Mini Countryman Plug-In Hybrid Gets 30 Percent Battery Boost

Mini Countryman Plug-In Hybrid Gets 30 Percent Battery Boost Mini Cooper S E Countryman All4 goes 35 miles on a charge now and will soon be joined by an all-electric sibling. Mini has released information on the new capability of its plug-in-hybrid Countryman prior to its debut at the Frankfurt auto show next week. The Mini Cooper S E Countryman All4 PHEV's range is now 35 miles on electricity alone, which is a 30 percent improvement over the previous model. We told you some details in June about the Mini Cooper S E electric model; it will also be at the show and goes into production later this year in the U.K.

A month ago we were all wondering what a largely hand-built Class 3 fully electric go-anywhere pickup truck and SUV would cost, especially as they're likely to be sold alongside some pretty high-buck hardware from Aston Martin, Bentley, Koenigsegg, Pagani, and Porsche. Well, wonder no more: Bollinger B1 and B2 prices will start at $125,000. That price includes the 120-kW-hr 200-mile battery pack, 5,000-pound payload capacity, portal axles and cross-linked hydropneumatic suspension affording 10-20 inches of ground clearance, and four-wheel drive courtesy of two electric motors powering locking differentials good for a total of 614 horsepower and 668 lb-ft of torque. The 2021 Bollinger B1 SUV and B2 pickup will be built in the U.S. (The company has yet to disclose exactly where or by whom). Here are eight other fun facts disclosed along with the prices.

They're America’s first Class 3 electric truck and SUV . What possessed Robert Bollinger , who studied industrial design at Carnegie Mellon University but ended up running and selling a profitable organic hair-care products business, to start an electric Class 3 truck company?

22.5:1 Crawl Ratio

Engaging low range provides a 22.5:1 torque multiplication through all the gears. That is only about half what a serious off-road vehicle like a Wrangler might offer, but because electric motors produce peak torque at 0 rpm, this gearing allows the B1 and B2 to carefully and slowly creep over any obstacle a 50:1 gasser can climb with similar or greater ease.

True Neutral for Flat-Towing

Tow-behind RVers, rejoice! The Bollinger-designed front and rear two-speed transaxles include a neutral setting to safely allow flat-towing.

Plenty of Room

The "frunk" of both trucks can hold 14 cubic feet of stuff, and there's a 16-by-14-inch pass-through to the cabin, through which long items can be passed. How long? It's 13 feet in the SUV, 16 feet in the truck, with the front and tailgates closed. Much longer if they hang out. (Bollinger has a patent pending on this full-truck pass-through concept.) The rear bed and cargo areas measure 4-foot-1-inch wide for your sheet-goods hauling pleasure. The length is 5 feet, 1 inch on the SUV (with the rear seats removed) and 5 feet, 9 inches long on the truck, which extends to 8 feet, 2 inches if you lower the mid-gate and remove the quick-disconnect rear seats.

2020 Toyota RAV4 plug-in hybrid revealed ahead of LA Auto Show debut

  2020 Toyota RAV4 plug-in hybrid revealed ahead of LA Auto Show debut The "most powerful RAV4 yet" is set to debut at 2019 LA Auto Show.Rather than focusing purely on the fuel economy benefits of the current RAV4 Hybrid, Toyota has chosen to also emphasize the performance advantages of the electrified variant, which is more powerful, slightly faster and a more enjoyable drive than the non-hybrid.

Cassette-Style Windows

The side windows click to latch shut and slide to open, but they also remove in a jiffy for a true open-air feeling. Just press two tabs and the glass, tracks, and sliders pop out as a unit for easy storing, leaving a "half door."

Four Identical Roof Panels

It may not offer a Wrangler/Gladiator-style soft top, but pop out the side windows, remove the windshield and rear lift-glass (by removing a series of nuts), and remove the four roof panels, and you'll feel like you're in a convertible. And the four roof panels are functionally identical between both trucks, though they can be ordered in transparent or opaque materials.

 

Four Identical Seats

Everyone shares the same comfort level, with heat and adjustable thigh support length. Seats can be covered in cloth, leather, and vegan leather.

Triple-Duty Hydraulic Pump

One pump provides pressure for the hydropneumatic suspension when load leveling or compensation is needed, but the same pump also pressurizes the power assist for the brakes and steering, helping make the suspension system extremely compact.

 

Fully Charged

The trucks will offer Level 1 and 2 charging via the standard J1772 port, which will take 10 hours (Level 2); DC fast charging via the CCS port can trim that time to a claimed 75 minutes.

Ford's Mustang-inspired, all-electric SUV packs up to 300 miles of range and a starting price of $43,895. But, you'll have to wait a bit longer to get all the details.It looks pretty good, actually. We're especially digging the classic frenched taillights and the trapezoidal grille in the front, as well as the prominent rear haunches that help to give it more than a little Big Pony Energy.
