MINI-E May Return

With the advent of the UKL platform a full electric MINI-E could be added to the MINI line up, according to autobloggreen, based on statements, made to BMW Blog by BMW Board Member in charge of MINI, Peter Schwarzbauer:
BMW Blog talked to Mini brand manager Peter Schwarzbauer about the possibility of a new electric Mini and he said, "It fits perfectly with the brand, and I am convinced that we will offer a suitable solution." One reason an electrifying Mini makes sense is because the new third-gen model will be built on the UKL1 platform. This platform is going to be able to handle a variety of powertrains, including "various" hybrid configurations, BMW Blog says, adding that the Clubman model would be a "prime candidate" for a battery injection.
