Auto Bavaria, the largest retail and service organization for BMW, MINI, and Motorrad in Malaysia recently organized their first-ever private cycling event with the support of the MINI Countryman Plug-in Hybrid to provide current and potential MINI owners with one of the most unique experience. The by-invitation-only event enabled its participants to experience stage cycling with the support of the MINI Countryman Plug-In Hybrid just like an international multiple stage bicycle race.
The event began at the rise of dawn with participants gathered at Auto Bavaria showrooms across the Klang Valley and begin their journey driving the new MINI Countryman Plug-In Hybrid with their bicycles mounted on the top of the premium SAV to the start location of the ride at Plaza Batai in the area of Damansara Heights.
Upon reaching the start location, the MINI Ride participants were treated to fruits, juices and energy bars before the riding event commenced. This will provide the riders with proper energy and hydration needed for the maximum elevation climb from Plaza Batai towards TTDI Park.
Led by a pacer, the participants climbed a maximum elevation of 137m in between the roads from Plaza Batai to TTDI and a 1km MINI sprint challenge stop at TTDI park before cycling back down to Yellow Brick Road cafe where the participants enjoyed brunch before driving the MINI Countryman Plug-In Hybrid back to Auto Bavaria showroom where they received more insights on the features and capabilities of the new MINI Countryman Plug-In Hybrid.
Participants were impressed with how the MINI Countryman Plug-In Hybrid performed as it provides a great driving impression, user-friendliness in mounting and carrying bikes and the ability to provide cargo space to carry all the necessary for a great day out cycling. The MINI Countryman Plug-In Hybrid delivers a new driving experience with the combination of electricity power, connectivity, and commands. The Plug-In Hybrid offers an electric driving range of up to 42km and a total mix driving range of up to 500km on a full tank of fuel proving that there’s no limit to where the MINI Countryman Plug-In Hybrid can take you.
