LONDON: According to a report from Autocar, MINI will reportedly build two new models, one made for the China market and one of conventional origins.
It seems the China-market model will be an electric 5-door crossover, using a shared platform and built in collaboration with Great Wall Motors.
As for the second model, it is said that it will revive the Traveller name and be a bit bigger than the current Countryman.
This model will not be exclusively electric but will also offer internal combustion engines to those interested. The car will be comparable to a BMW X3 in size once it arrives somewhere in 2024 and it will most likely use the CLAR architecture, making it the first MINI in history with a longitudinally mounted engine.
