The Mini Cooper S E Countryman All4 takes Mini's popular crossover and gives it a dose of electricity right to the heart.

Charging the 7.6-kWh battery should take about 3 hours and 15 minutes on a 240-volt plug.

The all-wheel-drive system only engages one set of driven wheels, unless the situation or driver calls for both.

A special "Save Battery" mode lets owners charge their batteries while driving, holding it above 90 percent capacity for later use.

The cargo space is only slightly reduced over the gas-powered Countryman.

Unique hybrid touches include yellow "S" badging and the charging port, which is hidden behind the driver-side fender scuttle. The car's infotainment system features hybrid-only pages, as well.
