MotoringFile broke the news of MINI’s plugin hybrid 18 months ago. Since then we’ve had a steady drip of news on the new drivetrain. Today we get a healthy dose of data in the form of an official preview. No, the 2 Series Gran Truismo BMW has used to showoff the technology isn’t a MINI, but the drivetrain detailed here is identical to drivetrain that will be found in a future MINI product. continued →

P90151083-MINI Superleggera Vision Roadster ConceptThis week, Autocar decided  there’s still hope that the Superleggera will enter production.

2016-MINI-Clubman-1

MINI is on the eve of beginning pre-production of its most important 2016 model. The completely new 2016 MINI Clubman will re-focus the model on catering to small families with four doors, fives seats and a larger boot (to boot). All told this new Clubman will be the largest MINI by length and width to date. Based on the same UKL platform as the F56, this stretched version will take all the tech and drivetrain that consumers love on the current MINI hatch and combine it with a ton more space and utility in a wagon like silhouette. In many ways this list is the MINI that we at MF wanted the Countryman to be. continued →

Last year MINI showed us the thinly vieled Clubman concept that gave us an excellent view of the 2016 model. The new Clubman will be the largest MINI to date and feature a full six doors (four full doors plus two barn doors). It will also have a number of features not seen on MINIs to date including a patented BMW aero technology called “Air Curtain.” Together with the “Air Breather” the system reduces drag on the bodyshell in a very simple, but extremely effective way.
