MINI Electric wins Sunday Times Motor Awards 2020

MINI Electric wins 'best British-built car of the year'.

A feel-good moment for our feel-good MINI Electric; the Best British-built Car of the Year win is particularly special to us. Plant Oxford worked hard, training up to become a multi-skilled, flexible team who can work on both traditional combustion engine cars, as well as electric ones.

“It’s a car that brings a smile to your face every time you get in it, and the fact that it’s built in Britain adds enormously to the unique appeal.” – The Sunday Times

We’re proud to build our MINI Electric models here in Oxford, and honoured to win Best British-Built Car. Why not take it for a drive and try for yourself?

John Cooper Works GP

Clarkson's 'People's car of the year' goes to MINI John Cooper Works GP.

We knew when we were designing the MINI John Cooper Works GP that we were onto something special. And now we’ve got the accolade to prove it. With no excess weight, there’s nothing holding the MINI John Cooper Works GP back. Which is how it became the fastest MINI ever. And the thundering performance is backed up by a heart-racing design. Check it out for yourself.

“It is too loud, too powerful and a crazed dog on the motorway, but it is also one of the best cars I’ve driven all year.” – Jeremy Clarkson
