MINI Electric Car?


An electric version of the MINI car is on the roadmap for the British carmaker. The new MINI will not only be their first mass-production electric car – MINI E-electric was a trial – but also their first model to move away from the Mini original design.

Earlier this year at the 2014 Villa d’Este Concours d’Elegance, the MINI design team unveiled theSuperleggera concept car, a two-door, longer and sleeker MINI. The car has been widely praised for its exceptional design and for the combination of classic and modern lines and materials.
Some may be excited about the change to the ‘MINI look’ however other may prefer for them to keep to the original shape.
The Mini has undergone several reincarnations and changed ownership since it first came on the scene in 1959. The brand was relaunched in 2001 under BMW’s ownership at the Cowley plant, which has just produced its 3 millionth MINI. But sales has been less than spectacular in the last year and a potential brand shake-up has been the talk of the town.

BMW produced 303,177 Minis in 2013 at sites in Oxford, southern England, the Netherlands and Graz in Austria.
