Electrified MINI models record strongest sales growth since market launch.

The surge in interest in electric MINI vehicles persisted through 2022. The all-electric MINI Cooper SE, a locally emission-free vehicle, is by far the most popular MINI model, seeing a 25.5 percent increase in sales compared to 2021 and 43,744 units sold worldwide. Its combined electricity consumption is 17.6 to 15.2 kWh/100 km per WLTP; its combined CO2 emissions are 0 g/km.

Purely electric vehicle sales, which already make up 15% of all global sales, are on the increase once more in Europe, where over 27,000 units of the MINI Electric are expected to be sold in 2022. This indicates that the MINI Cooper SE already makes up 22% of all sales. Particularly in Germany, France, and the UK, sales of the MINI Electric increased significantly. The all-electric MINI 3-door recorded the largest share of total sales in Scandinavia, at 45 percent.

In 2022, MINI further expanded its global offering for locally emission-free premium mobility with the sales launch of the all-electric MINI Cooper SE in Korea. These developments are evidence of the continued strong interest of the global MINI community in locally emission-free electric mobility.

"The continued success of MINI models with electric drive confirms the brand's path to an all-electric future. With a clear focus on sustainability with a minimal environmental footprint, MINI is attracting more and more customers worldwide who enjoy the electrified go-kart feeling," says Stefanie Wurst, Head of MINI.

Focus on new markets and target groups successful.

In 2022, MINI will see significant growth as a result of strategic development with a focus on new markets and target groups. For instance, sales in Japan increased by 7% over the prior year to 19,530 units sold. Additionally, there was significant increase in the markets in India, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, and New Zealand, which ended 2022 with the biggest sales totals ever.

Additionally, MINI is spreading its social commitment globally and exhibiting BIG LOVE for the Planet. Under the motto "we assist to spread BIG LOVE," MINI, its dealers, and the MINI community donated almost 680,000 euros to charitable organizations in the UK last year.
