Last week MINI’s new design director Oliver Heilmer announced that he’s potentially looking new MINI models to either add to or replace existing models.
“The first Mini was built out of a need. I would like to understand what the needs in the next five to six years will be. We want to look at customers who are 13, 14, 15 years old now. What is their aesthetic approach? It’s obviously influenced by smartphones. But if we understand it right, we can bring this into the future.”
Our question to MF readers – what new models do you want to see? Pickup? Sedan? Roadster? Knowing that BMW can’t accommodate anything smaller than the F56 (much less sell it globally), anything pocket sized is likely off the table.
