THE wraps have come off the new MINI Aceman - a crossover model that will sit between the classic Cooper and the larger Countryman.

All-electric and with a range of up to 252 miles the newcomer will be available in E and SE specifications priced from £31,800 and £36,300 respectively.

The Aceman measures 4.07 metres long, 1.754 metres wide and 1.514 metres high and first deliveries are scheduled to start in November.

It will be available in three trim levels - Classic, Exclusive and Sport - with E versions powered by a 184hp motor giving a range of up to 192 miles.

Longer range SE variants have a 218hp motor giving more performance with a top speed of 105mph and a 0 to 62mph acceleration time of 7.1 seconds compared to the 7.9 seconds and 99mph top speed of the E.

Recharging from 10 to 80 per cent capacity can be done in under 30 minutes and the battery is capable of either AC or DC charging.

MINI says the Aceman is a five-seater and boot space ranges from 300 litres to 1,005 litres with the rear seats folded.

The Aceman was revealed at the Beijing Auto Show where the car had its world premiere.

Stefanie Wurst, head of MINI said: "The MINI Aceman is perfect for navigating crowded city streets, while maintaining the versatility and functionality of a crossover and the go kart feeling you can expect from a MINI.

"I am certain that the sleek design, the performance, and the versatility as a five-seater crossover, will make the MINI Aceman a resounding success."

Inside, the Aceman features MINI's new-look interior with the now-familiar 24cm OLED display, a fresh appearance to the toggle bar and a heated steering wheel.

There's also a curved dashboard which is covered with a recycled polyester textile material that extends into the door trims and features a two-tone design.

The Aceman has 12 ultrasonic sensors and four surround view cameras which can identify vacant parking spaces with greater precision and automatically help park where space is limited. With a new remote parking function option the vehicle can be parked using a smartphone.

Optional equipment comes in three packages - Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 - with the MINI Aceman SE coming with Level 1 which includes a head-up display as standard.

Level 2 includes a glass sky roof, sun protection glass and surround sound while Level 3 adds electric front seats with memory and massage functionality, an interior camera, MINI Navigation AR and a personal eSIM among its features.
