We recognise that when it comes to choosing the right engine, there is a wide range of compelling options available on the market today. With our diesel, petrol and plug-in hybrid models all cleaner and more efficient than ever, each offers its own unique advantages.
MINI ENGINE DETAILS.
Every MINI engine employs 100 years of engineering excellence and a range of cutting-edge technologies as standard. So, whatever your requirements, you can be confident that you will be driving one of the cleanest, most efficient cars in its class.
CO2 DOWN - Between 1995 – 2016 we have reduced the total CO2 emissions of the BMW Group model range in Europe by 40%.
Every new MINI engine meets the strictest EU6 emissions standards. The aim of EU6 is to reduce levels of harmful car and van exhaust emissions, both in petrol and diesel cars.
This includes nitrogen oxide (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons (THC and NMHC) and particulate matter (PM), which is basically soot from diesel cars.
LEZ – LOW EMISSION ZONE.
This was introduced in 2008 to encourage the most polluting heavy diesel vehicles driving in the capital to become cleaner, but currently does not affect any cars. LEZs also exist in Brighton, Norwich, Nottingham and Oxford, however they currently only affect buses. Concerned customers should check local council websites for more information.
From 23 October 2017, cars, vans, minibuses, buses, coaches and HGVs in central London will need to meet minimum exhaust emission standards, or pay a daily £10 Emissions Surcharge (also known as the Toxicity Charge, or T-Charge). This will be in addition to the Congestion Charge.
ULEZ – ULTRA LOW EMISSION ZONE.
The Ultra Low Emission Zone (due to start in September 2020) is an area within which all cars, motorcycles, vans, minibuses, buses, coaches and heavy good vehicles (HGVs) will need to meet exhaust emission standards (ULEZ standards) or pay a daily travel charge. All registered residents living in the ULEZ will be granted a three-year grace period with a 100% discount, until 6 September 2023. If the scheme is pulled forward, the grace period would also move in line.
Euro 6 (diesel) vehicles registered after 1 September 2015 meet ULEZ standards.
|Vehicle type (includes hybrid vehicles)||Minimum emission standard||T-Charge amount (if emission standard not met)|
|Cars and small vans (not exceeding 1,205kg unladen weight and not exceeding 3,500kg GVW)||Euro 4||£10|
|Cars, taxis and private hire passenger vehicles with up to 8 seats in addition to the driver||Euro 6 (diesel)|
Euro 4 (petrol)
EURO EMISSION STANDARDS.
For newer vehicles, the Euro emission standard may be listed on the vehicle log book (V5C). If your vehicle meets the required Euro emission standard, it will be compliant with ULEZ.
CLEAN AIR FRAMEWORK.
Clean Air Framework from the Department of Transport issued that EU6 Diesel will not face any penalty charges anywhere in the UK.
All our MINI Products (diesel & petrol) are EU6.
BMW Group has been named the world’s most sustainable car maker for the last three consecutive years according to the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI).
Since 2006, we have reduced the energy consumption required to produce a MINI by 35% and reduced the waste produced by over 80%.
63% of the electricity sourced for BMW Group Production worldwide already comes from renewable energy sources.
MINI TwinPower Turbo diesel engines deliver a spirited response, class-leading fuel economy and impressively low emissions thanks to MINIMALISM technology, meaning you can enjoy more thrust with less thirst.
NOx REDUCED 90% - Our diesel engines employ two highly effective systems which, when combined, eliminate up to 90% of nitrogen oxide (NOX) emissions.
All models include a diesel particulate filter and maintenance-free NOX storage catalytic converter.
CO2 REDUCED 20% - On average, a diesel engine emits 20% less CO2 than a comparable petrol engine.
MINI diesel engines are made from lightweight aluminium and are available in 3 and 4 cylinder variants.
All diesel engines boast the following BMW Group innovations:
Thanks to our consistent focus on developing new innovations, the latest generation of BMW Group TwinPower Turbo petrol engines are more fuel efficient, more economical and more powerful than ever before.
For a truly responsive, highly efficient drive, our 3 and 4 cylinder engine variants are built with the latest innovations:
DRIVEN BY FUN. GUIDED BY PERFORMANCE.
A MINI doesn’t ask for much. The on-demand components provide it with whatever it needs, whenever it needs it. Its automatic cooling and supply systems switch themselves on when required and then off again, all on their own. This reduced energy consumption means less fuel is needed, therefore fewer emissions are generated.
All-important engine components, lightweight components and auxiliary systems all actively contribute to improving the energy balance sheet of MINI.
DON’T WORRY. YOU’RE STILL THE DRIVER.
MINI knows when it’s on to a good thing – for itself, for its drivers and for the environment. Intelligent technologies, such as the Auto Start Stop function and Shift Point Display, ensure that MINI drivers enjoy on-the-road economy. Our 8-speed automatic transmissions can coast, temporarily disengaging the transmission to minimise engine revs and maximise efficiency, instantly re-engaging with a touch of the accelerator. It’s all about saving energy with the right technologies in as many situations as possible – whether you’re accelerating, braking, turning or just simply standing.
A CLEVER DESIGN. TYPICALLY MINI.
The heart and mind of a MINI work in sync, driven by economical technology and intelligent driving systems and the highly developed exterior design is the ideal framework for typical MINI driving fun.
What’s more, the sportiness of a MINI is due (in no small part) to its lightweight aluminium chassis components and aerodynamic details helping to enhance all-round efficiency. In short: MINIMALISM in top form.
UK GOVERNMENT PLUG-IN GRANT.
OLEV has confirmed that the MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 is eligible for the Plug-in Car Grant (PiCG) scheme. It will be added to the list of eligible vehicles on the gov.uk page and to the PiCG Portal.
It is the responsibility of the retailer to administer the PiCG claim on behalf of the customer. To secure the grant at £2,500 retailers must raise a PiCG Portal case prior to registration and the vehicle must be delivered within a maximum of nine months.
In case of any queries around the PiCG, retailers should contact the Network Support Team and not OLEV directly.
The Network Support Team will arrange for access to the PiCG Portal for all retailers.
THE NEW MINI COUNTRYMAN PLUG-IN HYBRID.
The MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 uses its dual drivetrain to achieve impressive performance and economy figures along with the ability for zero exhaust emissions when in eDrive pure electric mode. The benefit of the dual drivetrain on this new model is the ability of the two axles to deliver all-wheel drive when both the ICE and electric engine are being used.
INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE (ICE).
REAL-WORLD FUEL CONSUMPTION.
Customer qualification, to ensure the MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 is the right car for your customer, is imperative to establish their driving habits and make sure the car suits their needs.
The MINI Countryman Plug-in Hybrid has various drive modes that allow the driver to significantly influence the actual consumption. This depends on driving behaviour, distance travelled and the mode selected.
URBAN & DAY-TO-DAY DRIVING.
Short distances can be covered on purely electric power, although most urban journeys will operate in the hybrid mode. Longer journeys may result in the combined consumption figures above vehicles in the class without electric drivetrains. The graph helps to explain which driving styles and distances suit either an eDrive vehicle such as the MINI Countryman Plug-in Hybrid or an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicle.
It is important to discuss this with your customer as the MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 is more typically suited to urban journeys of short to medium distance which optimise the electric motor, consequently reducing petrol consumption.
Key to getting the most out of the hybrid nature of the vehicle is making use of the ability to charge the electric battery at a power source.
