The new Countryman SUV range will include petrol and electric versions and will arrive in Australia in Q3, 2024

Mini Australia has confirmed pricing and specification for a further three models for the new-generation Countryman small SUV, two of which are fully electric.

Although pricing starts at $49,990 before on-road costs for the already-confirmed front-drive Countryman C, Mini will offer its first all-electric small SUV from $64,990 before on-road costs. 

Pricing for electric Countryman variants sits as high as $77,990 before on-road costs for the SE ALL4 JCW Sport.

An all-wheel-drive John Cooper Works combustion variant of the Countryman will also be available in Australia, priced from $67,990 before on-road costs. 

The three new Countryman variants will arrive in Australia during the third quarter of 2024.

If you don’t want to wait until the third quarter of this year, the good news is that the initial Countryman C and S combustion variants will go on sale in the first quarter of 2024.
