Mini Reveals Plans for EV Future

Mini is working on a new generation of its traditional hatchback for 2023

  • The next generation of the traditional Mini will arrive in 2023

  • A new Countryman SUV will also be part of the strategy

  • EV versions of the Mini and the Countryman are planned

Mini is a brand that is somewhat a victim of its own success, since it is based on bringing the styling and the personality of the original Mini into the modern era.

Because of that, changes to the Mini have been relatively minor since the BMW designed modern version arrived on the market in 2001.

Despite that, 3 distinct generations have been sold since then, and the fourth one should arrive in 2023.

As expected, pictures show the exterior changes will be minimal over the current model, with the only notable differences being the headlights and the grille, which both seem bigger.

Mini recently unveiled its plans for the future, and they include a new generation of its traditional hatchback, as well as a new generation of the related Countryman SUV.

In an effort to become more sustainable, the electric version of the Mini will be carried over to the new model and the Countryman will also receive an electric powertrain, for the first time.

The company also added that its goal is to have 50 % of its sales be EVs by 2027 and it confirmed that the last gasoline powered model of Mini will be introduced in 2025, making the next generation of Mini the last one to have an engine.

Enthusiasts can be reassured that the Mini will not lose its sporty character however, because the company’s engineers are already working on John Cooper Works versions of the electric hatchback.
