We love seeing new production and concept vehicles from the clever folks at MINI. Last month’s Paris Motor Show saw the reveal of the MINI Scooter E and the Countryman WRC race car. But can there be too much of a good thing? According to Autocar, Design leads Gert Hildebrand and Adrian van Hooydonk say yes. In fact, they’ve got more fun stuff to show us in the future, but they’re giving us all a chance to “get used to” the current crop of new MINIs, especially the Countryman, before we see anything else. continued →

Ian Robertson, Board Member for Sales and Marketing at BMW Group, introduced MINI’s exhibit to the Paris Motor Show yesterday. Below is the transcript of his remarks, introduced by Philippe Dehennin, President of BMW Group France.

Philippe Dehennin: “Bonjour and thank you for joining us at MINI! My name is Philippe Dehennin and I am the President of BMW Group France. Ten years ago, MINI stole the show here in Paris when the long-awaited new MINI was unveiled.The new MINI was greeted warmly in Paris and by fans all over the world. As the world’s first premium small car, the MINI has been an unparalleled success since then. In France, people love the MINI because of its unbeatable urban “chic”: a brand which knows how to combine authenticity with novelty, and style with excitement. And Parisians love its extroverted and likeable character! MINI has this little “quelque-chose” as we Frenchmen like to say, that can make even the most stressed out Parisian smile. continued →
