Mini Restricted To Five Models

Written By:

Mini has recently revealed that their modern generation model line up will be restricted to only five models. This news came into light during a show at Munich.

Peter Schwarzenbauer, the head of the Mini brand, said that the upcoming model, the Countryman which will make an international debut in 2015 will be the third model of the iconic car.

The first two models are the recently launched three-door and five-door cars, which was debuted on the 19th of November, this year.

The fourth model could be a soft top or a convertible version and the fifth model of the Mini is still a question mark.

Schwarzenbauer said that will be plug-in versions of the Mini in course of time.  He added, "This is work in progress, but we are continually questioning Mini's future. The heritage will still be important, but we also have to be shaped by the zeitgeist."

The two recently launched cars are powered by a 1.5-litre, 3-cylinder, Mini TwinPower turbo diesel engine, that produces 114 horsepower and a peak torque of 270 Nm. Both the models are equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission.
