The next generation of the crossover will be assembled in the same factory as the BMW 1-Series and 2-Series.

A new generation of the Mini Countryman crossover will hit the market in 2023. The car will receive both classic internal combustion engines and an all-electric power plant. It is reported that the novelty will be built on the same platform with the BMW 2-Series Active Tourer, for this reason, the crossovers will begin to be assembled at the brand’s plant in Leipzig, Germany.

BMW reportedly plans to invest around € 100 million in the construction of a plant to manufacture components for an electric transmission, including batteries. The enterprises should start operating in 2021.

Recall that in Leipzig since 2013, another electric car has been produced – the BMW i3. At one time, the brand invested about 300 million euros in it to increase production capacity. As a result of these investments, the company began to produce up to 350,000 vehicles per year.
