The British will release only three special crossover and will send them on a trip along the Pan-American highway length of almost 30,000 kilometers.

At the New York International Auto Show MINI presented an experimental modification of the plug-hybrid crossover Cooper S E Countryman All4, called Panamericana. It was equipped with additional equipment, which will help to facilitate a long journey.

The very name Panamericana is given special versions in honor of the network of roads stretching from Alaska in North America to the island of Tierra del Fuego in South America. This network is called the Pan American Highway. Its length is about 30,000 kilometers. That is why it can be considered the longest road in the world.

Countryman Panamericana features additional lighting technology, mounted on the roof of the trunk, where you can transport a spare tire and tires. The car itself is shod in run-flat tires. On the sides of the body were vinyl stickers in the form of silhouettes of two continents – the North and South Americas.

Plug-in hybrid power plant in the modification of Panamericana has not changed. As in the Cooper S E Countryman All4, it consists of a 1.5-liter three-cylinder petrol turbo with a power of 136 horsepower and an 87-horsepower electric motor. It is powered by a 7.6 kWh battery. The total power of the plant is 224 hp and 385 Nm of torque, which is transmitted to the wheels of a six-speed automatic transmission. The power reserve on one electric tract is up to 40 kilometers.

With such a long journey, the manufacturer MINI wants to prove that hybrids are suitable not only for short trips between neighboring cities.

At the beginning of the year, MINI introduced the updated hatchbacks and cabriolet in Detroit.
