The MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4. A MINI that isn’t mini, and a plug-in hybrid small crossoverish thing that’s less efficient than a giant minivan.

How the fuck does this thing get 51 kWh/100 mi in electric mode, for only 12 miles? And 27 MPG combined in gas mode is not good for what this thing is, really.

Compare to 40 kWh/100 mi for 33 miles for a Pacifica Hybrid - a huge-ass fucking minivan - and 32 MPG when the battery runs out.

Or, if you want a luxury-class small crossover with AWD, how about the NX 300h being 31 MPG combined (admittedly, not a PHEV)?


What is it with Germans and inefficient PHEVs? (Previously...)
