New Countryman will share its platform with BMW X1 and 2-series Active Tourer, so we can naturally assume that it will also share plug-in hybrid drive system, found for example in BMW 225xe Active Tourer. Similar like in Active Tourer in its key element will be 1,5-litre turbocharged petrol three-cylinder engine, which will be mated to the electric motor on the rear axle. Combined plug-in hybrid powertrain should produce 221 hp and be good for about 40 kilometers of electric ride.

Plug-in hybrid Countryman will hit the road a little later than petrol and diesel variants, probably in the end of 2017 or begining of 2018.
