Inspired by the MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 Plug-in Hybrid, the MINI Countryman Panamerica debuted at the 2018 New York International Auto Show with a particular set of skills and a very special journey in mind: navigating the Pan-America Highway, a 16,000-mile passage that stands as the world’s longest north-south road. The three MINI Countryman Panamerica models that will make the trek are on a mission to demonstrate the sublime efficiency and reliability of the 2019 MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 model’s hybrid powertrain.
The Pan-American Highway starts in Alaska and finishes in Argentina’s Tierra del Fuego region. Impressively, during this entire trip the only time the MINI Countryman Panamerica won’t have its wheels on the road is when it takes to the water for a short reroute near the Colombian/Panamanian border, in order to bypass a swath of protected rainforest.
The 2018 MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 Plug-in Hybrid is one of the most capable compact cars on the road, and a terrific choice for those seeking a MINI Countryman near North Shore, MA. However, in order to complete this prodigious journey, some modifications were necessary. Using the 2018 MINI Cooper S E Countryman as a template, the MINI Cooper Panamerica adds a roof rack with a spare wheel, additional headlights, and special tires that can continue running even in emergency situations.
