The new, fully-electric MINI three-door model is among the upcoming series of electrified models to be launched by the BMW and Mini brands in the coming years. In fact, BMW’s next-gen vehicle architecture will be structured in order to enable new models also to be offered as a full-electric vehicle.

The drivetrain for the all-electric 3-door Mini will go into production in 2019 at the BMW Group’s e-mobility centre at Dingolfing and Landshut facilities in Bavaria before being integrated into the car at Oxford plant which is the main production location for the 3-door hatch.

BMW expects electrified vehicles to account for between 15-25 per cent of sales within the next decade. However, factors such as regulation, incentives and charging infrastructure will play a major role in determining the scale of electrification from market to market. BMW is also working on enabling its production facilities to build models with a combustion engine, plug-in hybrid or fully electric drive train at the same time.
