Confirmed: BMW Will Build an Electric MINI by 2019

MINI Vision

In just over two years you will be able to buy an electric MINI. According to a Bloomberg interview with BMW Chief Executive Officer Harald Krueger specifics like range and cost haven’t been defined for the electric MINI at this time. Also in the works is an electric version of BMW’s popular mid-size X3 crossover.

While this news is expected, it’s still interesting to see the apparent urgency in the announcement. The BMW board didn’t attend the ongoing Paris Motorshow to deliberate on this issue.

The chassis, design and the drivetrain specifics are unknown at this time but given the 2019 timeframe BMW should have answers for those questions soon. Which means we should have answers for you as well.

What do you think about the idea of Ana electric MINI? Would you be interested in making the move to all electric?
