MINI will launch new EVs and will introduce a new architecture for China-produced BEVs from 2023MINI has announced a realignment of its model range driven by its strategic expansion of electromobility, enhanced commitment in the crossover and premium compact segments, and strengthening of the market position in China. "MINI was always the answer to very special challenges relating to individual mobility. And the willingness to reinvent the status quo continues to shape the brand to this day," commented Bernd Körber, Head of MINI. "Alongside electromobility, harnessing new target groups and sales markets will be crucially important for the future of MINI."

According to Korber, the MINI Countryman Plug-in Hybrid accounted for 5% of the bran's total sales in 2019. MINI Electric has added another 5% to all new registrations for the brand. In the future, MINI will offer a completely electrified model family for customers all over the world. The future core portfolio of all-electric vehicles will include the MINI 3-Door Hatch. The next generation of MINI Countryman will be available with both combustion engines and an electrified drivetrain. It will be joined by another crossover model for the small-car segment, which will be supplied exclusively with an all-electric drive.

MINI will also focus on the Chinese market even stronger. Around 10% of all new vehicles produced for the brand are delivered to customers in China. MINI said that it will soon start producing vehicles in China. It will also introduce a new BEV architecture for vehicles produced in China from 2023 in cooperation with Great Wall Motor.
