MINI names new caravan after its historic Cowley site

Article by Anita Panait, on July 22, 2013

MINI is paying homage to its historic Cowley plant that is celebrating a century of car manufacturing by naming its new compact tourer after it. The Cowley plant -- now known as Plant Oxford –is home to many models of the current MINI range and was where the carmaker built its classic BMC/Austin Mini.

The Cowley caravan is indeed good news to caravan people around the globe as it provides both comfort and safety. The Cowley caravan features all the modern convenience a caravan driver could wish for.

The features include two comfortable sleeping berths; a twin-burner gas stove; and a pump and sink facility with water tank. It also features a solar module that charges on-board battery, with a 230-volt connection that allows one to electrify his TV/DVD, audio equipment or refrigerator.

The Cowley caravan comes with the typical MINI styling. It features silhouette that are suggestive of the curved lines of the MINI panels. Its doors feature sliding windows on both sides, which is standard in the classic Mini up to 1969.

The Cowley is 12 centimeters wider than a MINI Clubman, including exterior mirrors. Its weight is less than 300 kg. [source: MINI]
