It's official, Mini will shut down three production plants in the UK including Cowley that produces the Mini EV:

"BMW's Rolls-Royce and Mini brands said they will stop production at their plants in the UK.

Rolls-Royce said it would suspend production at its plant in Goodwood, England, on Monday for two weeks. The suspension will be followed by an already-planned two-week Easter maintenance shutdown.

Mini will shut its three UK plants on Monday until April 17, the brand said. Mini builds cars in its Oxford factory, engines in its Hams Hall plant, and body parts in its Swindon facility."

It was bound to happen eventually, every major carmaker seems to be shutting down production. It's insane how much this virus has spread.
