It is soon being added to the Mini among the car brands that plan to become fully electric within a decade. According to Electrek, Der Spiegel sources have reported that the Mini will be on the road in 2025 with its latest new combustion engine car. The German newspaper said it would be the first BMW group car to bid farewell to the petrol engine.
It won’t be long before the Mini electrifies the series
Cooper SE (aka Mini Electric), as it is known, is currently the brand’s only EV, but an all-electric version of the Countryman will go into production in 2023.
If the information is correct, BMW chief Oliver Zipse is expected to provide more information about the electrification plans when he makes a financial presentation this week.
Mini, as it is known, is a brand focused on only a few models. On the other hand, brand cars are designed primarily for urban driving instead of cross-country trips.
It is thought that it will not take long for the Mini to electrify the series. In addition, the range of electric Minis will not be as much of a problem as for BMW itself and other automakers.
Even so, change is thought to be important. Brands such as Mini, Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo are likely to accelerate the announced transitions for 2030.
