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.
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.
