Like other major car manufacturers, electrifying the model range is a goal for Mini to achieve by 2033 at the latest.
The Cowley brand has made public its future strategy, which states that, in 2025, the latest Mini model with internal combustion engine would be produced.
Also, in two years, the British brand should launch its first model of the new generation of “full electric” cars. This would most likely be the Mini Countryman.
The first “electric” from the Mini: a compact three-door and a crossover
Given that the normal life cycle of a car is 7-8 years, Mini would become a 100% electric brand by 2032 or 2033 at the latest. However, this production cycle is not necessarily a rule, so we can expect the electrification of the Mini range to occur even earlier than this term.
According to information made public by Mini representatives, the future portfolio of zero-emission models will include a three-door model and a crossover, both in the market segment of premium compacts.
The first two fully electric vehicles from Mini will be produced in China, but the brand owned by the BMW group did not specify which models it is.
The successor to the current Mini Countryman will be assembled on the BMW production line in Leipzig starting in 2023. The new model will be offered with both conventional internal combustion engines and electric units.
Beyond the electrification process of the Mini range, BMW intends to reduce carbon dioxide emissions on every car throughout its life cycle by up to 80% by 2030. The Bavarian group is also considering a increase in the amount of natural and recycled materials used in its models.
