Mini to bring back the Paceman as a BEV

Mini is planning a revival of the Paceman as an electric crossover for 2024. However, the name is the only thing the new Paceman will share with the combustion model.

According to industry insider Georg Kacher, writing in Car Magazine, the new Paceman will be a four-door model, will be available with all-wheel-drive, and will compete against models such as the Opel Mokka-e and the electric Puma from Ford. Kacher also referred to a battery size of 60 kWh and a range of around 250 miles.

At present, it is not yet known which platform the Paceman will be based on: “We have the next five years buttoned up and, come 2030, Mini will be fully electric,” former Mini CEO Bernd Körber told Car Magazine.

“We’ll use two architectures: a bespoke EV matrix developed in Munich but built in China; and a comprehensive evolution of our existing platform. A Mini is a Mini, no matter whether it’s battery or petrol-powered.”
