MINI recently announced plans to redesign its lineup with a focus on expanding electric vehicles, strengthening its position in China and strengthening its “commitment to the SUV and premium compact segments.”

Thus, the British brand intends to create a lineup of electric cars, which will include a 3-door hatchback and two new crossovers. At the same time, MINI stressed that they have no plans to switch entirely to electric vehicles.

The British brand reports that the “senior” crossover will be electric, while the new generation Countryman will be offered not only with standard, but also with electrified motors. Speaking of the upcoming models, the new premium compact car is worth mentioning. MINI did not reveal details, although it can be assumed that the car will be relatively large. However, the company said that each new model of the brand will remain true to the tradition of MINI.

In turn, in order to increase sales in China, the British brand intends to produce electric vehicles in this country from 2023. The electric cars, which will be produced in partnership with Great Wall Motor, will be built on a completely new platform.

In addition, it was recently revealed that tuners from Manhart have shown the Mini JCW GP in the iconic green color. It should be emphasized that this shade under the name “British Racing Green” is closely associated with the tradition of British motorsport.
