Mini cars to go solely electric from 2030


Bavarian carmaker BMW, owner of the iconic Mini range since 1994, plans solely electric versions from 2030, reported Der Spiegel magazine on Friday. No more combustion models and not even hybrids would emerge next decade, added BMW sources cited by the German news agency dpa. Currently, BMW’s only full electric version is the Mini Cooper SE, built at its subsidiary in Oxford, alongside the SUV Mini Countryman as a plug-in hybrid. From 2023, the sport utility Countryman would emerge as a full-electric version from BMW’s works in Leipzig, according to Friday’s media coverage.
