“The MINI Countryman is the ultimate all-rounder; the iconic symbol of urban living. Since its first introduction in 2010, the MINI Countryman has consistently evolved through the decade to suit the trendsetters of every generation. In 2018, Malaysia was the first country in South East Asia to locally assemble the MINI Countryman. Following its tremendous success and in line with our strategy for electromobility, we also introduced the first Plug-In Hybrid variant,” said Harald Hoelzl, managing director of BMW Group Malaysia.

He further added that “The versatile premium Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) and its electrified variant have also been a key contributor to our record-breaking performance of over 1,200 vehicles delivered last year. This is a 19% growth as compared to our performance in 2017 (1,011 vehicles). In the first quarter of 2019, meanwhile, our performance grew by 38% with over 300 vehicles delivered; more than half of which are of MINI Countryman variants.”
