MINI has revealed its plans to begin production for the fully-electric version of the MINI three door variant in 2019. Back in July, two sketches of the electric vehicle revealed that the upcoming model will get a futuristic design. Moreover, MINI customers will be able to choose from three different drive types - combustion engine, plug-in hybrid or pure-electric motor.
The drivetrain of the fully-electric MINI will be produced at the BMW Group Plants in Dingolfing and Landshut. The company further reveals that the drivetrain will be integrated into the car at the BMW Group Plant Oxford. The company has opted for Oxford as the facility already produces the majority of MINI three door models.
The upcoming MINI three door with electric powertrain option gets a completely closed iconic hexagonal-grille along with the ‘E’ badging. More details for the MINI electric will be known in the days to come.
