Bmw planning to manufacture the next generation Mini in Germany

Article by Christian A., on August 27, 2010

There are plans for BMW AG to manufacture the next generation Mini in Germany and its factory in Oxford , England . With the strong growth of the Mini brand, BMW is considering adding another production site. Frank-Peter Arndt, BMW's head of car production, said that it's likely a German factory will be responsible for the production of Mini-based models.

It has also been reported that BMW will build Minis at its factory in Regensburg , where the automaker produces models such as the 1-Series and 3-Series. 

It is believed that BMW is likely to add capacity in Germany rather than in Oxford because of currency exchange rates and other costs that will make it more competitive. When the new Minis are launched, it is believed that the Oxford plant will be unable to meet demand.

Attention has been rather heated since last month when Mini unveiled concepts for its new coupe and roadster models, says Autonews.

These concepts will likely make it to production as well. Already on sale are the hatchback, convertible and Clubman wagon versions.

Meanwhile, a crossover model is in the final stages of development as part of a strategy aimed at further raising the appeal of the iconic small car.
