Mini is adding yet another electric vehicle (EV) to its ranks.

    The Mini Aceman is due in Australia in the fourth quarter of 2024, priced from $55,990 before on-road costs.

    It will follow shortly after the new-generation electric Cooper hatch and electric versions of the Countryman, due here in the third quarter.

    The Aceman slots in between these two models in both size and price, and will battle the likes of the Volvo EX30.

    Mini is bringing just two variants here: the E, with a 135kW/290Nm electric motor, a 42.6kWh battery and Classic trim; and the SE, with 160kW and 330Nm, a 54.2kWh battery, and Favoured trim.

    There’s not much customisation on offer, perhaps surprisingly for a Mini product.

    The E is offered in just two colours, for example, while the SE adds a third.

    Owners can customise the daytime running lights, however, choosing between three different modes.

    There’s no leather, with the E coming with cloth and Vescin (leatherette) upholstery, and the SE ditching the cloth. Mini has also stopped using chrome.

    Other eco-friendly touches include alloy wheels made from up to 70 per cent recycled aluminium, and interior surfaces and floor mats made from at least 90 per cent recycled polyester.

    The Aceman is based on the same all-electric Spotlight architecture developed with Chinese carmaker GWM. This platform currently underpins the electric Mini Cooper.

    Both the electric Cooper hatch and Aceman crossover will be built for global markets in a joint venture factory in Zhangjiagang, about 130km north-west of Shanghai.
