MINI: New Electric Models Coming, Plus Dedicated EV Platform In The Works

EV production will start in China from 2023, utilizing a new vehicle architecture “developed from the ground up for pure e-mobility.”

MINI (part of the BMW Group) announced that it intends to continue electrification of its range, including the introduction of new electric models, a new EV platform and local EV production in China.

The company currently offers two plug-in models, the plug-in hybrid MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4, which in 2019 was responsible for 5% of the brand’s sales volume, and the all-electric MINI Cooper SE, which allowed MINI to increase the plug-in share to 10% of the overall volume this year.
