While the original Mini Cooper is an iconic, chugging classic with mechanics that might be a little dated, it’s still a highly sought-after vehicle, and Mini, being aware of this, is moving with the times.
Mini has announced that a new Mini Cooper with a fully electric drive-train is in the works. However, we shouldn’t get too excited just yet, though, as this won’t be a full production model, but rather a concept vehicle to showcase the company’s ambitions in the electric car market.
This resurrection of the classic Mini comes as a prelude to the Mini Electric Concept, which was announced at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show – and precedes the brand’s first all electric car, due in 2019.
As more and more alternative energy technologies become better researched and developed expect brands to create more fanfare around their electric cars, with Mini leading the charge within the BMW stable.
