively.

Inside the Aceman, drivers will be greeted by a state-of-the-art 9.5-inch disc-shaped OLED infotainment unit, operated by BMW’s latest OS9 operating system. This will be complemented by a virtual assistant activated by voice command.

With its emphasis on sustainable materials, the Aceman boasts an interior that reflects MINI’s commitment to the environment. Leather and chrome have been replaced with vegan-friendly alternatives and 100% recycled fabrics, providing a contemporary and eco-friendly feel.

While the initial production of the MINI Aceman will take place in China, plans are in place to expand production to MINI’s hub in Oxford from 2026. Australian launch details are yet to be confirmed, but anticipation is building for the arrival of this revolutionary all-electric small SUV.
