Third-generation MINI will get up to 10 variants

Article by Christian A., on October 20, 2013

The third-generation MINI will also be available as a plug-in hybrid as spy photographers already caught the test mules in Europe. Still, this is not a surprise because MINI boss Peter Schwarzenbauer confirmed the MINI plug-in hybrid in a recent interview with Automotive News Europe. MINI is also investigating an all-electric vehicle based on the new model.

Moreover, using the new ULK architecture the company has in mind eight to ten models. For those who don’t know, 41 percent of MINI’s European sales are vehicles equipped with diesel engines but this share drops to 24 percent on a global basis. As a result, MINI will introduce diesel engines in the United States.

We already know that the next-generation MINI will offer a new generation of three- and four-cylinder engines, but MINI boss didn’t confirm if these new engines will be just for the entry-level models or will be offered in every model. The third-generation MINI will make its debut on November 18 and will be presented at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.
