Mini to unveil all-electric convertible in 2025
The British company will unveil the open-top car to rival Fiat's 500 C.
If you are a young British bloke who wants to enjoy summer sunshine in a British convertible - in other words, Tom Harwood - but also wants to save the world, then I have GOOD NEWS! Mini is going to produce a zero-emission convertible to sit alongside the regular electric Mini.
This news follows announcement that the next-gen Mini will be unveiled in 2023; it will be much smaller and it will use an all-electric platform made in collaboration with Mini and Chinese car maker Great Wall Motors.
In addition to that, the car will almost certainly be built in Mini's factory in Zhangjiagang. The car is expected to rival the Fiat 500 C electric, and possibly an electric convertible from VW, most likely based on the ID.3 hatchback.
Commenting on the announcement, CEO of Mini Bernd Korber - very British name indeed - stated, "The MINI Convertible has a large and particularly loyal fan base. This is also shown by the great demand for the latest, freshly updated model. We are therefore firmly convinced of the success of this vehicle concept for the future."
