The best selling MINI in 2023 was the ancient MINI Cooper SE making up 15.3% of global MINI sales for the full year. Looking further sales of electrified vehicles (incl. plug-in hybrids) represent 20.8% of total MINI sales. Those datapoints only get more impressive when you realize just how old both of those products are. It also makes MINIs bet to quickly become an electric brand look like a good one.

In its last full year of availability, the current MINI generation experienced a surge in sales figures in 2023 totaling 295.474 vehicles, marking a 0,9% increase in comparison to the previous year. A big aspect of this success was the increase in the adoption of Battery Electric Vehicles. 45,261 customers bought the fully-electric MINI Cooper SE (including the limited production run MINI Cooper SE Convertible). This is a 3.5% rise in the sales of the Cooper SE despite its limited appeal due to range and size.
