electric Mini models to be built in China
According AutoCar: "BMW says it will be used for “production of future electric Mini vehicles”, along with several Great Wall models, but hasn't offered specifics of the models that will be built there. The Mini Electric, due on sale early next year, will be built at Plant Oxford, and BMW said that site “will remain the heart and home of Mini manufacturing, while the Spotlight Automotive joint venture will provide additional capacity and flexibility.”
It's interesting to see the shift in manufacturing and so far it seems existing production of other vehicles in China is going well. I guess if it wasn't for this, we might not have a Mini EV!
