2019 All-Electric Mini Confirmed For Production In The UK

BMW has released details of its future electrification strategy, including on the upcoming all-electric Mini.

Slated for production in 2019, the all-electric Mini will not be a model of its own; instead it will be a variant of the three-door Hatchback.

The electric powertrain will be built at BMW’s e-mobility center in Bavaria before getting installed into the new model at Mini’s plant in Oxford, with BMW deciding to keep the production in the UK and despite the risk associated with Brexit.

BMW Group expects electrified vehicles to account for between 15 to 25% of sales by 2025. However and since there are many factors such as regulation, incentives and charging infrastructure that will play a major role in the success of electrified vehicles from market to market, BMW Group will develop modular platforms that will be capable of hosting all three forms of powertrains: combustion engine, plug-in hybrid and fully electric.

BMW also repeated that they will launch the i8 Roadster in 2018, with an all-electric version of the X3 coming in 2020 and the iNext in 2021.
