The upcoming series production electric Mini will be unveiled in 2019, and was foreshadowed in 2017 by the Mini Electric Concept, which was revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The 2019 launch will coincide with the 60th anniversary of the classic Mini. The production vehicle will be built at the car maker’s plant in Oxford, UK.
