This is from the Sunday Mirror (UK):
BRITAIN'S new Mini is so successful that its makers BMW want to build an extra assembly line in the Green Belt.
New figures show 95,168 Minis have been sold worldwide in the first half of 2004 – up nearly six per cent on last year. Now the old plant is nearing its 200,000 car-a-year limit.
Based on this and other previous reports it looks like a safe bet that the BMW group is indeed planning to expand the MINI plant in Oxford/Crowly. Really the only real question is what else will they be making there?
