MINI Plant Oxford has built more than 11,000 MINI Electrics since production began, just before the plant’s annual summer shutdown. Premiered in July 2019, during the brand’s 60th anniversary year, MINI’s first all-electric model is fully integrated into the production process at Oxford, running down the same line as the combustion engine models.
Since its launch, more than 3,000 MINI Electric orders have been placed in the UK.
The MINI Electric is the second electrified MINI in the model line-up, joining the MINI Countryman Plug-In Hybrid.
The high level of flexibility at Plant Oxford means MINI Electric production can be adjusted according to global demand. The growth in popularity of electric vehicles means that next year, a third of MINI 3-Door Hatch models built at Plant Oxford is expected to be the fully-electric model.
