Mini is getting ready to update its Oxford plant so that it will only produce electric vehicles starting in 2030. Mini has also announced today that it will invest more than £600 ($750m) in the Mini factories at Oxford and Swindon for its new EVs.
The Oxford plant is being revamped to build two new all-electric Mini models from 2026, the Mini Cooper 3-door and the Mini Aceman compact crossover. “With this new investment we will develop the Oxford plant for production of the new generation of electric MINIs and set the path for purely electric car manufacturing in the future,” says Milan Nedeljković, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG responsible for production.
The Oxford plant recently celebrated its 110th anniversary and has been building the current Mini Electric since 2019.
