The resurrection of Mini is one of the best things that could it happen you group BMW. Her business acuity was decisive because the English company has become a very important piece to obtain huge profits. The range of models from the English manufacturer is not of the most extensive in the industry, but sufficiently representative so that customers wish to have their models in the garage.
We already know that the range of the manufacturer will grow with hybrid and electric versions then they must follow the course imposed by the industry. The fifth Mini model will be an electric vehicle that, according to information provided by the brand, it should reach the market in the year 2019. The global Director of Mini, Sebastian Mackensen, has provided this information in a statement to several international media.
This information fits perfectly with the latest data that the firm had provided on this model. As we know, the manufacture of this electric model of English manufacturer will be outside the United Kingdom. The reason for this decision is based on the low circulation of sales this model will have and therefore more reasonable and sensible to such releases is the outsourcing of their production.
The basis on which will be developed the electric Mini will not take the Superleggera lines. This model was a roadster driven by batteries but its development would be too expensive so it could well be thinking about another idea. This would not be another to take the base of the Rocketman in the year 2011 and that concept and size is close to the original Mini.
This small model follows in the mark schemes, because a year ago Ralph Mahler, Mini Manager, assured that the Rocketman had not been ruled out. Its design was unique and very original so it could represent the highest essence of the British brand in terms of power and efficient vehicle for the city. It remains to be seen if the brand plans come to fruition and the electric Mini model hits the market with sufficient arguments to be a success.
