Mini started as a subcompact microcar model in 1959 under the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and was later expanded into a full marque/brand in 1969. When BMW acquired the Rover Group (Mini’s owner at the time) in 1994, the company phased out the original Mini lineup by 2000, replacing the models with a new and modern era for the Mini brand under BMW ownership.
With the company based in the United Kingdom, current Mini models are built and assembled at various plants across Europe. Beyond its traditional lineup, Mini is also involved in motorsports and rally races, and has pledged to electrify its entire lineup by 2030.
