Mini releases design sketches of its first ever fully electric model

Mini releases design sketches of its first ever fully electric model

Mini has released a pair of design sketches as an early preview of the brand’s first fully-electric production model, which is set to make its debut in 2019. These sketches coincides with the Mini Electric concept which recently made its debut in the UK.

Following on from the E pilot project exactly ten years ago and the Mini Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 plug-in hybrid model on sale since 2017, the first fully-electric Mini represents the next stage in the electrification of the brand.

The sketches show the car’s grille. Its hexagonal form is a signature Mini design element, but the closed-off interpretation is all new. Behind the grille, cooling elements are conspicuous by their absence – which means the grille can stay closed and therefore improve airflow. A yellow accent bar with an E badge in the same colour has been added for the contrasting effect and identifies this as an electric Mini. The second sketch shows the wheel design, which has been carried over from the Electric Concept – unveiled for the first time last year – into the production model. The wheels take the motif of the accent bar on the radiator grille and add their own asymmetrical twist.

BMW announced the development of a battery electric Mini production vehicle in July 2017. The first of these large-scale produced Minis with battery-electric drivetrains will be available from 2019 – exactly 60 years after the launch of the classic Mini.
