New Mini Set To Debut On November 18

The BMW-owned company has chosen the 107th birthday of the iconic car’s  creator, Sir Alec Issigonis, as the date for the next Mini’s global  debut. The reveal will take place at the  Mini production plant in Oxford and will be followed up with a party in London  before the new car heads to Los Angles and Tokyo for its first motor show  appearances, two days later.

One of the world’s most enduring automotive brands, the Mini has been in production since 1959 and was revolutionary  upon its launch.

The first car with a transversely-mounted engine to save space and improve  balance, the Mini was nimble, surprisingly spacious and because it had one wheel  at every corner, was great fun to drive. As such it was not only a hit with car  buyers it also established itself as a serious race and rally car.

Since rescuing the brand some 19 years ago, BMW has done everything it can to  recapture that excitement and to align the Mini with innovation and excitement  and for the most part it has succeeded.

BMW has confirmed that the car will feature new engines, new chassis  technologies, even greater levels of quality and comfort and a host of connected  car features.
